Reply To: British Airways to introduce buy-on-board F&B on short haul services?

Back to Forum


It will be interesting to see how this pans out. I’m not against the idea at all but I think trialling it just after reducing the second service on the shorter long haul flights to virtually nothing and removing the (previously complimentary) snack boxes on the longer flights will be seen as pure profiteering.

IMHO it would go down better if:
– there was still an alternative complimentary snack even if it was just pretzels or biscuits.
– BA doesn’t push sales on board and make annoying announcements etc.

I know Virgin have been offering the same item for sale on board their flights for some time. I’m not sure if they offer complimentary snacks in addition though.
