TUI is one of the UK’s most popular holiday companies and many British passengers are expected to fly with the airline this year. However, passengers have been advised to bring their own food.
TUI’s statement said: “We can confirm that unfortunately due to staff shortages with our catering supplier, there may be limited food and drinks services available onboard TUI Airways short and mid-haul flights over the coming days.
“Customers may therefore want to bring their own food and soft drinks onboard (no alcohol permitted.
“Any soft drinks over 100ml will need to be purchased after you have passed through security.
“Please note this disruption does not affect any long-haul flights to Aruba, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, Orlando and St Lucia and meal services on these flights will continue to operate as normal.

Long-haul passengers should not be affected by the issues and will not need to bring their own food.
