The BBC reports that British Airways is to scrap all free meals, except breakfast, on its short-haul flights to save £22M a year.
Passengers on flights after 10am, which last less than two-and-half hours, will only be served drinks and snacks. They will not have the option to buy food.
A BA spokesman claimed that:
"When you fly with British Airways, the in-flight catering is top-class."
I draw BA's attention to my experiences with their "top-class" catering, as outlined on this site in earlier articles and on my Restaurant Review site as well.
As ever, when a company runs into financial difficulties, it is the customer who suffers.
