BA's Race To The Bottom - Except On Prices!

The Telegraph reports that British Airways is racing to the bottom, wrt inflight etxras etc.

Disgruntled cabin crew have provided a list to BA management of recent changes they say are diminishing the carrier’s reputation, the Sunday Times reported, including the loss of first-class perks, such as free amuse-bouches with customers’ first drink, no more fresh flowers in the first class toilets, and the downsizing of complimentary washbags.

One cabin crew employee, who has been with the airline for 12 years, told the newspaper staff were “embarrassed by the state of the product. The only thing not being cut is the prices”.

BA To Offer less Legroom Than Ryanair

British Airways, in an attempt to take on the budget airlines, is cutting the amount of legroom for economy passengers by squeezing two more rows of seats onto its Airbus aircraft.

BA will reduce the gap between seats from 30 inches to 29 inches on the A320 and A321 planes in its fleet, meaning it will offer the same legroom as easyJet.

However, Ryanair offers its passengers 30 inches of legroom.

Cue the next Ryanair advert!

BA claim this move is in the interests of its customers, in that it will be able to offer lower fares.

Whether that is true or not, only time will tell. However, unless people start slimming down, less legroom makes for a very uncomfortable journey!

BA To Abandon Free Short Haul Meals

In an apparent bid to compete with its low-fare airline rivals, British Airways is considering abandoning its policy of giving away complimentary meals to all of its passengers. 

BA is considering charging short-haul customers for "upmarket" (probably sourced from Waitrose) meals and snacks.
