Jet2 becomes first UK airline to serve Nandos meals onboard

"What's the deal with aeroplane food?" is one of those questions comedians always seem to ask. I'll tell you what's wrong with it: it usually sucks, tasting cold, bland and slightly soggy, it's not something you can ever look forward to.

However, now Jet2.com has announced it will be the first UK airline to serve food from Nando's on their flights.

The budget airline intends to introduce Nando's Peri-Peri Flight Bites to their flights: a dip and dunk 'Nando's Box', which includes houmous, Peri-Peri drizzle and salted pita chips, and Nando's Half-popped Corn.

In a recent statement, spokesperson for Jet2.com said: "To give customers even more reason to feel sky-high with excitement this summer, Nando's vouchers can also be found in selected Nando's boxes onboard, entitling one person to a free Nando's meal. The new in-flight menu is Jet2.com's biggest and best yet, with a number of new additions to give customers more choice and variety than ever."

"Following the introduction of its first-ever in-flight vegan meal earlier this year, the warming and hearty penne arrabbiata pasta dish, the company has added the vegan and gluten-free 'Gnaw' chocolate bar, with Nando's Half-popped Corn also suitable for vegans."

Meanwhile, Jet2 CEO Steve Heapy stated: "The addition of these two fantastic snacking options give our customers even more great choice than ever, and mean that we are the first UK airline to offer Nando's products on our in-flight menu. We have already made a number of exciting changes to our menu this year, and we are sure this brand new menu will delight customers even more."

He added: "We pride ourselves on delivering the very best customer service in every area, which was recognised at the recent TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice awards for airlines where we won five awards, and we can't wait for our customers to try the exciting choice on this new menu."

Man, I'm actually now looking forward to my next flight: are you?
