BA Cityflyer to change catering policy

8 Sep 2009 by Mark Caswell

Until now BA’s Cityflyer has operated a separate catering policy to the carrier’s mainline division at Heathrow.

So although BA short-haul economy passengers flying from London’s main airport have seen reduced catering since early August (see online news July 29) those departing London City (LCY) with Cityflyer have been spared the cutbacks.

It means that BA Cityflyer passengers are offered a hot breakfast on domestic and European routes up to 1000, with snacks and a bar service until around 1700 when hot dinners are served.

But take advantage of the free food while you can. A BA Cityflyer spokeswoman confirmed to Business Traveller that the airline is “reviewing its catering and expects to move in line with BA mainline from the end of September.”

This will co-incide with Cityflyer's rollout of its new Embraer 170 jets, the first of which is due to go into service on September 28 (see online news September 7 for more information).

BA Cityflyer operates various domestic and mainland European routes out of LCY covering cities such as Edinburgh and Glasgow along with Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Madrid and Zurich.
