Food fight: Greggs set to battle Waitrose as BA axes M&S

BRITISH Airways axes its deal with M&S to provide its in-flight meals and now Greggs is set to battle Waitrose to win the contract: the food fight is on!

Greggs and Waitrose will battle it out to see who will be next to provide BA with a selection of salads, sandwiches, and snacks after sources dismissed rumours of the airline returning to free meals on short-haul flights, which they stopped in 2016 when their deal with M&S was announced.

Yesterday BA said: “We’re off on a new flight path.

“We look forward to announcing our exciting new buy-on-board proposition with a great British brand that customers have told us they love.”

A spokesman for M&S highlighted their appreciation for their time working with BA: “We are proud to have been a supplier to BA’s short-haul food service since 2017.

“Our partnership was always due to end this year and we have agreed not to renew. M&S Food continues to focus on developing its wider franchise partnerships.”
