For those travelling in economy, I would imagine this will increase choice, while helping keep fares low.
This is especially important for leisure travellers especially prevalent at Gatwick, with the ever present threat of competition from the LCCs.
There are still differentiators between BA’s “High Value” offering and a true “Low Cost/Lower Value” operation.
I still hope the drinks remain free, as well as breakfast, and that this will provide a limited range of sandwiches on board for purchase for those who haven’t had an opportunity to eat on the ground.
Pleased to see this development.
