Why would you starve?

Its only a 2.5 hour flight. I am sure you can manage.

Eat before the flight, and you will be fine.

A seat?  Wink

Seriously though, 2.5 is fairly short, just have a nice meal in the airport before departing and you will be all set.

If your really that hungry you can buy food on ryanair.

Enjoy the flight. Ive never experienced ultra low cost flights but I soon will in summer.

Personally I would buy some food at the Pret A Manger at Stansted to bring with you on the flight as the food there is far superior to what is sold on-board. It isn't that much more expensive either.

Nevertheless Ryanair do have quite an extensive range of food for sale on-board and their is normally quite a few takers for it. Here is the menu.

A bit pricey at €5, but the hot ham and cheese sandwich available aboard FR is actually very good.

Agreed.

Obviously it's a revenue source, but how do FR justify charging the prices on the menucard?

Around twice the price of the highstreet...

Certainly not a low cost airline  Wink

Be smart. Figure out how many F/A's are aboard. Purchase the equivalent number of M&M Peanuts regular size. Board the aircraft, deliver one package of M&M's to each flight attendant prior to taking your seat. Tell the F/A "I appreciate that you are here for our safety, thank you" and move on immediately to the next flight attendant.

I've done this for 30 years. I never pay for food, never pay for mixed drinks and when the F/A's serve me a mixed beverage in the Emergency Exit row prior to pushback and everyone looks and someone asks "who are you?" I always tell them I own a bit of stock in this airline and apparently my ticket indicates so.

This is the honest truth, (except I don't own airline stock) you get genuine old fashioned 'first class' treatment in any seat on the aircraft (sans the lav)!!

"Y" Class ticket JFK to LAX $388.00
5 packages of M&M Peanuts $5.30
Free drinks, food, headsets & unlimited attention on the flight. PRICELESS

I started this in respect of the F/A's the response was not intentional but I will tell you it is consistent. Sure, every now and then an F/A will give me a strange look but it doesn't matter. There is at least one F/A in the group that will appreciate hearing a positive word and for whatever reason will just be dying for a piece of chocolate! It is such a minuscule token.

You might also consider bringing a small fold-able carry on cooler just in case to better meet your culinary desires. I never expect too much from the airport concessions.

And whats wrong with a Mc Donalds now and again.

I will note that from what Ive seen, the UK airports have better food than the US ones.

It's not a public service, no justification necessary.

Selling items on board is very labour intensive. Its not a case of magically having stock on board, people have to pack trucks, and restock the one plane several times a day. Depending on routings, a cart can be topped up 6 times in one day. Compare that to a big supermarket that may only do that once a day.

The prices are no more expensive than the airports, and they offer convenience and something different for the pax.

I can tell you I have become ill following dining on airline food more than once. Avoid the poultry.
