Instagrammer Threatened With Criminal Charges for Posting Photo of Handwritten In-Flight Menu
Airlines often have little incentive to keep their food menus exciting as they’re pretty much dealing with a captive audience. One Instagrammer, however, is trying to keep them honest. Rius Vernanes, a self-described “miles geek” with over 100k followers, was flying business class on Garuda Indonesia last weekend when he was appalled by the in-flight food menu he was given. It was a handwritten (although very neatly written) menu on a sheet of spiral-bound paper — a shock to the expectations of anyone flying in business class. Vernanes posted a photo of the menu on his Instagram Story with the caption, “They told me the menu was still being printed,” and of course, it went viral.
