Ordering food on flights gets me thinking about all the unnecessary spending. It’s like one of those nights where I’m revisiting all the bad decisions. Because, the only thing that comes to our mind when we browse through the in-flight menu is – kuchh bhi?
And, this Twitter thread about expensive food on flights is proof that a lot of people know the feeling. It all started when digital creator, Pulkit Kochar shared an image of the menu from his flight, where the cost of a Vada Pav was ₹250. Of course, desis joined in.

The entire experience of buying food in a plane is a dilemma in itself. We are hungry but we do not want to spend unjustifiably, and then there’s the added pressure of saying ‘no’. People couldn’t help but vent about this.

Last week (out of desperation) I ate that grey airport samosa. Not one but two airport samosas. I still think about it and retch. https://t.co/ZP8iHqm5OD
Almost 5 years ago I bought poha in flight for ₹200 just because I couldn't say no to the staff…— I AM WEED (@Stoic_Shiv) March 13, 2022
Bruh I had a chicken roll at the airport once 😬 260 bucks. Decided to boycott airport or airlines food since that day— 💀 (@ostricheggslmao) March 14, 2022
Some of us have a hard time sayin "no" 😬— Shivani Kava (@virginmojito__) March 14, 2022
Some were even offended by how the vada pav looked and the fact that they spelled it ‘vada pao’. Because, feel bhi toh aani chahiye dekh ke.

Pav ko pao bolke pav ki toheen mat karo yaar https://t.co/GLEO55UPZm— Jyoti J. (@JyotiBaneJwala) March 14, 2022
250 for vada pav is outrageous but at least make it look appetizing on the menu FFS https://t.co/k5jpfRxBfg— Cresida Rodrigues (@crxsydz) March 14, 2022
It doesn’t even look appetizing. Looks like they edited a burger stock photo to look like vada pav & failed. 😅— Mira N (@MiraNaik) March 14, 2022
I find the absolute symmetry of the vada & the pao offensive. https://t.co/61Cc6lkViB— anupma (@anupmabakshi) March 14, 2022
There were others who had a good laugh about it. And, why not?
