An easyJet customer claims he was served the “worst airline food” after handing over £5 for a soggy baguette filled with a scattering of vegetables inside and another £2 for water he didn't get.
Alex was flying from Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to London Gatwick last week when he was served the miserable nosh.
The 38-year-old claims he paid £7 for a meal deal including a roasted vegetable and hummus baguette and a bottle of water.
He noted that the photos on the menu made him opt for the sarnie, as they showed a seeded baguette stuffed with courgette and bell pepper.
Under the veg was a thick layer of tasty hummus across the entire baguette.
But, the London man was gobsmacked when the flight attendant handed over his meal.
He took a video showing the inside of the baguette which contained just a handful of cubed vegetables all wedged on on side of the roll.
Alex also claims he never received his water as he ordered close to landing time.
Sharing the video online, he said: "Is this the worst airline food and advertising you've ever seen?
"I then sent the sandwich back, and got me a new one.
"Is this any better?
"A crew member then told me, 'You know, the food and the picture are not the same.'
"We were given three minutes to eat before landing, and never got our water."
On social media, people slammed the dish.
One person said: “That is a war crime."
Alex said: "I was in disbelief at first. It is the sort of stuff you hear about with airline food.
"I spoke to the crew and asked for another sandwich. The flight attendant told me 'not to be surprised' and that pictures rarely reflect reality.
"They gave me another and it was pretty much as bad."
And, easyJet’s food menu apparently claims that the sandwich can be served hot or cold.

It also states that it includes roasted vegetables, pesto and hummus.
A spokesperson for easyJet told DailyStar: ““We’re aware of this footage and will be looking into this with our in-flight retail supplier as it appears that the item served falls short of the high standards we expect from our inflight food and drink range for our customers.
“We will be in touch with the customer to apologise for their experience and provide a gesture of goodwill.”
