It’s no secret that the food on airplanes has generally gotten less appetizing over the years. Even first-class tickets won’t necessarily guarantee you a restaurant-quality meal. 

But one traveler shared her in-flight sandwich that is even shockingly bad by today’s standards. 

On Friday, Irish author Liz Nugent tweeted a photo of a sandwich her friend purchased during a Ryanair flight. She said her friend, Irish racing driver Aimee Woods, ordered a bacon sandwich and received what looked like a completely dry sandwich roll with two small pieces of meat inside. The meat didn’t appear to cover the surface area of the bread. 

Nugent tweeted, “My pal @AimeeWoods21 paid €5.50 for this ‘bacon sandwich’ @Ryanair today. I’m trying to figure out if it qualifies.”

Woods tweeted a response to her friend and wrote, “Lol 😂 the drinks helped though to be fair 😂.”

Twitter users replied to the photo with disbelief. One wrote, “This cannot be real,” while another dubbed it the “world’s saddest looking sandwich.”

When others who saw the photo asked if she had sent the sandwich back, asked for a refund, or filed a complaint, Woods tweeted that she didn’t take any sort of formal action. 

“To be honest I didn’t,” she wrote in response to one Twitter user. “I was starving 😂😂😂.”

Ryanair didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Despite this sad-looking sandwich, Woods said her flight was enjoyable and the crew members were great. “I just found the sandwich humorous and slightly overpriced,” she wrote on Twitter. “Still ate it though.”

Woods said she had texted the photo to her friend for no other reason than to share a laugh. She said she didn’t feel it was necessary to complain and just wanted to cure her momentary hunger. 

Woods didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
