Remember, Good old days in Jet Airways where if you flew JetLite, you had to order your own meal while If you flew Jet Airways, you got complimentary meals.
People preferred flying Jet Airways as it afforded them getting free meals. Then slowly over time, quality of Jet Airways meal dropped to pathetic. They were offering the same tired old Wrap to everyone.
Recently, the meals quality have improved a little but still, a lot has left to be desired. What if I feel more hungry on connecting flight. Those rolls don’t suffice me. Flying for 5 hours to 7 hours on 2 rolls didn’t fill me up for sure.
Jet Airways recently decided to cut meals for DEAL tickets.
How does it look in practice? How are the flight attendants catering the meals? Well they are first providing all the people who ordered special meals – they get the meals first.
During the rotation, they ask the people with DEAL tickets – as what they would like to order from the menu. In another flight, it was while they were serving regular meals – they asked people DEAL tickets if they would like to have something.
For some reason, the menu looks better than what I am entitled from the higher fare ticket. You can find the menu here. However, availability and practicality is a huge issue. Mostly, it is very underperforming. Also on a short flight (Flight duration less than 1 hour), you literally get the meal like 5 to 10 mins before landing and feels little forced eating as you have to finish your meal in very hurried pace.
