    Full service carrier Jet Airways has eliminated complimentary meals option for passengers, who choose to fly in 'economy light' and 'economy deal' within India after September 25.
    Flyers, however, can buy their meals on-board from the airline's menu. The customers will be served beverages - including tea and coffee - for free, Jet Airways said in a statement.
    Till date, the meal bill was included in the ticket fare for all the flyers, making the meals complimentary during the flight.
    But following the exclusion of free meal from September 25, the air tickets for the two categories - 'economy light' and 'economy deal' will be cheaper than the other categories.

    The flight+meal option for domestic flights will remain for 'economy saver', 'economy classic' and 'economy flex' and for all fare options in Premiere. On international flights, all features and benefits under First Class, Première and Economy remain unchanged.

    Below are the details of the revised 'fare choice' given by the airline:
