At the Heathrow you can buy the most chic in-flight meal


So we’ve seen airlines serving Michelin-star meals and vintage wines onboard business and first class cabins. We’ve also seen economy meals get a much deserved upgrade on many airlines but if grabbing a quick meal before you board your flight is your preferred choice, Fortnum & Mason, the upmarket store in central London, has now created the ultimate in-flight meal for you.
