No more meat on airplanes since COVID?

Ever since COVID I've not had a single meal on airlines that contained any meat.

Did a flight in July and now in December to Europe and every single flight, including the transatlantic and Euro zone.

Was COVID another reason to set a precedent? I don't know about you but with no meat those tiny dinner and lunch boxes barely keep you filled.

Is business class any better? Do they still use silverware and actual meals?

Probably a cost saving measure . Maybe a supply chain problem . With all the lock downs it's possible the meal makers may not be able to get supplies . Could also be a labor issue . Probably takes extra care to safely make meals with meat . With all the money available to stay home . Meal makers may not have the staff to make the meals safely . Welcome to the new normal .

Since August I flew 4 long-haul business class flights with United and Qatar and both had meat on the menu, from fish to steak. And silverware too.

I had ham and cheese.

BTW, shouldn’t the subject line have a question mark? It is misleading to state, “No more meat on airplanes since covid”.
