Being vegetarian has definitely become more popular in recent years. In fact, it’s never been easier to find a restaurant with at least two or three vegetarian options on the menu.
But in some places, vegetarians are still missing out when it comes to viable options for a meal.
When it comes to in-flight meal options – airlines often fall short – and the passengers who suffer the most from uninspired airplane food are those with dietary requirements.
Passenger Steve Hogarty experienced this first hand when he ordered the vegetarian option on a recent flight with Colombian airline Avianca.
Steve, a London-based journalist, was served an apple and a pear wrapped in cling wrap, served with a set of plastic cutlery. Classy.
