Airline meals have always had a bad reputation, and now one major airline is looking to eliminate some meals altogether. British Airways announced this week that they’ll be phasing out some flights' meals and swapping them for “fun-sized” candy bars.
According to USA Today, passengers flying in economy seats across the pond have traditionally received a second in-flight meal shortly before arrival at their destination—typically consisting of a sandwich and snack. Now, those taking flights under 7 hours to the United States and Canada will receive a bite-sized candy bar in the sandwich’s place.

Though passengers on trans-Atlantic British Airways flights will still get a full meal at the beginning of their flight, many passengers see this cost-cutting measure as stingy given the price they pay for the long-distance ticket. “I know airline food is never usually anything to rave about, but I do think it’s insulting to be served a fun size chocolate bar after paying so much for a seat,” one passenger tells The Sun.
