I flew PER-BNE-PER this weekend and discovered that QF appears to have removed the humble bread roll from the inflight meal in Y.
I noticed some extra space on the tray on the outbound sector and discovered that my tray (and the others around me) was missing the standard bread roll. Believing that PER catering had just run out of bread rolls, I did not think any more of it.
On the inbound sector, the bread roll was also missing. Upon inquiring with the FA, she confirmed that the bread roll had been removed from the inflight meal on the last couple of flights she had operated.
Is this another enhancement by QF or just a one (or two) off occurrence? Has the bread roll gone the same way as the mysterious 'third' cracker? I know the bread roll was not the most gourmet thing you would ever get to eat but helped to keep hunger at bay if you did not get a chance to have something to eat before the flight.
RIP Bread Roll.....
