First Class

Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, the safety of our customers and our colleagues has been our biggest priority and we have done everything we can to make journeys as safe as possible. This has meant some changes to our first class offering.

We have reintroduced a limited catering offer in First Class on weekdays. This will comprise of a morning and afternoon complimentary bag and a selection of hot drinks. With safety in mind the bag will be prepacked and sealed to reduce the handling of products and will be delivered to your seat by our on board hosts.
