VIRGIN ATLANTIC REMOVES 'PALESTINIAN' FROM IN-FLIGHT DISH DESCRIPTION AFTER COMPLAINTS FROM ISRAEL-SUPPORTING CUSTOMERS

Virgin Atlantic has changed the name of an in-flight meal after social media backlash from pro-Israel supporters.

The dish – a mix of Maftoul and other couscous, tomatoes and cucumber seasoned with parsley, mint and lemon vinaigrette – was formerly called “Palestinian couscous salad” on the menu.

However, the name has since been changed to “couscous salad” after various complaints. Some social media users threatened to boycott the airline, accusing Virgin of being “terrorist sympathisers”.
