A Singapore Airlines passenger got a stomach ache over someone else’s toothache. Bradley Button was enjoying a meal served to him on a flight from Melbourne, Australia, to Wellington, New Zealand, Tuesday, when he encountered an unexpected crunch. It turns out the object in his rice was a human tooth – one that wasn’t his.
“I threw my guts up,” Button told reporters. “For the rest of the flight I was not well; just the idea of having someone else’s body part in my food is not nice.”
In a statement, Singapore Airlines acknowledged a passenger “found what appeared to be a foreign object in their meal” on flight SQ248 on Feb. 26.
“We are currently investigating this incident and have sent the object for analysis,” the statement reads. “Once the results of the analysis are known we will determine what the most appropriate course of action to take is.”
Button told reporters that he received a $75 voucher for his troubles, one that can only be used on duty-free items on Singapore Airlines flights.
The airline extended their apologies, adding they are “disappointed in this discovery.”
“We expect all of our meals to meet a consistently high standard,” the statement added.
