Jet Airways to discontinue free meals in economy class

New Delhi: Beleaguered carrier Jet Airways will stop serving in-flight free meals to flyers who opt to travel under its ‘economy light’ and ‘economy deal’ options from Tuesday (September 25) in an attempt to introduce competitive low fares.

Currently, flyers on-board Jet Airways flights get complimentary meals irrespective of class or fare. Passengers can, however, buy meals on board from the airline's menu. Earlier, Vistara launched a similar low category of economy fares, in addition to the regular ones.

“Currently fare choices in economy offers a total of five fare options — light, deal, saver, classic and flex. Jet has now unbundled fares in light and deal categories of fare choices in the economy for flights within India … as guests want the flexibility of enjoying competitive fares with the options to buy meals,” the airline had said in a statement.
