BA halves business-only flights to NY

Using two specially adapted Airbus A318s the twice-daily service between London City and New York provides an experience specially tailored for business, and premium leisure, travellers. The aircraft are specially equipped to allow customers to work during the flight on email, the internet and text on their mobile phones, making British Airways the first carrier across the Atlantic to offer this service. Menus onboard are created by head chef of Roast restaurant Lawrence Keogh. They include British regional specialties and classic afternoon tea of sandwiches and warm scones served with English preserves and Cornish clotted cream. The menu will change according to the availability of British grown produce, many of which will be sourced from stallholders at Borough market itself.
