BA passengers were told about a food and drinks price rise — mid-flight at 30,000ft[/caption]

He told them to ignore prices published on the in-seat menu cards — as they had been increased that day.

And passengers were informed card payment readers had already been adjusted to charge the higher rates.

One traveller among those on board the Athens-to-Heathrow flight on Thursday, said: “We were all shocked. Why did they suddenly put the prices up without warning anyone?

“They’ve sneakily introduced this without making an official announcement.

“It just feels like they want to rip us off.”

The increases — said to be about ten per cent — covered sandwiches by celebrity chef Tom Kerridge, breakfast bacon rolls, cream tea with scones as well as all beer, spirits, soft drinks, tea and coffee.

Passengers in economy on BA European flights no longer get free food or alcohol but just a bottle of water.

Anything else, including a cuppa, from BA’s High Life Cafe menu has to be paid for.

Prices are already steep — a ham and cheese sandwich costs £5.50, with a gin and tonic at £8.

A 90g pack of Naked Japanese Style Chicken Flavour Noodles, which cost just £1.50 at Sainsbury’s, is £5 on a BA flight.

Last night the airline said: “We’ve made some very small alterations to prices of snacks and drinks on our short-haul flights.

“These were scheduled changes and all on-board menus are in the process of being updated.”
