A JET2 passenger was left stunned after being served a "shocking" sandwich during the flight.
Alex Holowko was travelling with the tour operator from Scotland to Madeira, when he was served the meal on the 4.5 hour plane journey.
He took to TikTok to share his plane food experience, commenting: “A very accurate representation,” as he began the clip.
He showed an advert of what he was expecting his presumably ‘Tuna Crunch Roll’ to look like.
“The shocking reality,” he said, sharing footage of what he was served.
It showed the sandwich lathered in what looks like creamy mayonnaise on tiger bread with bits of red pepper.

However, it lacked in all the other ingredients including shredded tuna, cucumber and diced onion.
While some saw the funny side to Alex’s sad sandwich, others weren’t as sympathetic – with many defending the budget airline.
“Personally I’ve had great times flying with Jet2 and they honestly try their hardest to provide health and safety for all passengers,” one TikTok user wrote.
“It’s the catering staff and cooking staff not Jet2!” one person pointed out.

One person came to Alex’s defence, claiming many would have had a similar reaction: "Why is everyone so mad – you would’ve felt the same,."
A Jet2 spokesperson told Sun Online Travel: “We’re proud to deliver an award-winning experience from the moment people start their holidays with us, including our in-flight food and drinks.
"Our in-flight meals and sandwiches consistently receive great feedback from customers, so we’d like to apologise to the customer for any inconvenience caused on this isolated occasion. We will look into this with our supplier."
Last month, another Jet2 passenger was left stunned after they ordered a meal during the flight – and received something that looked nothing like the picture.
And in May, an easyJet passenger was also left shocked after paying £5 for the "worst airline food ever".
Experts have revealed why plane food always tastes bad – and it's to do with the cabin pressure.
The air on planes is extremely dry, which can dry out your nasal passages and make your taste buds less perceptive.
On top of that, the low cabin pressure decreases the levels of oxygen in your blood.
