More Heathrow food facts

Last week Business Travel News reported on Heathrow dining “Food on the Fly”.

Clearly the airport is very much into looking after the well-being of travellers and with many airlines reducing their on-board servings to a minimum says that the 'take onboard' menu option is being used by 17% of passengers.

Heathrow says that Breakfast is the most popular dish of the day at Heathrow, with almost 5m eggs, 6.4m croissants and 4.5m rashers of bacon served every year.  The airport plates up more than 1.5 tonnes of caviar and 25,000 kilos of salmon, and over 240,000 oysters annually.  This seafood requires a garnish of 400,000 lemons every year. 

800,000 glasses of Champagne are consumed annually.

Heathrow gets through over 250,000 pieces of sushi each year, and 630,000 portions of steak.

Earlier this year the airport introduced a number of travel concepts including a picnic area serving a pre-flight relaxation menu of dishes scientifically proven to help people unwind. www.heathrow.com
