The spend is part of the airline’s current GBP4.5 billion (USD5.85 billion) investment plan and will focus on enhancing the food and drink options.
From September 12 the airline will introduce new menus with improved recipes and signature warm breads. There is also a commitment to provenance, with dishes developed around key British ingredients.
Launch options will include shaved Herefordshire roast beef on a tartar cream with rocket, British Reared Pork sausage and mash and a celebration of British cheeses.
On the airline’s longer short haul flights to destinations such as Faro, customers will now have the choice of two hot options and one cold. Menus on flights to and from Heathrow will also be changed twice a month, rather than monthly.
