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'.
Must be the low calorie option

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."
*It looks like a bacon sandwich but with no bacon and no sandwich*

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!"
That 'sandwich' was made by a vegan who passive-aggressively hates their job

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.
