Our first flight of 2015 will take us from Paris to Copenhagen aboard SAS and today no meals are included in the price of our ticket. Our previous inflight meal experience with SAS can be viewed here and if you would like to view the inflight menu or see what’s included next time you fly, check here.

WHAT WE ORDERED

Our eyes were drawn to the heavily topped pizza which looked filling and delicious, we ordered a tomato juice to wash it down and waited about 10 minutes for our pizza to be heated. The pizza by itself will set you back €6.00 whilst as a ‘combo’ deal with a Beer and Chocolate it will cost €13.00!

Tip- If you see tomato juice on an inflight menu order it, it tastes great at 35,000ft. Why? Tomatoes are rich in Umami and the high altitude makes them taste better than they do on the ground.

THE PIZZA

And so after 10 minutes our “Margherita Pizza” showed up on our tray table, which looked nothing like the pizza on the flight menu…..

Needless to say after one bite we were convinced that this inflight pizza would go down as one of the worst things we have tasted inflight for quite a while.

A piece of cardboard with tomato paste and cheese slapped on would taste better than this dry and stale tasteless pizza. First world problems, we know, but when you are paying €6.00 for a slice of pizza you expect a level of quality, or at least for the picture to resemble what was displayed on the menu.

Upon sharing our observations with our Instagram friends, we quickly found out that the pizza in question is notoriously known to be bad.
