On so many levels yuck to this. I hope it bursts all over there bag

They probably travel with Tupperware so they can get lunch from the breakfast buffet.

Vile. I would also be praying they weren't sitting next to me / near me on my ex-LHR flight, pulling out said ziplock.

Well done Madame! The nerve of some people beggars belief, Your real handle here should be Nemesis.

So basically he takes food and turns into something not fit for a pig. I hope that he was if I may mix metaphores - as sick as a dog. That is disgusting - no - disgusting does not even come close. That is utterly vile.I suppose that he pinched the cutlery for good measure in order to gobble it up. I hope that the bag burst.

Hopefully after the flight - for the sake of his seatmates 😅! But totally agree, I was lost for words when I saw it. Maybe, just maybe, he was taking samples on behalf of the food safety agency (but lets be realistic, most probably not)!

Currently in the BA Lounge at GVA awaiting my IB flight back to MAD (funny enough when I was here last February 2023, they turned me away saying IB had its own contract lounge – no issues today).

Some bloke and his son spotted taking 3 cans of Coke from the fridge to go. One of the local staff who'd just walked out of the kitchen started very loudly making remarks, in English, about (paraphrased) "BA must be so cheap on board if people are taking these things", not in a particularly nice manner, before a sarcastic "enjoy your flight". I think it was rather lost on the passengers involved, who appeared to not be British.
