British Airways has cut its food service and will no longer provide two meals to economy travelers on flights lasting less than eight-and-a-half hours. Instead of two full meals, passengers will only receive one as part of the new measures, which also apply to journeys lasting less seven hours for premium economy passengers.

 The choices of alcohol and complimentary snacks will not be affected.

A spokesman for BA said: “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.

”We regularly review our catering to ensure we are investing where it matters most to our customers.”

    Does anybody apart from ElaineB actually fly this airline?

    I gave it up many years ago because of the attitude of the staff and the awful meals.

    This bunch and Iberia deserve one another.

    Still, 8 hours is a long time without food! And if they hit a holding pattern for an hour........

    My in laws got screwed over flying back to Argentina in that Delta disaster. In the USA, it's time to break up the big 3.......in all industries because the free market does not work when they are that big and incompetent.
