(ECNS) - Tianjin Airlines will no longer provide free food in economy class for domestic flights starting from Oct. 28 amid a slew of changes to customize the in-flight service.


Passengers can order meals through the airline’s official website, on China's most popular messenger app WeChat or on board.


The new measures also include adjustment to baggage services, abolishing free checked baggage for passengers who bought tickets at more than a 40 percent discount. Passengers who bought tickets for less than a 40 percent discount can have free checked baggage ranging in weight from 10 to 30 kilograms.


A manager of Tianjin Airlines said that the differentiated products with separate pricing and free choices are a breakthrough in the traditional pricing model and allow passengers to enjoy flexible services.

Customized service is an innovation -- we'll just have to wait and see.

I am not so fastidious about food -- especially a meal or two served in an airplane.

The first priority as I see it is safety, safety and safety.

Precise and frequent security monitoring is essential.

Everything else is secondary.

Airline food is nothing to crow about; they can take it back, but do give a discount for that!

Silly nonsense, build the price into the ticket price, and pretend the food is free as always.
