Airline Exclusive Meal Serves Snake Heads


If adventurous people love flying and snakes, they might be thrilled to hear the latest airline combination.

A SunExpress flight attendant was ready to eat their in-flight meal when the fork latched onto something slimy and unusual. A closer look revealed a snake head plated on the tray. Everyone knows that in-flight food is far from a fine dining experience but at the same time, no one expects to see a reptile served on the menu.

This strange experience occurred during a flight from Ankara, Turkey, to Dusseldorf, Germany.

Unfortunately, the crew member was already pretty deep with a few bites when the snake’s eyes glared at them. The flight attendant stopped eating as that glimpse was enough to suppress their appetite. The snake head was in the middle of the tray, along with some potatoes and vegetables.

Of course, officials would deny the occurrence as their fault to save their brand reputation. Sancak Inflight Services, the airline food supplier, denied that the snake head came from its kitchen due to strict protocols.

Sancak defended themselves by stating that their dishes are cooked at 280 degrees Celsius. The snake head seems too fresh so they concluded that it would have been added after the meal had been prepared. The claim sounds very convincing since it is no one’s fault and snakes naturally leave their habitats on their own to end up in peoples’ mouths.

A SunExpress representative said: “It is our top priority that the services we provide to our guests on our aircraft are of the highest quality and that both our guests and employees have a comfortable and safe flight experience.”

It is challenging to ensure high-quality service when people are perplexed at what remains hidden in their food. Is the menu really an accurate description of the contents found in the meal?

For future air travelers, use your discretion and do some digging before you open your mouth.
