Are Pillows & Blankets still offered on British Airways?

The most current info was from 2012, so I'm re-asking the question: what amenities does British Airways offer on International Flights (USA to UK) in 2014, specifically in Ecomony Class?

As you know now the answer is yes but I would say they are not so much a pillow and blanket, more a marshmallow and sheet of gauze.

Yes pillows and blankets given. Small pillows and small blankets which are not worth the money BA pays for them. Need better pillows and blankets asap!!

I think it's the same. Only when you are flying business class do you get better stuff.

The blankets are identical in WT and WT+, but the pillows in WT have been - sigh - enhanced to have non-woven shopping bag type covers on them. The pillows in WT+ have cloth covers. The blankets are quite long, but they are not quite wide enough so that one can wrap them around oneself to minimise little drafts sneaking in.

on recent flights with ba, i should have relished 'little drafts'!

they seem to turn the heating up after meal service.
