AN EASYJET passenger was left shocked after paying £5 for the "worst airline food ever".

Alex was flying from Paris to London Gatwick when he was served the disappointing meal.


The 38-year-old paid £7 for the easyJet meal deal and decided to order a bottle of water and Roasted Vegetable and Houmous Baguette, costing £5, after being drawn in by the menu's images.

Images of the snack showed a seeded baguette, filled with dozens of pieces of courgette and red peppers.

The vegetables lay on a thick layering of houmous and have been spread across the entire baguette.

However, the Londoner couldn't believe his eyes when the stewardess served him up his plane food, which was sparse from any filling whatsoever.

Alex captured a video showing him opening up the baguette to just a small cluster of veg.

Around seven cubes of vegetables have collected at one side of the seeded roll.

Alex also claims that he was not given the bottle of water in the meal deal he was ordered as it was too close to landing time.

He shared the video on social media last week, writing: “Is this the worst airline food and advertising you’ve ever seen?

“I then sent the sandwich back, and got me a new one. Is this any better?

“A crew member then told me, ‘You know, the food and the picture are not the same. We were given three minutes to eat before landing, and never got our water.”

Social media users were also not impressed, with one commenting: "That is a war crime."

Speaking today, Alex said: “I was in disbelief at first. It is the sort of stuff you hear about with airline food. I spoke to the crew and asked for another sandwich.

“The flight attendant told me ‘not to be surprised' and that pictures rarely reflect reality. They gave me another and it was pretty much as bad.”

According to easyJet’s food menu, the sandwich, which can be served hot or cold, includes roasted vegetables, pesto and houmous.

EasyJet has been contacted for comment.
