A passenger who wrote a letter of complaint to Virgin Atlantic expressing his dissatisfaction with the food offered in flight is now being offered the chance to be a food tester for the airline, the Daily Telegraph reported.
His complaint, contacting the chief executive of the airline Sir Richard Branson, was written after a flight from Mumbai to Heathrow on December 7 last year and has been widely praised for its humor.
Branson called the passenger and invited him to come to the airline’s catering month to help select the food on future Virgin flights.
“While we investigated his complaint seriously, and following Richard Branson’s phone call we’ve invited him to our catering house to select the next range of meals and wines we serve on board,” said a spokesman for Virgin Atlantic. “Then we can ensure his personal taste is well and truly catered for.”
The passenger has not yet said whether or not he will attend.
