Dietary Needs

We’re delighted to cater for your in-flight food requirements to and from North America. We just ask that you make your request at least 24 hours before your flight departure.

Our special meals are listed in the table below. We take pride in our food and all of our special meals are prepared using the finest ingredients and balanced with the recommended intake of calories. Unfortunately we can’t offer variations of these, and requests for specific items of food to suit personal preferences can’t be accepted.

If you make your booking over the phone, you can add a special meal at that time. If you forget, or if you booked online, don't worry as you can add a special meal request up to 24 hours before your flight departure time. Contact us and we’ll be delighted to help you. Please check that you’ve got your booking reference to hand to make things easier.

Once on board the aircraft, it’s always a good idea to let cabin crew know that you’ve ordered a special meal.

Note the 4-letter code in the table below. This is the standard airline code for particular special meals and you’ll notice this appearing in different places during the course of your trip.

Type of Meal Code Description

While we don’t serve peanuts or derivatives as part of snacks or meals, there may be trace elements of unspecified peanut ingredients (including peanut oils) in meals and snacks. Regrettably, we cannot offer a special meal that is nut/peanut-free. We also can’t prevent other passengers from bringing nut-based products on board and consuming them during the course of a flight and therefore strongly encourage customers with allergies to take all necessary medical precautions to prepare for the possibility of exposure.

If you suffer from a peanut allergy, please make our cabin crew aware of this whilst you’re boarding.
