Airline Passenger Gets The Short Straw For 'Vegetarian' In-Flight Meal

If you follow a vegetarian diet, there are usually certain advantages when it comes to flying. Not only do you get served before anybody else, the meals also tend to taste a little better than your usual airline food.

Sadly, though, this preferential treatment is not always the case, as one bloke who ended up being fobbed off with an apple and pear wrapped in clingfilm found out recently.

Journalist James Hogarty got served the mediocre meal when he ordered the vegetarian option on a recent flight with Colombian airline Avianca.

He was a bit pissed off with what he received and, although the food hardly met the standards you'd hope for, at least Avianca's customer service is a bit better than their vegetarian grub.

The airline responded on Twitter, writing: "Service is our priority, please let us know your flight date/number and also your contact information via DM. This is not our standard so we surely will investigate as soon as possible."

But not everyone took the issue seriously:
