It’s an interesting question. When faced with the choice of food and drink on-board or lower ticket prices, which would you choose? That’s a question that was posed by TripAdvisor to British travelers (as reported by The Mirror). 31% of all passengers said they’d skip the snacks during the flight in exchange for cheaper fares. The Mirror is running its own mini-poll and the responses there are even more heavily skewed towards skipping the grub in favor of a discount.
It may seem odd for someone who runs a blog about food and air travel, but I think I’d go with cheaper tickets, too. After all, I could always bring my own food on the plane (of the non-stinky variety, thank you very much) and would actually save money by escaping those jacked-up prices both in-flight and at the terminal.
What about you? Would you accept a cheaper ticket in exchange for no food and beverage service on-board? Could you skip your ginger ale/tomato juice/coffee/etc. if it meant you got to pay less up-front? Weigh in below in the comment section!
