A passenger on an easyJet flight was stunned when he was served a sandwich that was seemingly 10 years out of date.
Adrian Bell was returning to the UK from a holiday in Zante when he purchased the cheese toastie.
He looked at the snack and realised that the best before date read June 16, 2007 – nearly ten years out of date at that time.
But easyJet insists that the item was not out of date, but instead was labelled incorrectly.
He instantly complained to staff on the flight.
He claims one quipped: “We should charge you more, it’s an antique”.
But easyJet this morning insisted that the sandwich was still in date, and the confusion came from an incorrectly printed label.
A spokesperson said: “We have looked into this with our in-flight partner and they have confirmed that this sandwich was in date.
“This was obviously a manual printing error and we are surprised that anyone would think it was anything else.”
