Vegan passenger slams KLM after she was served fruit and nuts as hot meal on flight from Ghana to Heathrow
- Juanita Headley has slammed the food KLM gave her during a six-hour flight
- She said she was served fruit, nuts and a cold wrap despite opting for a hot meal
A vegan passenger has slammed an airline after claiming she was given fruit and nuts when she had asked for a hot meal.
Juanita Headley had been travelling 4,600 miles from Accra, Ghana to London Heathrow with airline KLM.
The motivational speaker had already opted for a hot meal on board – as part of the complimentary service for intercontinental flights.
But when on board the six-hour connecting flight, she said she was given pineapple pieces, a tangerine and a handful of nuts.
A few hours later, she claimed crew gave her a cold vegan wrap, a banana and an additional bowl of nuts.

She has slammed KLM as ‘a joke’ for her lacklustre meal.
Juanita, of north London said: ‘I’m sorry, it doesn’t feed a hungry passenger on an international flight.
‘Thank God I don’t have a nut allergy or I would have been on fruit rations.
‘In this day and age where veganism isn’t a new phenomena it is unacceptable that a six-hour long haul flight don’t carry a few extra meals for situations like this.
‘Or at a minimum make sure the vegetarian meal is also vegan.
‘That would make life very simple for crew and passengers.’
She uploaded snaps of the food online – where fellow vegans shared in her anger, flooding the comments section with criticism.
One seething vegan said: ‘In 2023 that’s simply outrageous.’
Another veggie added: ‘Sorry you’ve had this experience, I’ve had similar but in 2014 and ever since I’ve always carried food just in case.’
A third said: ‘Looks like an afterthought. I’m sorry.’

Another vegan said: ‘How difficult is it to have an Alpro yoghurt, tomato, broccoli and vegan cheese pasta? Basic stuff.
‘And KLM Airlines aren’t the cheapest to fly with so this is outrageous.’
But some were less sympathetic.
One passenger said: ‘Why do people never bring their own food is baffling.’
Another flyer added: ‘I reckon you’ll survive six hours.’
The Dutch airline’s policy for meals on intercontinental flights states that customers will be provided with ‘a warm dish of your choice, large salad, and dessert’.
It also states that ‘there’s always a number of vegetarian options available,’ but makes no mention of vegan options.
MailOnline has contacted KLM for comment.
