Many low-cost airlines are charging extremely high prices for in-flight food and drinks to increase their revenue. For example, on some UK based flights, Ryanair charges a total of about £18.07 (about $29) for a cup of tea, a cup of coffee, a sandwich, a small tin of Pringles, a snack of shortbread and a half-liter water bottle. This is higher than the £18 it charges for many of its flights from UK to east and southern Europe.
Ryanair is not the sole airline with astronomical food & drink prices. Some low-cost airlines such as Ireland-based Aer Lingus are known to charge over 10 times the retail price for bottled water on their flights.
