[QF] Has the domestic breakfast been "enhanced"?

I flew QF 504, the 0705 SYD-BNE flight, yesterday. The breakfast served was a prepacked box containing a large tub of yogurt (rhubarb compote for those who care) and a bag of apple slices. This was naturally served with tea and coffee.

This stands in marked contrast to the tray breakfast I received throughout October and November 2013 on similar domestic flights, where a tray was served, upon which were a bowl of muesli, a bottle of milk, a muffin and an orange juice. Apples were served whole and fresh; this all came with tea or coffee.

Is the return to the dark ages of cardboard boxes here to stay, or did I simply cop out?

There quite a few threads in other places as well regarding the downgrading of meals both domestically & intenational over the last month.  My last OOl-SYD Y Class ex OOL 1740 was a diiner flight.  it was very hard to get a cup of Tea. The beef meal was ok My lasy J luch ex OOl the week before was quite good.

I will be interested to see other comments &  will probalby go to BNE now instead of OOL Thursday to check out dinner

This was the same breakfast served on my SYD-MEL sector on 22 December 2013.

Box meals have been a "trial" since mid-December.

Lengthy thread on the AFF forum including pics of a bunch of the meals

Didn't they do something similar with their hot dinners last year around xmas-new year? I remember them removing hot dinners in favour of sandwiches (pretty much the lunch offering) between Mid December and Mid January.

I wonder how the "no tray" meal service is going on International flights. Anyone got any feedback?

Cheers, guys! I'll keep my eyes peeled during my run in late February.

The International flights I've had this week still have trays - QF 51 in Economy had trays for both lunch and snack.

As I'm ex PER I'm not noticing these changes.  Seems very cheap and nasty to me.
