GettyChoosing a vegetarian meal on a flight could prevent you from getting this amazing opportunity
Plane food is rarely anything extraordinary and is known for being rather bland and tasteless.
One poor passenger once requested a lobster roll only to receive something entirely different and unappetising.
Many travellers opt for a vegetarian in-flight meal instead of the standard meal because specially ordered options can be better quality as they aren't mass-produced.
What many holidaymakers may not realise is that by choosing a vegetarian meal, they could be blocked from an amazing opportunity on the flight.Related articles
If ordering a vegetarian meal, or any dish that isn't part of the standard options, it could reduce the chances of getting a flight upgrade.
If there are seats available in business class then a passenger flying in economy class could be lucky enough to get bumped up.
However, if they have chosen a vegetarian meal, they may not get upgraded as the plane is less likely to have a vegetarian option in first class.
Therefore they're more likely to look for another person flying with a normal meal option.
