EasyJet apologizes for pork sandwiches

EasyJet apologized to Jewish passengers who were offered ham melts and bacon baguettes.

The budget airline has featured kosher and vegetarian sandwiches since its London-Tel Aviv route was introduced late last year, a spokeswoman told media outlets Tuesday. It is also the airline’s policy not to have any pork products on board the planes on that route.

The kosher menu includes egg, mayonnaise and tomato sandwiches; smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels; mozzarella and tomato panini; and a muffin or chocolate orange mini cake.

The wrong food canisters were loaded on the plane for the 4.5-hour flight, according to the airline spokeswoman.

“We would like to apologize to the passengers and can confirm we have done everything we can to ensure that this does not happen again,” the spokeswoman said.
