Special meal

We offer deliciously different meals to cater for a range of tastes, including meals for kids and vegetarians. If you have more specific dietary requirements, such as gluten intolerant, kosher* or halal, we can cater for that too, but you’ll need to request them in advance. You can see all the special meal types we offer below.

You can order a meal to suit your dietary needs up to 24 hours before your flight*, and get onboard knowing you’ll have a carefully considered dish waiting for you. 

*Kosher meals require 48 hours notice.

How we cater to allergies

Your health, safety and comfort is the most important thing to us. If you have allergies, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you can enjoy your flight without worrying about a thing. Make sure you contact Special Assistance in advance of your flight so we have plenty of time to arrange everything you need. 

Our nut and allergen policy

We adhere to allergen guidance under European and UK food legislation, which may be different in other jurisdictions. The allergens declared refer to the ingredients only, the food items may contain traces of allergens since they are processed on or with equipment that processes products that may contain allergens.

We cannot guarantee the absence of food allergen or peanut traces in our meals, both on board and at the airport.  A list of food allergens contained in meals served on flights departing from the UK and USA is available on board from your Cabin Crew.

Our suppliers are based all around the world and not every country has the same legal requirements for providing allergen information. On flights to the UK, allergen labelling on pre-packaged items may not reflect all of the allergens required to be declared in the UK. For passengers flying from the USA, we also adhere to the three additional Nuts listed under US Allergen advisory information.

Peanuts are never knowingly included in any of our meals on board. However, our meals are not produced in a nut-free environment so may contain traces.

All other nuts may also be served on our flights to other passengers as part of the menu ingredients and/or the snack service, in any cabin. We also can’t stop other passengers from bringing (or eating) their own food onboard, which may include nuts.

In view of the above, we strongly encourage passengers to take all necessary precautions to prepare for the possibility of inadvertent exposure.
