Passengers travelling on a 12-hour British Airways flight have been served KFC rather than their regular meals after the airline encountered a ‘catering issue’.
It seems that the plane’s catering carts weren’t chilled properly, meaning they had to throw away all of their meals on the flight from Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands to London Heathrow Airport.
Jumping off this story, Clairsy & Lisa wanted to know about the worst meal you’ve ever had on a plane… hit PLAY to listen!
So the airline did what any of us would do – grab some KFC!
Watch the video of the cabin crew handing out the goods below.
Now if you’re anything like us, you’d be thinking that getting served KFC would be heaven on a long flight but it wasn’t all as it seems.
After the cabin crew searched the airport and returned with buckets of KFC chicken, passengers were given one piece of chicken each. On a 12-hour flight.
One passenger shared a photo of them with their little portion on Twitter.
@British_Airways just landed @HeathrowAirport after a 12.5 hour flight BA252 from Turks and Caicos with no catering! BA had to serve @kfc at Nassau giving some lucky passengers 1 piece of chicken. The container with the plane catering wasn’t chilled so all thrown away!! pic.twitter.com/U5IcBD2hRy

To compensate for the inconvenience, British Airways gave customers a refreshment voucher upon landing.
“We apologise to customers that their full meal service was not available and we had to wing it on this occasion,” the airline said.
Talk about having to ‘wing’ it…
