I'll disagree with you (partially). BA have yet to make anything tasty on the flights I've taken with them - and a indeed they served a cooked breakfast that's amongst the foulest food I've ever been served.
On the other hand, I've had some wonderful food flying with asian carriers (e.g. Royal Brunei, Emirates, Malaysian, etc.). Food that I'd be very happy to eat in a restaurant.
I recall also, discussing BA food with a room-mate in a Youth Hostel in Sydney. He'd just resigned from his 'chef' job making food for BA in England, as he just couldn't stomach doing what he was having to produce.

I almost mentioned... my comments related to cattle class on all journeys / with all carriers, as I've never flown anything else. I understand that the higher classes at BA are a noticeable step up, and in their day, the wine selection used to be very fine.

This was a marked improvement -- actual chairs and table and adult-sized silverware AND more nap time.

Yes (I omitted that above among BA food rituals!) and it is useful when changing planes in Heathrow. BA offers basically snacks and light meals in those transit lounges.

2. Natural sources in food (like roast meats or fermented foods) can give more dietary glutamate than soy sauce or an MSG-happy cook, implying illogic in singling out Chinese restaurants.
3. Atop many hundred (sometimes allergenic) natural chemical constituents of restaurant foods comes an avalanche of sodium, which may produce most true MSG-attributable morbidity in a final accounting.
