British Airways says it will stop giving away free meals on short flights

British Airways announced that it will stop giving away free meals on short-haul flights, instead offering snacks customers can purchase.

Airlines rarely seem to provide customers with a free hot meal during a flight these days, and now British Airways has decided to go along with that trend, as it just announced that it will start charging for meals on its planes.

According to The Telegraph, the new move is an attempt to better compete with low-cost, no-frills airlines. Passengers on shorter flights can no longer expect complimentary meals from the airline, though food will be available for purchase. The airline is reportedly partnering up with the Waitrose premium grocery chain to provide the in-flight snacks that will be available for sale to hungry fliers.

The new plan reportedly only applies to short flights, though. Passengers on long flights can still expect a basic three-course meal to be included in the cost of their ticket. If they want a better one, though, they can pre-order an upgraded meal for a fee.


British Airways to Charge for Seat Options

LONDON -- British Airways PLC Friday said it will start allowing passengers to choose their seats more than 24 hours in advance, but will charge a fee for the service.

From Oct. 7, British Airways will charge economy travelers £10 ($16) each for selecting their preferred seat up to 24 hours before departure on domestic flights or flights within Europe. Travelers flying short-haul business within Europe or long-haul economy trips will be charged £20 each, and those traveling long-haul business will be charged £60.

Seats in the emergency exit row, which are popular given the extra leg room, will cost more.

"We will continue to offer customers the option to pre-allocate their seats for free in the 24 hours prior to departure. However, customers frequently request specific seats further in advance. This will allow them to do that," said a BA spokesman.

The carrier's decision to introduce such charges mirrors budget carrier Ryanair Holdings PLC's "priority boarding," which charges passengers extra to board the plane first and have first choice of the seats.
