Buy on board: Experiences and reactions from BA's shorthaul economy service

From Wednesday 11 January 2017, British Airways introduced a buy on board menu for most shorthaul services in UK and the rest of Europe, replacing food, snacks and refreshments services which had previously been free at the point of service.

This thread is for you to give your experiences, anecdotes and reactions to the implementation of buy on board. Kindly note that the thread referenced in resources below had a lot of commentary in it, and these do not really need to be repeated here, this thread is about real life experiences. However any experiences you have had on the implementation of buy on board, and your reactions, will be most welcome in this thread.

There is a separate thread for information on this development, so if you have a specific query on some factual issue, this is probably the best place to visit:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/briti...-services.html
If you have an opinion about buy on board, the right thread for your contribution is:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/briti...hort-haul.html

Over to you. This thread may need to be adapted as information comes in. Please spare a thought for our volunteer Moderators, who I am sure would be grateful for your help, prudence and commonsense over coming weeks.
