An Aussie passenger who recently flew Emirates has called out the airline for its sad attempt at a chicken sandwich.
Paul Carlin spent thousands on flights from Brisbane to Dublin over the Christmas break, but was left unsatisfied with an inflight meal that was served to him – a Cajun chicken and cheese sanga with the piddliest bit of chicken.
Carlin shared the above photo of the meal – which makes any uni student’s cooking attempt look like three-hat quality – on social media in response to a Jetstar customer’s disappointment over his $9 egg sandwich (see below).
Speaking to The Independent, Carlin said his mouth was left “as dry as the Sahara Desert” after taking a bite of the chicken sambo, while his partner didn’t even eat hers.
“I was angry and frustrated because I knew we had paid thousands of dollars for the flight only to get such poor food,” he said. In this case, I wouldn’t say you get what you pay for.”
Carlin complained in writing to Emirates, and was told by the airline that it was looking into the case, according to The Independent.
