Hey All

I have just booked a flight from MAD to BHX (BA1793) in Economy for September.

When I checked the BA website with the manage by booking tool, the details said "Drinks and Snacks availble for purchase" under the service details section.

I was wondering if on European routes, if BA are now charging Economy passengers for food and drink? Can anybody confirm this?

Thanks as always

Mark

You will be flying on City Express. They charge for food, which I have heard is quite good, and drink. Have a good flight and check out the BA website for more info.

It's actually BA Connect - Citiexpress was loss-making, so BA changed its name and made it a low-cost carrier with buy-on-board food and drink.

No you won't! BA CitiExpress (all one word with no 'y') is no more.

Hilarious how they - and others - think that by changing the image and rationalising here-and-there they'll become a true low-cost airline with properly low costs and thus profitable.

Disagree there as I state above, on BA and the site where I booked the trip it states quite clearly that it is BA Citiexpres

See above

Thanks to all for the comments and feedback. I am really suprised to be honest that BA are charging for food now on these flights. I took that very same flight last year and was given complimentary drinks and snacks the whole flight.... how times change!!

Thanks again guys to you all

Actually, they are correct, Citiexpress was discontinued earlier this year and it is now BA Connect, which operates a different business model.

Citiexpress as a company are no more. They have been renamed BA Connect, and thus there is no way your flight will be operated by Citiexpress.
