Finally!!! So so glad the former menu has gone as I was well and truly fed up with it.

6 month cycles for the Upper Class menus is ridiculous and shows VS are still in cost-cutting mode >-(

They are still virtue signalling about reducing their environmental impact

Pretty stupid really when my return tickets costs £8000 a time.

Interested to see the full menu because at this point for my next flight I'll just load up at the Clubhouse.

I'd love the chocolate lava cake to come back. That was delicious.

I disagree, I think its important. I'm a partial veggie anyway mainly for environmental reasons and I'd say I've cut out a good 75% of meat these days.

The actual physical act of flying at this point in time with current tech is heavily carbon intensive. Everything else we do to reduce carbon and the environmental impact in other areas might only be drops in the ocean, but combined drops start to make an impact.

That's a personal choice, that you shouldn't try forcing on other people.

The cabon cost of a seat in upper is far higher that all the meat a person would eat in a year?

Can we please keep this thread on topic not have it turn into another 'why VS don't serve beef' debate....which every menu thread now seems to turn into.

The fact is VS do not serve beef on the ground nor in the air. If you want beef you will need to fly a different airline, end of discussion.

At least the Menu has finally changed!!

The Crab and Lobster Tortellini sounds interesting, but if on the menu for 6 months, I too will be looking to stock up in the Clubhouse.

Still no soup back as a starter - quite poor.

On the beef topic - I get it, I don't see why they don't add it as a pre-order option now - it should be down to personal choice.

Just ordered from the new menu for our flight next week. Other items not mentioned but available for pre-order are a couple of curries and braised lamb with garlic mash.

Here's some (not brilliant) pics from my flight at the weekend.

Crispy coated chicken breast.

Chocolate cup (quite literally a cup)

Crispy Yukon potatoes with cocotte egg. Really didn't like the seeds on top of this thing, ruined a half-decent option in my opinion.

I now have the Pre-Select Menu for Upper for my flight from LHR - SFO on 29th April for those that want to know the current offerings.

Unfortunately no photographs so you will have to use your own imagination.

Alas the lamb option is currently not available and apparently shouldn't have displayed for us. Mr Kitty has been offered his first choice from the onboard menu as an alternative

Thank you Alpha Echo :cool:
Your post is extremely helpful to both Mrs Buns and myself!

Plenty of choices to last us through the next six months :-D

Thanks once again

Looks like your link is sill the summer 2022 menu flyingfox. The version I saw (prior to the announcement) was this:

Main menu

Breakfast menu

The quality isn't great but it should be readable.
