BRITISH Airways – the UK’s flagship carrier which operates daily flights from Doha to London Heathrow – has revealed it will serve over 38,000 Christmas dinners on its flights during the forthcoming festive season, a spokesperson said yesterday. Passengers returning to Doha following Christmas holidays abroad will be offered a range of traditional, seasonal dishes on all of British Airways’ outbound flights from Heathrow in the run up to December 25. The menu will also include a traditional meal of turkey with all the trimmings, rich chocolate log and a handmade Christmas cake. The Christmas cake, which comes from Ogmore Vale Bakery in South Wales, is a recipe from the 1930s. The cake, a rich fruit mixture with nuts and spices which is baked and topped with marzipan and icing, will be served in World Traveller (economy) and World Traveller Plus (premium economy) cabins in December. British Airways’ commercial manager, Middle East Paul Starrs said: “A large proportion of our passengers coming into Doha this Christmas will include family members visiting relatives or holiday makers escaping the British winter. What better way to get them into an early festive spirit.”
