Man Shares Photo Of $9 Aeroplane Sandwich Containing Just One Piece Of Lettuce
A man has shared a photo of the pretty sad-looking butty he was served up on board a plane recently.
Nick Mosley was flying from Bali to Australia with Jetstar, when he decided to treat himself to a 'Deli Trio' of sandwiches costing AUS$9 (£5).
But when he opened up one of the sarnies, he found a single lettuce leaf atop a little bit of egg mayo mix and a sloppy smear of margarine. Mmm - delicious.
I must say @JetstarAirways have a cheek charging AUS$9 for sandwiches... without any fillings... Great for their bottom line but not so good for filling the tums of customers pic.twitter.com/dok9GicE9E

He told the Daily Mail: "I had a bit of a craving for a sandwich. Having eaten many sandwiches in my life, it wouldn't have crossed my mind to peel back the bread to check the filling.
"However, after the first mouthful of somewhat soggy bread and margarine, peel back I did.
"I paid for it so there is really is no excuse for serving inadequate products. It was a shocker - it made a petrol station sandwich look like a gastronomic feast."
He tweeted some photos of the meagre-looking sandwiches to Jetstar writing: "I must say @JetstarAirways have a cheek charging AUS$9 for sandwiches... without any fillings... Great for their bottom line but not so good for filling the tums of customers."
According to the packaging, the sandwiches should have been 'egg with mayo and lettuce on white bread' - which it sort of maybe...kind of was - a 'cream cheese with roasted red pepper on wholemeal bread' and 'tuna mayo with onion relish on white bread'.
He also shared another photo of a disappointing sandwich that, I think, was supposed to be the cream cheese and pepper one, but it's hard to tell, isn't it?
Nick added: "I think airline food, whether it's included in the ticket price or available to buy on the plane, has to be decent and a fair reflection of the price.
"There are always going to be people on flights who are on longer journeys with connecting flights, so poor food has a direct impact on well-being as well as the wallet."
A spokesperson for Jetstar Airways said: "We apologise for the unusual lack of filling in Mr Mosley's sandwich, and appreciate it did not meet expectations.
"It is unusual. We've passed the feedback onto our caterer."
