Fresh Fruit Platter option on British Airway Economy flight?

Hi There,

Has anyone tried the "Fresh Fruit Platter" option on the British Airway Economy flights?

I'm not a large eater, and the option sounds interesting but I don't wish to be picking an option for my whole flight which I end up regretting. So, has anyone tried it? Any comments?

My flight is Singapore to London, and they provided me with such an option.

Cheers.

This meal will vary day-to-day, airline-to-airline. It all depends on the type of fruits available on the day. If you prefer fruit as opposed to a chicken/fish meal, then choose the fruit.

personally, i would choose the 'regular' meal and take a few pieces of fruit in my hand luggage.

Are you sure you want to do that? You get fruit & salads with most meals anyway, so you could always have a regular or other special meal & pick at it. It's a long flight!

We always take our own snacks onto long haul flights as we don't eat the airline meals.

What kind of snacks would you take for 2 adults and 2 teenagers?

We always take meal replacement snack bars. Basically trail mix in a bar (nuts& dried fruit- plenty of flavors-even chocolate!) .

Many have added protein which replaces any of the protein in the airline meal we don't choose to eat. They are somewhat filling, enough to tide you over til you find a more enjoyable meal, and easy to carry.

I would get the regular meal but as others have said take along a few snacks as airline food can be very hit and miss so at least you'll have something to eat if what they serve isn't to your liking.
