UK budget airline easyJet apologized Tuesday to Jewish customers after the only food choices served on a flight from Israel were ham melts and bacon baguettes.

No goats boiled in its mother's milk?

On the plus side: extra servings for gentiles.

No bacon cheeseburgers?

Bacon Baguettes WBAGNF...lunch!

Just nibble around the pig parts.

incorrect food canisters were loaded

Meant for the gentiles and infidels going to hell in style route.

Up, up and Oy Vey!

I taught Hebrew at a synagogue for a while, but I have to admit bacon won out in the end.
Which flight goes to the handbasket?

Mebbe if they'd've told 'em it wuz CANADIAN Bacon it would've been OK ... that's not REAL bacon ...

Oh ... um ... nevermind ...

Least they apologized. I was served such food once, and the airline insisted it was kosher.

Deleted scene from "Airplane":

I'm sorry, did you have the chicken, or the gifelte fish?

To make up for it, they'll be showing Woody Allen movies on all flights for the next month and changing the airline name to haymish Jet.

*snork* @ bon.

Bon and Shark you made me spritz a little!

This incident will pass over, and all will be forgotten. However, I think an apology for airline food in general is long overdue.

har, meanie with that pass over comment.
see the thing is, if you eat somethhing NOT kosher, but you didnt know it wasnt kosher, how can you be guilty? ham doesnt LOOK like pig necessarily.
i gave up kosher for lent many moons ago. i love bacon.
i may be needing that handbasket.

Where does the concessionaire even BUY that stuff in Israel?
