BA To Charge For Long Haul Food


Customers of British Airways on their long haul flights may one day have to buy their own food and drink, Alex Cruz the airline’s chairman has disclosed.

BA may widen out its short flight policy of scrapping free food and instead offering passengers the option to buy Marks & Spencer sandwiches.

Alex Cruz is gung-ho about it, seemingly passengers welcome the opportunity to pay for M&S snacks on European short haul flights.

He told the Sunday Times:
It's going great. Customers say to us: 'Finally, I have good choices. No more chicken or beef'."
Asked if the service could be extended to long-haul economy, he said: "We might do it".

What a load of bollocks, of course people don't want to pay more for their flights.

The answer is simple, don't fly BA!

BA Stops Elderly Lady From Using Toilet

The Telegraph reports that British Airways staff have been criticised for stopping an 87-year-old woman from using the toilet on a flight, leaving her sitting in soaking clothes.

Kocharik Tsamouzian was bound for London from Los Angeles but realised she needed to use the bathroom shortly after boarding the plane.

As the flight was delayed on the runway she was repeatedly told she was not allowed to the use the bathroom, with a cabin crew member even reportedly blocking her access in the aisle at one point.
The flight, on December 22 last year, ended up waiting on the runway for 90 minutes, resulting in Mrs Tsamouzian wetting herself.

BA are quoted:
We have been in touch with our customer after what we understand must have been a very distressing experience.

Our highly trained cabin crew always work to make our customers as comfortable as possible, but Civil Aviation Authority safety rules stipulate everyone must remain seated with their seatbelts on after the aircraft has started moving.

The safety and security of our customers is always our top priority.
Clealry BA's PR department hasn't read this:
"Adequate toilet facilities must be maintained and made available to passengers during the delay."

A disgraceful way to treat someone, especially an elderly lady!

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!
