COMMENT: Good Food or Bad
Over the last few weeks ABTN has received a number of serious complaints regarding the on-board catering with some of the budget airlines. It is an interesting topic which we would like to take further. Very simply, if you or a colleague are travelling on an airline that charges for sandwiches and drink could you please tell us if the package is date stamped ” the inference being that old stale food is never taken off the aircraft but is kept on board until it is sold ” how much you paid for a egg sandwich, and the price charged for a for a Gin and Tonic. As a way of comparison Virgin Trains comes in with ”1.90 for fine egg & mayonnaise sandwich and ”3.60 the drink. We stand by our previous comment that Boots, airside and landside, typically at Birmingham, offers the best and freshest sandwiches at any of the major airports starting with the egg and cress at ”1.10. You will save money buying on the ground and taking with you to the aircraft (although having read this article that will now probably be banned by the airlines on security grounds).
