    A passenger flying on holiday shared his annoyance this week after being served a sandwich on his flight.

    The holidaymaker ordered the dish from the easyJet in-flight menu, but claims it looked nothing like the photo.

    Airplane food is often lacklustre, but while a hot, free meal is usually happily accepted it’s disappointing to pay for a sub-par sarnie.

    Frank Tichborne posted about his experience on Facebook group “Easyjet Complaints Process – Not so Easy”, reports the Sun.

    He showed the image that easyJet advertised on their menu – a Christmas feast with delicious looking turkey, bacon, stuffing and cranberry as well as salad and soft bread.

    Unfortunately, Frank then shared a snap of what he was served.

    He wrote: "Do I need to explain my disappointment?

    "The Turkey and bacon were so thin, the only taste coming through the white sliced bread was the stuffing!"

    Nobody likes a stingy butty when you’re expecting to be tucking into all the classic Christmas flavours.

    In the comments, people were gobsmacked at the poor dish.

    One person wrote: "I'd have given it back and asked for a refund."

    Another added: "At least something that slightly resembles what you thought you were buying would be nice. That looks anaemic."

    A third noted that the sandwich was “awful”.

    But, many pointed out that plane food is usually disappointing and Frank’s expectations were too high.

    One wrote: “Anyone who buys food on the plane needs their head looking at."

    Another asked: "What did you expert. Haute cuisine?"

    EasyJet told The Daily Star: “We are sorry Mr Tichborne was disappointed with his sandwich and so will pass this feedback onto our in-flight retail supplier.”

    It’s not the first time a passenger has complained about an in-flight dish.

    Tegan Insley went viral on TikTok after being served a chicken and bacon roll which was missing almost all of the ingredients after not being able to eat for more than five hours.

    She was served an in-flight butty which was a bread bun filled with just butter and lettuce.

    Tegan captioned the video: “Jet2 did us dirty with our food on the plane. Jet2 please explain this.”

    Meanwhile, a flight attendant claimed she never eats the meals on the plane.

    Amber, an air hostess who has been flying for a US airline for years claimed that "airline meals are extremely unhealthy".

    She said: "I typically bring my own food: light sandwiches or pasta salad.”
