Virginity well and truly lost ......

Virgin Atlantic guest, Oliver Beale, was unimpressed when culinary offerings on a recent flight from Mumbai to London fell short of even the usual limitations of airline food. He wrote directly to Virgin icon Richard Branson in what is regarded as one of the better complaint letters, with photographic evidence.

"On the left we have a piece of broccoli and some peppers in a brown glue-like oil and on the right the chef had prepared some mashed potato. The potato masher had obviously broken and so it was decided the next best thing would be to pass the potatoes through the digestive tract of a bird.

Once it was regurgitated it was clearly then blended and mixed with a bit of mustard. Everybody likes a bit of mustard Richard."

It's been reported Branson has apologised personally and invited Beale to select food and wine for future flights. Virgin Atlantic has just celebrated its 25th anniversary.

The "passenger" who allegedly wrote the letter about this meal is admittedly a "marketing professional". This has all the hallmarks of a Richard Branson marketing scam.
