Passenger orders a vegetarian meal... and we understand his disappointment
In-flight meals are often disappointing. Yes, the meals we get delivered are often unrecognisable when we compare them to the pictures printed in the menus.
However, we don’t think anyone would have expected this.
Steve Hogarty found out just how bad the in-flight meals can be when he requested a vegetarian meal on a recent flight.
While vegetarians are usually used to being short-changed in situations like these, the meal this passenger received was next-level disappointment.

“The vegetarian meal on this flight is an apple and a pear wrapped in clingfilm, served with a knife and fork,” read the caption on Steve’s picture.
The post quickly garnered a lot of attention, with many other veggies sharing their experiences of dodgy meals they’d received in the past.
Yes, it's a struggle we know all too well but this is pretty bleak.
