As every meal or snack is sold aboard LCCs,i wonder how the service is made ?

Do passengers have a "menu" and then call F/A to order ? Don't this make a certain disorder on board ?

How LCCs make benefits ?

FR has a partial menu on the back of its headrests. Its full menu is printed in its onboard magazine, which is obtainable by saying 'yes' when the crew walk by asking you if you want one. Menus are also printed in U2's onboard mag.

Would passengers be interested in flying Europe-North Africa-MiddleEast with LCCs ?
What routes would be the best in terms of demand,frequency of connections,and seat occupancy ?
What aircraft type would suit these routes ? A320 family or B737NG ?

LCCs in Europe only fly sectors of 20 minutes to about 2 to 3 hours. The typical European LCC like Ryanair, FlyBe, easyJet and Germanwings only have cold and hot drinks and cold snacks like chocolate bars, sandwiches and prepacked pastries and cookies on board. No need to pre order, they just pass the cabin with a cart containing all choices. On short flights and/or with turbulence they don't do service or only halfway the aisle, or they don't have the sandwiches and pastries, only the non perishable snacks and drinks.
It is a small step flying to the more popular Middle East and North African destinations, it won't take a lot of time seeing English LCC's fly to Tenerife, Faro etc. already which is further then Italy or Germany to Beirut or Cairo.
Flights of 4-5 hours you can survive without a hot meal.

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I don't see the need for a meal,a paper ticket,... in a Tunis-Jeddah or Tunis-Casablanca flight for example.The most important thing is to fly,arrive safe and on time.

If a LCC starts operating out of Tunis,what Arab and European destinations would be successful ?

ATA is offering meals for sale on PHX, LAS and west coast flights from Indy, MDW and LGA. The salads and turkey wraps are great. The snack pack is full of candy bars and chips. For $5, it is a better deal than most airport restaurants. All the choices are in a cart and pass through the cabin right before the first service. ATA does not charge for the regular snacks/drinks except of alcohol of course.

It is still in its trial period, but it is very successful and most the of the customers appreciate the service. The hardest part is catering the appropriate number of meals. I hope it will be that the meals will be pre-ordered through reservations/web-booking, but so far it is not the case.

I would expect to see the meals go onto all the longer flights. Right now all the west coast destinations including PHX, LAS are seeing the buy on board program. ATA also has meals on the west coast to Hawaii flights. Those meals are free however. I don't think you will be able to select your meal before hand (like when you are buying your ticket). The program is still in a trial period and so far it has recieved great reviews from our passengers.

Also ATA will be following Spirit and AirTran and be adding a business class starting this August. Seats will have a 39" seat pitch as well as PVTs. Fares for the business class will be capped at $399. $100 more than the coach fares of $299.
