“We hope that this exclusive First experience will allow our customers who are missing flying to enjoy an amazing dining experience at home,” Hamish McVey, British Airways’ head of brands and marketing, said in a statement. “British Airways, Feast Box and DO & CO take huge pride in offering top quality international cuisine, and although it might appear a little different being delivered to a customer’s door rather than at 38,000 feet, we hope it will be just as exciting.”
"Food is a wonderful way to explore the world and helps to shape our fondest memories,” said Jyoti Patel, the CEO and founder of Feast Box. “Offering people the chance to travel the world through food is at the core of everything we do, so working with British Airways on this First experience has helped to bring Feast Box to life in a very special way."
