Flybe Bans Passengers Bringing Food Onboard!

I was reading Flybe's inflight magazine and it categorically says "The only alcohol, snacks and beverages allowed to be consumed onboard are those served by our cabin crew" Since when???? Has anyone been on one of their flights and told not to eat or drink their own food?? Can they do this?

Seems perfectly reasonable to me. Would you expect to go into any other establishment that sells food and get your own out? Of course not, this is a fuss over nothing.

Well, if true that's one more airline I will never fly. I will fly an airline to get from a to b. Not for the food. I will not be told what I can eat or drink on board. For alcohol i can imagine a ban, but if i want a drink of water, i refuse to be forced to buy overexpensive water on board.

Indeed.

As is a lot of stuff, unfortunately.

It is one thing banning it, but quite another implementing it.

If I were to fly BE and desired to consume my own refreshments onboard, I would take them aboard and try my luck - although discreetly.

Flew FlyBe BHX-SNN on June 19 on what was the hottest and stormiest day of the year. I had a half finished small plastic bottle of Coke which I'd bought whilst waiting for the flight which I carried on in my hand. My wife had another full bottle in her hand baggage.

I finished my Coke before we left the gate, we shared the other in flight in full view of the crew without anything being said or any dirty looks.

As an aircraft is a means of transportation and not a flying cafe or restaurant, they have little going for them in trying to impose a restriction. Food is sold on trains and long distance buses but the operators don't restrict the consumption of carry on food so FlyBe have no precedent in practice and, I'm pretty sure, in law to rely on.

What they have a right to do is to prohibit ALL consumption of food and beverages - but that would work against them.

They can also restrict the use of alcohol, glass bottles, glass containers and anything else which would infringe any safety and security rules.

Mmm IMO, there is an important difference. In a restaurant, their primary business is to sell you food and drinks. The primary business for FlyBE or any other airline is to offer you transportation from A to B. Offering food and drinks on board is a service and a source of income, but not the primary one. (or at least, it should not be).

When comparing with a restaurant, it would be like when you go to a restaurant with children and you need an extra pillow for the seats, that you could not use your own but only one you buy at the restaurant.

I flew LPL-GLA recently on flyBE and had no problem bringing a bottle of coke with me and some chocolate and eating on the plane. Many other people bought bottles of water/pop with them. The FA's didn't say a word.

I did notice the statement in the inflight magazine, but as Pe@rson says, if you are discreet, I doubt you will get bothered.

Hi!

That's a completely non-sense.... typical from old fashioned type of flying that has nothing to do to our days travelling. I think FlyBE should LEARN with America West..... those guys are far ahead in that type of busniess than FlyBE. In November 2003 I flew America West from FAT to YYZ via PHX and they EVEN invited us to buy anything we wanted and consume in their planes! I think that's what I call the right way to do business...... they'll come buy and ask if we wanted some more soda's. In the end they took the box were I had my pizza and I thank them for beeing kind!
Now you can ask me, should I fly with them again in the future? Yes, certainly I will, that's the type of airline I like in short to medium haul business!!!

Funny. I have some ideas for them. How about

- having the FAs selling newspapers and books at thrice the suggested retail price and forbidding the pax to read their own.

- installing IFE, charging 10 quid for it and forbidding passengers to use their MP3 players.

- lowering the cabin temperature to 10� C, offering blankets for rent and forbidding the passengers to put on their own jackets or sweaters.


It is perfectly acceptable if they forbid BYO alcohol, but the rest is quite absurd. Imagine a long-haul carrier would charge for drinks and forbid that you bring your own water on a 14hr flight.....

Perhaps passengers would be less likely to take their own food on-board if the LCCs offered something dcent to purchase. A limited supply of half frozen sandwichs and watery cup-a-soups, no wonder they take their own!

Well it is different because people:

Go to a restaurant to purchase a meal that the restaurant provide. Thus making it inappropriate to take your own food.

However, people don't book a flight to purchase food, they book a flight to get to their destination. Thus, banning people from bringing their own food and drink onboard is ridiculous in my opinion. Especially on an airline that claims to be a "Low cost" airline.

When they are very strict in this, I would imagine they would include it in their terms & conditions of carriage. However, nothing is mentioned here ( http://www3.flybe.com/terms )

It clearly states it is forbidden to bring your own alcohol on board (articles 11 and 17), in the sense that it endangers safety:

Quote:

If, in our reasonable opinion, you conduct yourself aboard the aircraft so as to endanger the aircraft or any person or property on board, or obstruct the crew in the performance of their duties, or fail to comply with any instructions of the crew including but not limited to those with respect to smoking, alcohol or drug consumption, or behave in a manner which causes discomfort, inconvenience, damage or injury to other passengers or the crew, we may take such measures as we deem reasonably necessary to prevent continuation of such conduct, including restraint.

And however it states that it is not a limited list, I don't see any reason to ban food here.

Well, okay, if you are burping after finishing your coke or not closing your mouth when eating, it may cause inconvenience to other passengers.

Quote:

You may be disembarked and refused onward carriage at any point, and may be prosecuted for offences committed on board the aircraft.

I don't think anyone has ever been denied boarding just for burping yet?  Smile

Kind of silly really, if you ask me. How would an airline be able to impose something like this. Would they try to take the food away from you? Could they have some legal issues with that?

Not reasonable at all... The airline's primary business is not selling food and when they only sell junk its unreasonable for them to expect everyone to either buy that junk or go without - remember FlyBe do have some longer than one hour sectors.

What would you say to a restaurant that said "only customers arriving in taxis provided by us will be allowed into the restaurant"? Indeed!

I think they will have great difficulty enforcing this. The only way they will know if you have food to consume on board will be when you open it up in flight.

And then what? Is the F/A going to tell the Captain to land immediately and evict you? Or maybe force you to hand over your food and drink? I think not.

When I went to AMS recently, with Easyjet, I took a Boots sarnie and pasta along with a litre of water. No-one there told me not to eat it. Lets face it, regular travellers are not going to buy food at the rates Flybe and others expect you to pay.

If airlines are going to cut back on services they have to expect customers to provide their own victuals. Demanding they buy from the on-board trolley is total bollocks.
