British Airways Inflight Food & Drink Menu With Prices Revealed

News : Travel

Next time you travel on British Airways short-haul or euro traveler, you will have to pay for your food and drink. I reveal the cost of a sandwich and a drink below.

Free food and drinks used to differentiate BA from airlines like Easyjet and Ryanair but now that you have to pay for food, the only difference between the airlines is the BA staff and pilots – unless you book Club Europe. You can also read our article about the BA Club Europe afternoon tea & Club World food menu.

The “Buy On Board” offering below is sparse, to say the least although you can pay using Avios. Or you can veto this altogether and buy something better at the airport. The “Buy On Board” menu launches next Wednesday.

Free food seems an inevitable loss when traveling in economy on short-haul flights, as each airline tries to further reduce their headline flight fares to beat the competition. I have already written about my disappointment in the current food offering in euro traveler with just a snack and a drink. The fact that British Airways will now charge for food will further encourage me to spend my Avios on Club Europe seats to enjoy priority luggage, more spacious seating and a nice salad or the BA afternoon tea. The lack of food in Euro Traveller makes it more worthwhile spending your Avios on upgrading to Club Europe. Of course, you could instead fly Ryanair or Easyjet who have similarly sparse offerings.
