Mark Sargeant has partnered with American Airlines to design an exclusive menu for ‘flagship first class' passengers travelling from London to the US.

The à la carte menu, which launched yesterday (1 September) features dishes inspired by Sargeant's UK restaurants.

It will be available on flights from London Heathrow to Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Dallas.

Fernand Fernandez, vice-president of global marketing at American Airlines, said: "Mark hand-crafted the first class cabin menus for our London to US routes, using fresh ingredients and innovative flavour combinations to create a delicious modern menu.

"We're continuing to invest in our products, fleet and services, and partnering with some of the world's finest chefs is just one way we're personalising the experience for our customers."

Sargeant added: "It is an honour to be asked to create a menu for the world's largest airline.

"American has taken a leap to do something different and exciting, and my team and I have been very involved at every stage of the process.

"Together we have designed a creative menu that is delicious and appealing to the eye, using great quality ingredients to get the palette watering at altitude."

The menu will include poached native lobster and roasted duck with hoisin barbecue sauce to start, followed by slow-cooked West Country pork belly with fennel seed and white bean cassoulet or barbecue short rib of Angus beef with sweet potato champ and red cabbage slaw for the main course.

Desserts include a warm-spiced Victoria plum crumble with English custard or vanilla ice-cream.
