New York Post: She should have ordered a Happy Meal.
A 30-year-old vegetarian was so disgusted by the food she was served on a Newark-bound Continental Airlines flight yesterday that she threw the loaded tray at a flight attendant, sources said.
Things came to a boil somewhere between the Dominican Republic and Newark Airport after the passenger complained that her special meal didn't meet her culinary expectations. "She said she was a vegetarian and she didn't like what she was being served," said an airline official. "So she threw the food tray -- and the food -- at the attendant."
Sources said the meal was not vegetarian and the woman did not like the way it was served to her. The crew called the Port Authority, whose officers met the plane when it landed at Newark at 3:58 p.m.
The flight attendant declined to press charges against the passenger, who was not identified, but cops still filed a report. A Houston-based Continental spokesman confirmed the flight was met by PA cops, but he declined further comment.
