Onboard BMI

Depending on whether you are flying economy or Business class, short haul or long haul, you will receive a free in-flight meal of some description. Breakfast wraps are the norm on short haul economy while a full-breakfast is more like it in Business class. Long haul routes offer passengers a menu with a choice of entrée as well as a main and a drink. In Business class you will be greeted with a glass of bubbly before choosing your starter main and dessert. There are plenty of duty free items to be purchased on board while the in-flight movies, TV programmes and computer games should keep passengers entertained for the duration of their flight. The in-flight magazine, Voyager, is also on hand.
