Well, that de-escalated quickly! About 9 months ago, Jet Airways launched a tie-up where they partnered with Subway and Krispy Kreme, and on flights less than 90-minutes, they were going to serve donuts and sandwiches instead of meals from their own catering contracts with Airport kitchens. Looking at them, even Vistara tied up with Starbucks for premium coffee on board.
However, it turns out the contract did not last for long and was quietly buried. Over the past few weeks, I’ve had a few opportunities to fly short-haul (less than 90 minutes) from both Mumbai and New Delhi on Jet Airways, and I never ever received one of these meals. All I got was their regular shorthaul meals which is essentially a cold sandwich in baguette bread.
I thought it would be wise to check with Jet Airways, who confirmed today that those meals are gone for good!
@LiveFromALounge Yes, we have, Ajay.

I never even got one! Did you get any of those promised more-delightful in-flight carbs than 9Ws own catering?
