Airline: VS
Class: Y
Route: MAN-JFK
Caterer: Food Story
Hechsher: KLBD
Flight date: 3/15/20
Meal in pics: Coming soon
Stogel-Hermolis Scale Score (1-10): 3

This is a new low.

Don't know if this has been a thing for a while now but I've never heard of it and I've been flying transatlantic for nearly 3 decades now.
When you're expecting Hermolis and you get this cr*p, let's just say it's a real bummer...

KSML food by Borenstein brand as Regal-Glatt available :)
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?
