Without a doubt, the tourism and travel sector has been one of the most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In a context where physical distancing rewards the numbers of the world's airlines have plummeted and they have had to manage to continue operating.

In this way, Lufthansa , a German airline, will no longer provide free snacks to its economy class passengers. The company's goal is to reduce expenses. However, the airline will offer a new range of food and beverages to its short and medium-haul users, which will have an extra cost.
