Anger as BA slashes number of meals


Cost-saving measure applied to many long-haul flights
British Airways is under fire for cutting its food service for economy passengers, no longer giving them two meals on flights of less than eight-and-a-half hours.
The same cost-cutting measures apply for premium economy on journeys of less than seven hours.
Instead, these passengers will get just one meal, plus a possible snack if they feel hungry later in the flight. Choices of complimentary snacks and alcohol are not affected.
The new rules, which are already in effect, apply for example to flights between the UK and the east coast of North America, such as New York, Toronto and Montreal.
“We offer customers on all of our transatlantic flights a three-course meal, bar service and snacks and on our longer transatlantic flights, including to the west coast, customers are offered an extra meal during the flight,” a BA spokesman said.
