We all know airplane food isn’t the best, but sometimes I’m surprised. I was flying US Airways, and they were offering food for sale on the long flight. Here’s the image from their menu that tempted me:
I mean, it’s not going to set a world record for originality, but hey, that’ll do.
Here’s the description, from the menu:
Smoked turkey and brie sandwich – $8
Smoked turkey breast, frisee lettuce, Brie and cranberry chutney on a nine grain flatbread, with Sun Chips and Milano cookies.
Wow! Pretty nice, US Airways! Brie and cranberry chutney on my airplane turkey sandwich!
So I ordered one.
I know, the title already gave this away, but if you haven’t scrolled down yet, you’re not prepared for…
Here’s what the real sandwich looked like.
I just… wait. What?
But that’s… not…
Wait, is that little dab of white supposed to be the Brie? Or is that mayonnaise?
I took a bite, but I didn’t taste any Brie or cranberry chutney. So I peeked inside.
Welcome to the wonderful world of advertising.
Have a happy flight!
