‘It’s the world’s saddest-looking roll!’ Irish author Liz Nugent slams Ryanair’s £4.70 bacon sandwich – as social media users joke it must be the ‘low-calorie option’

  • Irish author Liz Nugent took to Twitter to share a snap of bacon sandwich
  • It was ordered by her friend Aimee Woods on her Ryanair flight on Friday
  • Photo of dry-looking roll with shamefully inadequate amount of bacon went viral

A holidaymaker who flew with Ryanair has expressed her disappointment after she spent £4.70 (€5.50) on what social media users have branded the ‘world’s saddest-looking bacon sandwich.’

Irish author Liz Nugent took to Twitter to share a snap of the dry-looking roll which featured a shamefully inadequate quantity of bacon, which was ordered by her friend on her flight on Friday. 

Alongside the photo, she penned: ‘My pal @AimeeWoods21 paid €5.50 for this ‘bacon sandwich’ @Ryanair today. I’m trying to figure out if it qualifies.’

And it wasn’t long before Twitter users quickly waded in to answer her question – with the answer being a big, resounding ‘no.’ 

‘Must be the low calorie option,’ joked one, while a second commented: ‘I’m still hungry just looking at it.. never mind eating it.’

Liz went on to joke that it was ‘certainly a culinary experience,’ while others were left in hysterics over the lack of filling in the sandwich.

‘Ryanair’s T&Cs stretching to the rasher sandwich now too! ‘We reserve the right to withdraw the bacon in our bacon baguette,’ enthused one, while a second quipped: ‘I believe that’s called a Fake’n Sandwich.’

A third commented: ‘It’s like a thought experiment in how far the concept of ‘bacon sandwich’ can be whittled down before the thing falls apart. I’m enjoying Ryan Air’s new role as avante garde philosophers.’

Elsewhere, others took their bacon sandwich proportions much more seriously and were left in disbelief over the mid-flight snack.

‘This cannot be real,’ wrote one, while a second commented: ‘Oh my god I gasped in horror.’

And when a further person penned: ‘Bloody disgraceful, I hope she sent it back and got a refund,’ Aimee, who ordered the sandwich, responded: ‘To be honest I didn’t. I was starving.’ 

Aimee also went on to praise the rest of the flight – even if the bacon sandwich was a let down.  

‘I also had a lovely flight and the cabin crew were class,’ she wrote. I just found the sandwich humorous and slightly overpriced. Still ate it though!

‘I doubt people will book a flight based on the quality of a sandwich to be fair!’
