Agree, thatís the menu Iíve seen on the website over the last few years when Iíve looked, the actual menu has never been the same as the online sample one.

Pretty sure thatís virtually the same as the menu 2 years ago, definitely the mushroom pasta (which sounded better than it tasted) and the chilli & wedges. Happy theyíve changed the pesto sandwich though.

In case people aren't aware, there are shops in the airport which sell food.

You can actually choose something you really like, take it on the plane and eat it whenever you like.

Hope this helps!

I'm pretty sure everyone is gonna do that too, I know I am. A long flight is boring and thinking about what food and films you are being treated to makes it a bit more exciting!
I will also take at least 20mins to choose a sandwich and then another hour to gather treats and drinks from Costa and any other eaterie I see until we have a huge bulging carrier bag of expensive snacks... that we end up carrying to hotel 😂

Hi, is the tomato pasta a kids meal choice? My son is vegetarian and we were going to order him a veggie meal but he'd be happy with tomato pasta. Also where does it list the films available to watch? We fly in August.

We flew PE out on 1/8 from Manchester and below is a copy of the menu plus some photos. I have multiple intolerances so preordered a fruitplatter which was a disappointment. It was so bad even the staff were embarrassed and the manager came to personally apologise (although i hadnt complained - wasnt the staffís fault). I have removed the fruitplatter option for my return.

Pics:
Main meal menu

Stir fry pork given thumbs up by DS8 and DS15

Chicken option - DH said was good

Afternoon tea menu

Afternoon tea (with the mozarella option)

Fruitplatter main meal- just 2 types of melon and apple slices thrown into 3 dishes to resemble starter, main and dessert (same content in all the bowls)

Fruitplatter afternoon tea: A banana and a tiny pot with appleslices and half an orange slice

Hmm can't wait for my fruit platter 🤔 I was told I'd still get a starter and a dessert... Tempted to just risk the vegetarian meal now
Woah, edited to add I didn't realise I was sacrificing afternoon tea too! Hope it's not too late to change it...

Fingers crossed - I hope you can changed it or if not that your fruitplatter is better than mine !

How can a fruit platter be sooooo wrong. Surely to goodness they had a better variety of fruit to choose from
Iíve ordered it purely on the grounds that the main meal choice was dire !
