Reasons for trip

UK domestic Economy, and Euro Traveller class passengers, no longer get complimentary food/drink on flights. Instead you have to select from their M&S food brochure – similar to buying on EasyJet/Ryanair. You can pay using ‘major charge, credit or debit cards’ or Avios points. But not Solo, Electron or Maestro debit – nor cash or pre-paid cards.. One of those wee bottles of wine/spirits that were there for the asking will now set u back £4.50. Tea/coffee £2.30. Various sandwiches and snacks available, as is beer and soft drinks.

To pay using Avios youu need to download the BA App or, if Executive Club Bronze or higher, you can pay using your Executive Club card (option not open to basic ‘blue’ level card holders).

Might as well buy a ‘meal deal’ in Boots or WH Smith and take it onboard? I did the Boots option on my first BA flight since this new procedure was introduced. Tried the M&S offering on the return flight – didn’t think their bacon butty was any better than the EasyJet bacon baguette.
