BA has announced plans to upgrade its World Traveller Plus premium economy cabin as part of its ongoing £6.5 billion investment in services.

The airline will introduce new menus from February 1 including a third main meal option plus a “more substantial” second hot meal later in the flight.

This will be followed in the spring by new amenity kits, quilts and pillows in the World Traveller Plus cabin.

Carolina Martinoli, BA’s director of brand and customer experience, said: “This latest tranche of our £6.5 billion investment is set to improve World Traveller Plus and customers will see a real change to the cabin.”

Last year BA unveiled a new World Traveller Plus seat at Gatwick featuring a 50 per cent larger entertainment screen, as well as a six-way adjustable leg, foot and headrest. The seat will be installed on the airline’s A350 aircraft, when it comes into service later this year.

World Traveller Plus customers can pre-order their main meal up to 24 hours before departure through BA’s website.
