No more beef in cattle class

British Airways ditches beef in meals - Times Online

British Airways has ditched beef for economy class passengers this summer in an attempt to appeal to a more international passenger base.

A spokesman for the airline told The Times: “We were looking for something with broad appeal. Research trends have shown us that fish pie is very popular in supermarkets so we decided to go with that and chicken and tarragon for the summer.

“We can only serve two options and beef and pork obviously have religious restrictions,” the spokesman added. BA's second-biggest long-haul market, after transatlantic routes, is to India.

But note that business and first class passengers will still be offered beef, why that is almost discriminatory....

Last time I had the beef on a BA flight I snapped my plastic cutlery trying to cut it. I'd have been better off chewing one of my boots.

"note that business and first class passengers will still be offered beef"

Looks like I'm alright Jack
