Qantas will serve vegetarian meals on domestic flights again.

Qantas reduced its meal offerings on domestic flights under 3.5 hours at the beginning of the Pandemic in 2020 and only provided a single option on some flights.

On Friday, the airline reversed its decision and began serving vegetarian meals on domestic flights.

Chicken and leek pies would be offered by the airline.

High levels of waste halted fresh fruit from being offered on board.

The executive manager of product and service at Qantas said the airline had heard the message about vegetarian options.

During Covid, we had to make a lot of alterations to our service and we are still updating others.

New vegetarian options will be added to the domestic network from October.

John Dee, the co- founder and managing director of the nonprofit Do Something, who had led the charge for the airline to offer vegetarian meals again, said it was good to see Qantas respond so quickly.

It is good to see that Qantas is bringing back food services.

This was a decision that should never have been made, as it discriminated against Australians who needed special meals.

After being told by cabin crew that the menu was only for one size fits all, Dee and other irate travellers went for a meal that only contained meat.

Dee said it was pleasing to see so many people agree that it made no sense.
