British Airways is continuing to roll out a paid meal upgrade scheme, with more destinations receiving the upgraded catering.

It is currently on offer to travellers in economy (World Traveller) class where there are paid upgrades to meals on some long-haul routes.

The new service is now being rolled out to Vancouver, San Francisco and Los Angeles, along with the original destinations of flights from Heathrow to Seattle, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Phoenix, Mexico City, San Diego, Denver and Atlanta.

To order you need to select the upgrade meal option at ba.com/managemybooking between 30 days and 24 hours prior to travel, but only in the economy cabin.

The options are 'Great British Breakfast' (which is offered all day), 'Gourmet Dining' (with beef cheek from Herefordshire), 'Taste of Britain' (including salmon sourced from Loch Fyne), 'Healthy Choice' and 'Vegetarian Kitchen'.

Meals cost £15 to £18. They are typically classified as YUM - or Y class (economy) upgraded meals.

The price is similar to other airlines which have offered the service for years, including Austrian Airlines (which charges £11), Aer Lingus (which has meals priced at €17.50, where each three-course meal will be served with a glass of red or white wine), Air France, and Malaysia Airlines.

The meals available to pre-order are:

Great British Breakfast (£15)
