Bangers and mash and a dollop of gravy now awaits premium flyers.

British Airways wants its customers to tuck into the ‘Best of Britain’ with a promise that its long-haul menus in First Class and Club World will include the country’s favourite traditional foods.

Think lip-smacking 21-day aged roast beef, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding; chicken pie with mash, pork pie with piccalilli and sausage and mash.

Vegetarians won’t be left out, either, with BA using British produce in dishes such as butternut squash gnocchi with blue cheese sauce and handmade ricotta mezzaluna with truffle cream and grilled asparagus.

The airline said it has worked with farmers, caterers and producers to find great quality ingredients, “advocating farm to fork”.

Sajida Ismail, head of inflight said, “As we look ahead to welcoming back customers who may not have flown for a while, we wanted to mark the occasion by offering a really special menu that celebrates the best of Britain.”

Separately, BA has announced new transit options at Singapore Changi to multiple destinations in Asia.

Eligible customers travelling on British Airways from London to Singapore will now be able to connect seamlessly to Jetstar Asia services to Bangkok, Phuket, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Jakarta, Surabaya, Manila, Clark, Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City.
