British Airways is making some changes, and some customers might not be too happy about it

Critics have claimed that British Airways is becoming a “budget airline.”

British Airways is taking its services in a new direction and is making some sacrifices along the way. The airline cut back on complimentary food on short-haul flights in January and has recently announced that it might make the same move for long-haul travelers.

According to Alex Cruz, the chairman and CEO of British Airways, economy class customers are starting to accept the change — which replaced complimentary meals with a range of selections from retailer Marks & Spencer available at an optional charge — after a “rough start,” The Sunday Times reported.

“It’s going great,” Cruz explained. “Customers say to us: ‘Finally, I have good choices. No more chicken or beef.’” When asked about extending the offering to long-haul flyers, he told The Sunday Times, “We might do it.”

The airline also plans on adding more seats to one of its long-haul Boeing 777 jets from Heathrow, limiting leg room even further than some budget airlines; however, Cruz says that the addition of more seats could in turn lower fares.

Although economy flyers can expect some cost-cutting measures when flying with British Airways, Cruz says that he’s investing more money into the airline’s Club World business class. Changes will include a Club seat that converts into a bed, improvements in food and wine, faster Wi-Fi, and easier booking.

Qantas inflight meals

There is free food on all Domestic and International Qantas and Qantaslink flights, even on the small Dash 8 planes with small outback hops.

Plastic knives & forks are used on all flights, except for international flights where a decent metal set is offered, even in economy.

Domestically there are four types of meals. Breakfast is served up to 8.30am (9.30am on longer flights). Lunch between 12.00noon and 1.30pm, and Dinner between 6.00pm and 8.30pm - which is amazingly late, consequently in the evening, it's best to eat at the airport unless your flight leaves after 6pm. At all other times a snack is offered.

On flights up to 2.5 hours, breakfast, lunch and dinner are served on half trays, lined with newly designed tray mats and cutlery. Snacks are served in a reusable cardboard box. Very small routes in the Dash 8s get a see-through plastic carton.

On flights longer than 2.5 hours, a full tray service is offered with hot meals. There are special meals on flights from & to Perth and the East Coast, with a choice of two types of hot food. In business on the cross-continental routes there is a three course meal at lunch and dinner times, and a full menu.

All International flights get a tray in economy, and normally a menu with the food options. In business there is a table cloth, and pretty brisk service, particularly on shorter night flight. In First, you can dine when you choose, although most people want to just after takeoff.
