A passenger on board a Wizz Air flight from London Luton to Skopje on Sunday demanded a refund for the sandwich he purchased.
He’s Muslim. He bought a ‘turkey ham’ sandwich. It’s not turkey and ham. It’s ham-like meat made out of turkey. But midway through eating the 4.50 euro sandwich he decided it “didn’t taste like turkey” and he wanted his money back.
He insisted that since it said ham on the package it must contain pork, unacceptable to him as a Muslim.
At one point, he can be heard saying: ‘I work in restaurants, I know what’s ham. Ham is pork. It’s not tasting like turkey, it’s tasting like ham.
‘This is not right, you should tell people there is pork, I’m a Muslim. It’s pork, darling.’
Moments later, and apparently speaking to the person next to him, he then adds: ‘What the f*** is your problem stupid f****** b****, she’s a f******* b**** man. She told me it’s not appropriate to touch my teeth, f****** sl**.’
The flight attendant first explained that the meat inside was turkey. But then agreed to refund his money. Some words are beeped out in this video:
I completely believe that this man’s sandwich didn’t taste like turkey.
- It’s a buy on board turkey sandwich
- Artificially altered to taste like ham
- For sale on Wizz Air
- Shrink wrapped
It probably just tasted bad. While it may have been an affront to good taste, it was an unlikely an affront to the man’s religion.
American Airlines Muslim meals on the other hand are actually quite good.
