Redditors are disgusted by one man's photo of a pathetic breakfast sandwich

Aeroplane food is known for being terrible, but nobody ever said anything about airport food.

Earlier this week, Reddit user “spambox” posted a photo of a bacon and egg sandwich he was allegedly served in an airport in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Instead of a proper breakfast, the piece of bacon and egg were so tiny that they looked more like plastic, play-food.

Here’s a look at the pathetic meal which cost £3.20 or roughly $US5.

“I never asked for a refund as I figured it must just be overpriced s*** cause it’s an airport,” spambox writes of the bleak breakfast.

Since the image was shared on Sunday, it has received 1,593 reddit upvote points and many users are commenting in support.

The airport has since apologised for their culinary fail.

“Sadly on this occasion we fell below the mark and offer our apologies to this customer. Clearly this is not the service we should be providing and we will be addressing this complaint,” a spokesperson for the airport told The Scotsman.
