Flying Burgers from British Airways

Flying Burgers from British Airways

There are few greater culinary delights than a juicy burger, and from next month British Airways customers will be able to enjoy the airline’s first specially created gourmet burger on flights.

The BA burger.

The ‘Flying Burger’ recipe has been specially honed by British Airways chefs over the past 10 months. The team of chefs use three different cuts of British beef (chuck, cheek and onglet) to ensure full flavour, even at 35,000 ft, where your ability to taste reduces by 30 per cent.

Mark Tazzioli, British Airways’ chef, said: “Burgers are experiencing a renaissance right now, with pop up burger bars and food trucks opening in all the major cities. Burgers are the ultimate tasty satisfying treat and ‘comfort food’ we crave when flying. It has taken months of trials to ensure we get the perfect texture and succulence, not just for the British palate, but for the hundreds of other nationalities that fly with us. As taste buds are affected at altitude, we have created an original patty, which has proven extremely popular in taste-tests.”

Served with a side of triple cooked chips and choice of relishes, the ‘Flying Burger’ is currently exclusive to First customers in the ‘bistro menu’ of British Airways’ long-haul flights from June.

The airline will also serve a ‘Grounded Burger’ in its First and Concorde lounges for customers – featuring a different recipe for pre-flight dining.

Appealing to a truly global audience, the ‘Flying Burger’ caters to the hundreds of international customers flying with the airline.
