bmi Knows What You Want This Summer: Free Cake!

August 2, 2011 at 11:00 AM | by | ()

Even though you might not have British Midland International—or bmi to its friends—flying you anywhere soon, it’s still pretty exciting to hear about an airline adding food and beverage options instead of taking them away.

The airline—they are British after all—plans to introduce free cake to all economy passengers traveling within the UK and Ireland for both elevenses and afternoon tea. The choices will include some pretty decent offerings including victoria sponge, carrot cake, and lemon drizzle—we already are interested if we can request seconds. These treats will be for those flying in Flexible Economy and will be offered between 10am and 12pm and then again between 1:30pm and 5pm.

If you’re flying outside of those times you might not get cake, but you will get something else as the airline is bringing hot food options to everyone. Warm and toasty—our adjectives not theirs—breakfast wraps will be offered on flights before 10am with other wraps and sandwiches being offered throughout the day. These meals are complimentary for all economy class passengers, and apparently that makes bmi the only airline to do this for all scheduled European flights.

Don’t worry about drinks either, as they’re not trying to trick you with free food but costly drinks. Hot and cold beverages will still be complimentary, so be sure to order up some tea with that cake.

Obviously price is always a factor when it comes to airfare, but the cake quotient is now something we really need to consider before booking our next trip—cheers!
