Passengers flying with British Airways on Valentine’s Day will be treated with a range of special touches and sweet treats on the ground and in the skies.

For those in First Class, the airline’s culinary experts have created a bespoke Valentine’s Day afternoon tea, comprised of a range of finger sandwiches, a chocolate orange Battenberg, raspberry tart and a chocolate love heart cookie. To accompany the sweet treats, passengers can select from the Warre’s Colheita 2009 Tawny Port or the Sauternes, both carefully selected by the airline’s Master of Wine.

For those travelling in Club World, the airline has created a chocolate mousse dessert and a raspberry and rosewater Valentine’s macaroon as part of the afternoon tea in Club Europe. For passengers wishing to pair these sweet treats with a tipple, the airline recommends Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve Ruby Port.

The airline has also launched a dedicated "Love is in the air" inflight entertainment channel available in every cabin, offering a range of romantic classics and binge-worthy boxsets such as Bridget Jones’s Diary, You’ve Got Mail and The Mating Game.

Passengers travelling through its lounges on February 14 can also enjoy some Valentine’s Day treats and floral decor. In British Airways’ Galleries and First lounges at Heathrow Terminal 5, passengers can enjoy Whispering Angel, Baileys’ popular Strawberries and Cream liqueur and a selection of luxury chocolates before departure.

In a February 8 press release, Calum Laming, British Airways’ Chief Customer Officer, said: “Whether our customers are heading off on a romantic break, a half-term family getaway or a solo adventure for one, we know that every journey is original and indeed special. We hope these little gestures go a long way in showing our appreciation and make our customers feel more loved than ever this Valentine’s month.”
