A great example of pre orders is Jet2 who do a huge range but none of it is sold on board, it must be pre ordered. Their standard on board menu is the usual sandwiches, wraps and a few hot meals. With that said, Jet2 is primarily a holiday airline, people going on holiday are far more likely to splash out on pre orders than your average Aer Lingus passenger.
Something needs to be done. I have been saying that EI needs a Jet2 model for years obviously adapted to the EI model which a lot is actually holiday travel . ACE AGP ATH BOJ CFU DBV FAO FUE LPA TFS just to mention a few. The pre order should be a priority on longer routes and I am sure it would not cause too much of an issue to re introduce hot breakfast on shorter routes. Its not as if they need an exhaustive menu. Jet 2 are rated 3* and Aer Lingus 4* but on catering options for shorthaul the stars should be swapped. Not that these ratings mean that much these days.

Cork to Edinburgh flight is struck by lightning
A flight from Cork to Edinburgh had to be diverted to Dublin twice this morning.
The Aer Lingus flight, operated by Stobart Air, departed Cork at 6.40am today bound for the Scottish capital.
However, it was diverted to Dublin Airport due to a technical difficulty not long after taking off, and landed at 8.25am.
The issue was resolved and the flight took off again just over an hour later at 9.35am.
However, the plane was subsequently struck by lightning and had to return to Dublin Airport for a second time, where it landed at 10.25am.www.echolive.ie/corknews/Cork-to-Edinbu ... 022c8aa-ds
