The article presents the author's comments on the decline in corporate expenses in Great Britain. He says so because British Airways announced that premium traffic has fallen by 20% in the past 12 months. He adds that one hundred restaurants in London, England, are closed due to decline in business lunches. He states that the bosses are putting blanket travel bans on their employees and the lunch invites that journalists used to enjoy have become thin on the ground.
