BA ends free short-haul food

Economy passengers to pay for Marks & Spencer snacks
British Airways is further changing its food policy, ending free snacks for economy class passengers on short-haul flights, a move that was hinted at in May.
If they need a bite up in the air, passengers in economy will soon have to pay for sandwiches, which will be supplied by food chain Marks & Spencer.
The IAG-owned airline has signed a deal with M&S where flights of less than five hours will bring in prices for sandwiches, crisps and drinks, placing it among Europe’s low-cost carriers. Club Europe business fliers will get a revamped complimentary menu.
The decision comes six months after Alex Cruz left IAG’s low-cost airline Vueling to take over as British Airways’ chief executive. He says the change is a response to demand for greater choice of upmarket snacks. The M&S menu includes the popular ‘Aberdeen Angus beef and red onion chutney bloomer’ for £4.75 (€5.50) and fruit, nut and seed flapjacks.
