Chicken or Beef? – One of those is going away…


If you’re flying on British Airways in the future the “chicken or beef?” question from the flight attendants is changing. Apparently BA is so concerned about offending their Hindu passengers – the second largest long-haul market for the carrier is India – that they’re switching to “chicken or fish?” in the economy cabin for their flights. Suffice it to say, the English Beef and Lamb Executive is pretty pissed about this one. A BA spokesman claims they’re doing it only partly because of the religious reasons, but also because people like the taste better. Hard to believe that people can tell the difference in meals in economy, actually.

Just be careful with the fish….you never know if Captain Oveur is going to get sick during the flight.
