British Airways will scrap all meals except breakfast on its short-flights. Passengers on flights after 10am will no longer have the option to have food but they will still be able to buy drinks and snacks. Those flying before 10am will still be served breakfast. The Measure will start next week and is likely to save as much as £22m a year. The airline is also considering other cost cutting measures such as removing chocolates and Jacobs crackers from first class passengers, taking away hot towels from those in Club class and axing complimentary gas of pretzels in economy.

The postal strikes in London are continuing after 12,000 workers walked out in a dispute over pay and job cuts. The latest round of strikes began on Saturday and will end on Tuesday and is the second strike this month. During the strikes PC2Paper will be sending mail as normal, however, customers should expect delays and are advised to allow extra time for mail to arrive.

More than 12,000 postal workers are to walk out on Friday in action to protest against cuts at Royal Mail. The action is the latest in a series of strikes and threatens the worst destruction to deliveries in years according to this article. The Communication Workers Union has said that more than 12,000 of its members will walk out for 24 hours. The action is expected to affect deliveries in many areas including London, Edinburgh, Bristol and Plymouth although other areas may also be affected. During this time PC2Paper will still process and post mail as usual but customers should be aware that letters are likely to take longer to arrive than usual.

PC2Paper are currently relocating our UK office. We regret that during this busy time it has been necessary to remove the Recorded Delivery, Special Delivery and International Signed For options. All our services are still available as usual. We hope to have completed our office move by Monday the 21st of July and expect all services to be running normally again at this time. All mail sent from our other printing stations during this period will be unaffected.
