Thumbs down All Day Deli

Referring to the BA Demise thread I preferred getting a proper english breakfast, nice lunch or an evening meal, then on return a meal of the local culture. What is happening with this all day deli? If you fly a day return, will you get the same ham and cheddar sandwich and mullerice on the return journey as you did on the way?

Deli, you call that Deli?
Deli owners of the world, they are seriously defaming your good name. Ham and cheddar? ham...Struth. Bad marketing.
If it isn't a 3 inch high smoked meat sandwich from "Ben's", with Kosher Dills, decent coleslaw... there's another good one on St. Lawrence Street...and a couple more in New York City.
Airline food... take your own. Life is toooo short.

BA will dish you out a breakfast at breakfast time, and dinner at dinner time. AFAIK it's just the in-between times that you get the less-than-impressive All Day Deli packed lunch thing. Do you really want a full meal at 1530 anyway?

...and at last, thanks to All Day Deli, a proper sized cup of tea on the aircraft.

Thumbs up

I recently flew SLF with BA LGW-EDI-LGW on a business trip. We were served cooked breakfast outbound, and the All-Day Deli inbound.

I personally thought it was fine (the sandwich wasn't cheese and ham but some kind of club thingy with chicken and bacon I seem to recall). Nothing spectacular, admittedly, but a perfectly reasonable light afternoon snack.

As an outsider (but a fairly frequent user) of Big Airways, I'm constantly surprised by all the whining on PPRuNe about seemingly anything and everything they do. I've never had a bad experience with them and hold them (and the staff that I've come into contact with) in high regard compared to some other carriers I have flown with. But then again, it seems we can't have anything successful in this country without bitching about it.
