Flying Salt and Pepper pots to be decommissioned
Virgin Atlantic have announced that these aeroplane shaped salt and pepper pots (which accompany gourmet meals on Upper Class Flights) will no longer be available due to thefts by passengers.
Since these charming condiments were introduced some 10 years ago, they have become a ‘must-steal’ item among travellers and regularly appear on eBay selling for up to £20 each!
Such has been the rate of theft that recent versions were stamped with the message ‘Pinched from Virgin Atlantic’ as a deterrent, but they still went missing.
Virgin Atlantic spokeswoman Janine Doy said: “Who could have guessed that salt and pepper pots designed for our aircraft would one day be found in homes all over the world, and we are thankful to our Upper Class passengers for spreading the message around the globe”.
