Reading some more, these were found on a few flights out of AMS.
It seems only a handful of pax found these. There is also a notable coincidence...
"In a federal report on the incidents, it was noted that the teen [on an ams-atl flight] was the son of a passenger aboard the flight to Minneapolis who also found a needle in his sandwich."
Think it is a hoax?
Might be. A friend of mine works in food safety. He mentioned they use everything from magnets to metal detectors to keep foreign objects out of food. I thought most airline food is prepared by vendors who would use a similar process.
Not a hoax it seems.....
"Have you had a bad experience with food during your flight? Share with us in the comments below."
Where to begin?
that is inviting a deluge of comments......
Ahh, very good. Now what madness will arise from this?
No sandwiches with over 4 slices of meat through security, unless the meat is under 1 oz and in separate plastic baggie.
No sandwiches over 3 inches long, all non-edible objects must be clearly visible. No sauces, mustards or mayo can be applied in case a “sandwich shakedown” is necessary.
Passengers are expected to remove the top slice of bread when a security officer announces “Level 4 lunchmeat alert”
Delta has decided to make a new sandwich to increase safety (and coincidentally contain costs).
Here is a picture of their new first class dinner offering.
I wonder if folks redeeming awards for less than 300,000 miles just aren't entitled to the standard catering?
Wow! Delta has 18 flights a day from AMS?
Without checking, many are probably ST carriers. We know that they have cut MSP, DTW, MEM and increased the flights to the center of DL's universe which I always try to avoid!!
I don't think it could have been planned towards specific people. I'm not ruling out that there were needles intentionally put in the sandwiches. I just don't think (if it was done on purpose) that there were specific people targets. Don't think sandwiches are pre-assigned to people.
Food isn't pre-assigned to a particular person unless it's a preordered meal (Kosher, Vegetarian, etc.)
Exactly which is why I think if the needles were purposely put in the sandwiches it wasn't targeted towards a specific person.
