British Airways Business Class (Club Europe) Food Review

August 20, 2018

Recently I had the chance to fly from London Gatwick (LGW) to Seville (SVQ), Spain in business class with British Airways (BA2796).

At Gatwick this also gives you business class check-in, priority security and BA executive club lounge access. The lounge was pretty good as always – champagne, hot and…

Seemingly the success of this has allowed them to open a smaller and even more informal restaurant near Covent Garden, London. Set on a corner on Adelaide street, with no restaurants around it, opposite a couple of old pubs, backed by…

May 13, 2012

It’s only been open a week or so, and is set in Jubilee Hall in Covent Garden. I wonder how long…
