Feb 28 (newsin.asia) – A few airlines, including Delta and Japan Airlines, are giving passengers the option to skip meal service.
The “skip meal” option is only available to some passengers flying in Delta’s business class Delta One cabin.
While airlines claim the option is about being eco-friendly, it’s also about personalisation, with meals representing an opportunity for airlines to gather more customer data and potentially better optimise catering options.
Critics of meal-skipping programmes say that airlines might be “greenwashing” by trying to hide a corner-cutting measure under the veneer of sustainability.
Some suggest that food waste could be reduced by being transparent about food waste and educating travellers, with skipping meals on board becoming an environmental statement rather than just a personal preference.
