British Airways Ditching Second Meal for “Fun-Size” Chocolate Bars

by Adam

Beginning last month, transatlantic British Airways passengers are now being provided a “fun-size” chocolate bar instead of a second main meal. BA told CNBC that menus were revised last month for shorter transatlantic flights.

“We offer customers on all of our transatlantic flights a three course meal, bar service and snacks and on our longer transatlantic flights, including to the west coast, customers are offered an extra meal during the flight. We regularly review our catering to ensure we are investing where it matters most to our customers,” the spokesperson added.

What is considered a shorter flight? Like to New York and Boston? I was served two meals on my flight to MIA on BA metal at the end of July.
