(Delta, 12.99, cert 15) PAUL JOSEPH British AirwAys is to stop serving free food on thousands of short-haul flights in a bid to cut costs. Passengers on flights lasting less than two and a half hours will no longer be served free meals, rolls or sandwiches at lunch or dinner. it is also claimed that bottles of water will be replaced by water cuplets and that the airline will no longer serve pretzels, copying no-frills airlines ryanair and easyJet. BA claims the cost cuts will save it 22m a year and cut down on waste. A spokeswoman said customers would still get breakfast and some free snacks and drinks. she said: when you fly with BA the in- flight catering is top- class and it is free. it is not unusual to make small changes to avoid waste and save money.

Steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal is looking for tenants for his Summer Palace on The Bishops Avenue, in Hampstead, north London. With 11 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and six reception rooms, a glass lift to a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and steam room, the property has failed to attract an offer close to the esti- mated 40m it was worth before the credit crunch hit. Mr Mittal bought the house, which is set in an acre of land, in 1996 for 6.75m. A source said: Mr Mittal has put a lot into the property and doesnt want a cheap sale. Hes in no hurry to sell. In 2004, Mr Mittal and his family relocated to Kensington, west London, buying Formula 1 tycoon Bernie Ecclestones 15-bedroom home for a record 57m. Trevor Abrahmsohn, of Glentree Estates, estimates that Summer Palace could yield 10,000 a week in rent. He said: Post credit-crunch rents are down 20 per cent but a long-term tenant could be willing to pay up to 10,000 a week. In recent years, however, a number of multimillion-pound proper- ties on The Bishops Avenue have been left in disrepair, with squatters moving in. Developers such as Barratt Homes have also angered some well-heeled residents by building flats on the road.
