Euro traveller catering

Okay, this will be a bit of a short thread, but hopefully useful to keep track of changes in the 'catering' down the back.

Today's (7 Jan 2024) OSL-LHR (Band 2) saw a positive enhancement - the 15g of pretzels had been replaced with a full-size (despite the photo) Foxes Rocky chocolate biscuit, or a graze savory snack.

£1.25 for a pack of 7 in Tesco (cheapskates). I used to buy them until mid last year when they were £1 for 8. Damned shrinkflation.

Pretty recent change as January 3rd was still microscopic bag of pretzels. Not sure which microscopic snack would be preferable. To be honest, just stop at the water....

Maybe I'm being naive, but surely the re-introduction of complimentary tea and coffee in Euro Traveller cabins would be a quick and relatively cheap win for BA.
Perhaps even with a small packet of biscuits?

Can you imagine the uproar on here if they did that?!

That looks alarmingly like a real enhancement rather than the usual version from BA.

I really hope they don’t try and do coffee - it invariably tastes meh on board. Tea drinkers shouldn’t be allowed on a plane 😉 (other opinions are available, but they are wrong).

I guess the point of anything is better than nothing kicks in. But to be honest the pretzel bag is so small it is just a joke. Why not just get rid of it?

Get coffee and cake with KLM look forward to it.

I am not fussy but never touch the water and cereal bar. Feel ungrateful when don’t take them.

I know, but they could also get rid of the other ones. Had a weird cereal bar for breakkie, that was literally awful.

If you think BA tea is meh, you have been spared AA or UA tea.

On my WAW-LHR (Unsure what band it is!) flight on the 4th of Jan (before the new catering came in), I received a Corn snack which I haven't seen before on BA. Anyone else had this?
This was also a flight operated by Finnair.
