British Airways has made changes to what economy class passengers on short-haul flights get to eat. The airline has struck up a deal with Marks & Spencer to replace its free meals on flights under five hours with pay-to-eat snacks, drinks, and sandwiches. Before now, economy passengers could expect to be served a small snack and a free drink but BA’s deal puts it in the same group as easyJet and Ryanair in charging for drinks, crisps (potato chips), and sandwiches. This decision was made six months after Alex Cruz took over as BA’s chief executive. He said that passengers have been asking for a better choice of “upmarket snacks.”
The change will start on January 11 for travellers flying from Gatwick and Heathrow; anyone leaving from London City or Stansted will get a free snack until summer 2017.
