On Thursday (February 1, 2024), British Airways announced the launch of a special Lunar New Year menu, celebrating the ‘Year of the Dragon.’  Customers in all cabins traveling between London and Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore can enjoy the festive menu, which features traditional dishes that signify luck and prosperity.  Additionally, British Airways’ team members will gift traditional treats in symbolic red envelopes to customers traveling through London Heathrow Terminal 5, with some lucky customers enjoying a surprise upgrade.  Lion dancers will also be performing on the concourse. 

In Thursday’s announcement, British Airways’ Chief Customer Officer, Calum Laming, said,

“Many of our customers will be celebrating the Lunar New Year this month and reuniting with family and friends, so we wanted to make their journey extra special this festive season.  For those celebrating we’d like to wish them a very Happy Year of the Dragon from everyone at British Airways.”

British Airways' First Class guests can enjoy black pepper sliced fillet of beef with Chinese seven-spiced broccolini, while Club World (Business Class) customers can order spicy Kung Pao prawn, a dish once served in the Chinese Imperial Palace.  For dessert, First and Club World customers will be treated to a white chocolate tangerine mousse, a fruit that symbolizes gold in Chinese culture. World Traveller Plus (Premium Economy) and World Traveller (Economy) customers can also enjoy the traditional Huaiyang dish, Lion’s Head meatballs, which are made of steamed pork and oyster sauce, and signify family unity.
