Sometimes, if you are a bit spicy, you simply can not beat a good sandwich.

That's exactly how a man felt when he recently got hungry on a flight from Bali to Australia.

Brighton-based marketing and event writer Nick Mosley really wanted a good sarnie during his Jetstar Airways trip, so he ordered a sandwich trio.

But when he got his sandwiches, he did not feel so impressed with the content and his stomach was unfortunately pretty empty.

After paying $ 9 AUS (just over £ 5) for his lunch, Nick was shocked to find he was missing something.

A "soggy" sandwich contained some margarine and a single lettuce leaf, another was the same, but also had some egg.

On Twitter he shared pictures of the sandwiches and their stuffy fillings.

He wrote, "I have to say @JetstarAirways has a jaw that charges AUS $ 9 for sandwiches … without fillings …

"Great for the end result, but not so good for filling customers."

JetstarAirways responded to the tweet that they would further investigate the topic.

A company spokesman later offered Nick a full refund and added, "We apologize for the unusual lack of stuffing in Mr. Mosley's sandwich and appreciate that it did not live up to expectations.

"It's unusual, we passed the feedback to our caterer."

Despite the apology, Nick told The Sun that sandwich food from gas stations looks like a "gastronomic feast."

He added, "I think airline food, whether it's included in the ticket price or available on the plane, must be decent and reflect the price appropriately.

"There will always be people on flights that travel longer with connecting flights, so bad food has a direct impact on well-being and the wallet."
