Woman Sold The 'World's Saddest' Bacon Sandwich On Ryanair Flight

Woman Sold The 'World's Saddest' Bacon Sandwich On Ryanair Flight

If you think you've ever had an underwhelming breakfast in an airport, take a look at this picture of the 'world's saddest' bacon sandwich that was sold for £4.70 on a Ryanair flight last week.

Author Liz Nugent shared a picture of the forlorn sandwich on Twitter after her pal ordered it on a flight last Friday.

As you can see, it's pretty tragic. There's just a couple of wee bits of bacon on a large bread roll, and not even a bit of sauce.

For this, her friend Aimee apparently paid €5.50 (£4.70), which is steep for what she's been given.

Nugent shared a photo of the disappointing breakfast, writing: "My pal Aimee paid €5.50 for this 'bacon sandwich'. I'm trying to figure out if it qualifies."

She described eating the sandwich as a 'culinary experience', and she's not wrong. A disappointing experience is still an experience, nonetheless.

Naturally, the reaction to her post has been one of shock and distress, because it should be a crime to serve up a sandwich like this.


A disgrace to the humble bacon sarnie - you'd think it would be pretty tough to get it this wrong.

One person joked: "Surely this is grounds to sue for pain and distress!"

Another referred to it as 'the world's saddest looking sandwich'.


A third, and more circumspect, person said: "It's like a thought experiment in how far the concept of 'bacon sandwich' can be whittled down before the thing falls apart.

"I'm enjoying Ryanair's new role as avant-garde philosophers."

Perhaps it is a gastronomic experiment? A deconstructed breakfast butty?

Others have suggested a different hypothesis.


An online sleuth suggested: "This looks like whoever was making it got a little bit peckish."

Either way, the most important opinion comes from the person who ate the sandwich, and while it was a little bit disappointing for her, she remained upbeat about the whole situation.

Aimee said that - despite the appearance - she still ate the sarnie. She also added: "I also had a lovely flight and the cabin crew were class."


She continued: "I just found the sandwich humorous and slightly overpriced. Still ate it though!

"I doubt people will book a flight based on the quality of a sandwich to be fair!"

Well, that's true. If the flights are reasonable, the quality of the bacon sandwich is definitely a secondary concern.

Still, it couldn't hurt for them to fling an extra slice of bacon and some brown - or red, if that's your thing - sauce on it.

LADbible has contacted Ryanair for comment.
