In the detailed caption of her Instagram video, Kushboo Gupta wrote, “I will lodge an official complaint via email soon. But as a Public Health professional, I want to know despite knowing the quality of the sandwich was not good and informing the flight attendant prior, she still continued to serve sandwiches to other passengers. There were kids, elderly and other passengers …. What if anyone catches an infection? A polite note or informing the Passengers would have saved them from eating the sandwich. I immediately rushed or conveyed to her after consuming one bite but all she said ‘I will replace it with some other thing. I will bring it to the department notice and later come with a goodie,’ which I refused to take. I didn’t want to create a panic situation … but her first action should have been to make other passengers aware so that they make an informed decision about consuming the sandwich or not.”

Just one assurance that passenger health and safety should be your top priority,” Kushboo Gupta added.
