British Airways is no longer serving complimentary food menu on short-haul flights, instead the airline will sell Marks & Spencer meals.

According to The Guardian report, if economy class passengers want to have mid-air meals, they will soon have to buy the snacks supplied by Marks & Spencer.

Meanwhile, business class passengers will retain complimentary food service.

British Airways has signed a deal with Marks & Spencer to offer a selection of its products, reported by Express.co.uk.

"We know our customers expect a great experience with British Airways.They've told us we are experts in flying and service, but when it comes to catering on short-haul flights, they want to choose from a wider range of premium products," said BA chief, Alex Cruz to Mirror.co.uk. 

"Like British Airways, Marks and Spencer is a well-known, premium British brand that is respected and trusted, so it's an ideal partnership, providing our customers with a choice of products they recognise and value," he added.

Express.co.uk listed the example of food that British Airways and Marks & Spencer will be offering economy class passengers.
