Funny letter of complaint re. meal service on Virgin Atlantic

  1. Heck, on an Iberian Air flight, our compartment had a vote as to what the meat was. Burro got the most votes, then goat, then sheep, then bull.

    1. re: shallots

      You showed more energy and creativity dealing with the food than my husband and I were able to summon on our flight last month on Iberia Air in Business Class. The food on the Washington, DC--Madrid route in Business Class did not reach the culinary level of the mystery meat mounds we used to be served a decade ago in economy class on any airline. We poked at most dishes trying to fathom their identity. Took a few tentative bites of others. Consoled ourselves that we'd eat well in Madrid and sent back our food essentially untouched.

    2. Brilliant! Thank you!

      1. I squealed while reading this. I want to send this to everyone I know, foodie or otherwise.
