Looking at the video, I do not believe that to be a maggot but some other bug. That bug appears to be crawling whereas maggots slither. That said Delta should have given $100 not $50 in compensation.

Delta probably reduced compensation as punishment for filming in portrait mode.

That does appear to be a maggot based on the movement and body contractions though.

Bugs in food, including salad, is fairly typical and producers will have some very small fraction of a % that is considered acceptable.

Acceptable unless you are the one with the bug in your salad.

Here's How Much Mouse Poop, Maggots, and Cigarette Butts the FDA Allows in Your Food

I post the link without an excerpt because most folks really don't want to know. So take a look at your own discretion.

Maggots in your veg means they are fresh and pesticide free!

(As a sidenote I'm not offended by the company response, $50 voucher seems good enough to get a decent maggot free meal)

If it had been a roach, now...

This is why it's hard to eat salad if I don't clean it first.

Buts get into lettuce etc and unless cleaned well can often stay. it sucks it made it to his plate and maybe delta meant 500 and forgot a 0.

I know you meant “bugs” but “but(t)s” works too, in more ways than one.

DL forgot to cater meals on my flight a couple years ago and gave me the same $50 credit, so compensation was consistent. The article makes a point that the pax paid for F, well the last time I flew DTW to SEA in F, I was RU and the person next to me was surprised how cheap her ticket was - $150 premium over Y. Lastly, I see salmon on that salad, so unless the PAX had ordered a vegetarian meal, I don't see the problem. Bah humbug, lets move on to the next fake news of the day.
