In what could be a trend setter Lufthansa is set to charge passengers in long-haul Economy and Premium Economy cabins for snacks and spirits from 1 December.
Passengers in these cabins already receive a main meal and drinks free-of-charge, but will soon be given the option of purchasing additional snacks and spirits as part of the carrier’s Onboard Delights menu.
The service will initially be rolled out across long-haul routes to North America, South America, Asia and South Africa shortly and to all intercontinental flights in spring 2022. It can only be ordered on board and booking in advance is not possible.
Earlier this year the airline launched a buy-on-board service for Economy class passengers on short- and medium-haul flights:
The menu includes items such as Baumkuchen from Dallmayr (€7), kettle chips made from organic potatoes (€3), and the Share organic nut bar (€3.50). The drinks menu includes Champagne Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée (€15 for 200ml), Mionetto il Spriz (€6 for 200ml) and a variety of spirits including Baileys Irish Cream, Bombay Sapphire Gin and Grey Goose Vodka (€6-7 for 50ml).
