I just saw an article in The Independent that states
British Airways has scrapped the long-established option for economy passengers to ask for free snacks between meals on intercontinental flights.… Previously, peckish passengers were able to ask staff in the galley for items such as crisps or chocolate. The “raid the larder” arrangement still exists in Club World, but economy travellers must now either bring food on board or buy items such as Pringles (£1.80) or Maltesers (£3.20).
I didn't know that you could go to the galley and ask for snacks. Does anybody know what sorts of snacks can one ask for— fruits or is it limited to only confectionery only? Also is there a protocol/rule that is and should be followed while requesting some? This is specifically for long-haul flights (in excess of +6 hour flights).
