The items are available on all long-haul flights to and from Heathrow and will launch on all long-haul flights to and from Gatwick on 1st March 2020.

Blankets that are being replaced will be donated to charities and projects in the UK and overseas.

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Customer experience, said: “We want our customers to be able to sit back and really relax on board, making the most of the comfortable new soft furnishings, the in-flight films and programmes and the four-course World Traveller menu.  Our aim is to deliver them to their destination feeling refreshed and feeling their trip is off to a great start.”

These additional changes to the World Traveller offer follow a long list of other recent investments for customers including  73 new aircraft, the refurbishment of the airline’s long-haul fleet with new cabins so they look and feel new, redesigned lounges, new dining across all cabins, new bedding and amenity kits for First, Club World and World Traveller Plus, onboard WiFi to every aircraft and providing access to power at every aircraft seat. The airline recently introduced its Club Suite, a new business class seat with direct aisle access on its A350 aircraft, which will be rolled out across the British Airways' long-haul fleet.
