Turkish airline steward discovers SNAKE HEAD found in an in-flight meal


SNAKE HEAD is found in an in-flight meal: Turkish airline steward discovers grim addition to their dinner… AFTER eating most of it!

  • SunExpress steward was eating a meal on board a flight from Turkey to Germany
  • After finishing most of the dish, they discovered a severed snake’s head 
  • Airline has suspended its catering company while an investigation is carried out 
  • But the caterer has flat-out denied that it is responsible for the grim discovery 

We all have horror stories about airline food – but perhaps nobody can lay claim to a story as stomach-churning as this airline steward.

That’s because the unfortunate SunExpress employee found a severed snake’s head in their lunch, but only after eating most of the meal.

The revolting video shows how the head was found on a flight from Turkey to Germany last week, concealed at the bottom of a dish of ravioli and leafy greens.

Airline crew were working an early flight from the Turkish capital Ankara to Dusseldorf on July 21 when the grim discovery was made.

Taking off at 3.30am local time in Turkey, the budget airline Flight XQ794 was making a three hour 45 minute trip to western Germany.

The unfortunate steward in question had eaten about half of their meal when they discovered the reptile head at the bottom of the food container

Well-disguised among the greens, the snake's head appears about the size of a large grape and has been severed from the body just below the skull.

While in the air, crew sat down to eat breakfast – which appeared to consist of a drink, side salad, bread roll, and a hot dish of ravioli and greens.

Well-disguised among the greens, the snake’s head appears about the size of a large grape and has been severed from the body just below the skull.

What little remains of its body appears dark green or black in colour and has distinctive yellow stripes running along its length.

Turkey is home to several dozen native species of snake – some of them venomous – though none obviously matches the one found on the flight.

SunExpress said it has suspended its catering company, named by local media as Sancak Inflight, until an investigation can be carried out.

It is not the first time problems have been flagged with the company’s meals, with snails and mold found by staff previously, Gazete Duvar reports.

A spokesman for the airline said: ‘It is our top priority that the services we provide to our guests on our aircraft are of the highest quality and that both our guests and employees have a comfortable and safe flight experience.

‘The allegations and shares in the press regarding in-flight food service are absolutely unacceptable and a detailed investigation has been initiated.

‘Until the research process is concluded, all preventive measures and actions, including stopping the supply of the relevant product, have been taken immediately.’

But Sancak flat-out denied the snake head came from one of its facilities, and said it must have been introduced to the meal after it left the factory.

A spokesman said: ‘SunExpress Airlines is a valuable client in our country and a popular airline in Europe, which recently decided to further expand its fleet and route network. They again announced a tender for catering services on board.

‘We did not use any of the foreign objects that were supposedly in the food when cooking (due to the technical and thermal conditions used in the in-flight catering facilities).’
