British Airways is reducing its on board food service and partnering with M&S to begin charging for food on short haul flights.
From January 11th 2017, British Airways will start charging for food on short haul flights from Gatwick and Heathrow (at from next summer on flights from London City and Stansted). The good news? You’ll be able to buy Percy Pigs on board!
After earlier reports that the airline would be reducing its on board food service on long haul flights, British Airways is partnering with M&S in an effort to offer customers “a choice of products they recognise and value”.
Food will be selected from M&S’s current supermarket range and prices will range from £1 for a packet of crisps to £4.95 for a hot bacon bun, with BA aiming to price itself competitively compared with other airlines which charge for food such as Ryanair, EasyJet and Norwegian.
Meals on long haul flights will remain free of charge.
What do you think of the move?
