Airline passengers share photos of their worst in-flight meals



Slide 1 of 12: 
 Airline passengers have shared images of the worst in-flight
 meals they've ever had. 
 Sent to consumer group 
 Which? by its global database of members over the summer,
 the pictures show delights such as shrivelled mushrooms and
 congealed "slop." 
 Even 
 flying business class doesn't mean you're safe.

 When it comes to what you're going to find when you peel back the
 foil of an airline meal, very few people have high expectations.
 In-flight meals, especially when flying economy, are notoriously
 unappetizing.
 However, some are particularly bad, as 
 new photos shared by consumer group Which? demonstrate.
 Over the summer, Which? asked its global members to send in
 photos of the worst in-flight meals they've ever had, and they're
 pretty horrendous.

Slide 2 of 12: 
 Passenger Billy Shearer described this meal - a soggy potato
 waffle, sausage, congealed white pudding, and shrivelled
 mushrooms - as a "monstrosity," far from 
 Ryanair's claim that its breakfasts are "the perfect option
 to fill up and start your day with."
Slide 3 of 12: 
 When Yannis Psomadakis requested a low-lactose meal on a BA
 flight, he was expecting something more appetizing than this fish
 and mush, AKA cod with spinach and pulses.
 "The taste of dry cod and steamed spinach was not much to write
 home about. I had to pick the peppers and wrap the spinach at
 every bite to make it 'swallowable,'" he told Which?
Slide 4 of 12: 
 This incredibly sad-looking breakfast "tasted as good as it
 looked," passenger Nick Avery told Which?
 At least he was given a decent-sized bottle of water to wash it
 all down.
Slide 5 of 12: 
 Bad breakfasts seem to be ubiquitous, with even British Airways'
 full English leaving a lot to be desired, according to one
 passenger.
Slide 6 of 12: 
 This unidentifiable mush is, apparently, chicken and mash. The
 passenger who had the greasy meal inflicted upon her described it
 as "slop."
Slide 7 of 12: 
 Even flying business doesn't mean you're safe from tragic food -
 take this chicken Biryani, for example, which David Ball was
 served on a flight from London to Mauritius.
 "What you see in the picture is a chunk of dry chicken, a piece
 of dead, burnt cauliflower, a spoonful of gunk and overcooked
 rice. Awful," he told Which?
Slide 8 of 12: 
 Just because it's served on chinaware, doesn't mean it'll be
 good, as this premium economy meal shows. 
 On Ball's return journey he flew in BA's World Traveller Plus
 class, but was dismayed to be served a "so-called omelette."
 "It tasted exactly as it appears in the photo - disgusting," he
 said.
Slide 9 of 12: 
 The passenger who received this beef, mash, and veggies dish was
 not impressed, describing it as "overcooked and burnt on the
 edges."
Slide 10 of 12: 
 This BA passenger was disappointed by their meal which appears to
 be 85% rice.
Slide 11 of 12: 
 This tragic-looking meal appears to be plain penne, some sort of
 tomato chicken and a couple of pieces of roasted veg, which could
 be aubergine or courgette.
Slide 12 of 12: 
 Served in a cardboard box, here we have unidentifiable brown
 meat, a swipe of mash, and what appear to be overcooked peas and
 green beans. Bon appétit!
