Taking off from Newark New Jersey for Germany, I got on my plane (United Airlines) with relatively great expectations because of the vegan menu provided by Lufthansa on my flight to the USA. Dinner was indeed quite good. It was something like Indian curry, a cookie, and a small salad. It turned out, however, that the staff apparently didn’t think that “requires special menu” applies to breakfast as well. In the morning, every passenger received a menu consisting of (dairy) yoghurt and a butter croissant. When I asked for a dairy-free, egg-free meal, they gave me a muffin containing eggs, a bit of butter, and about 5 grapes. When flying as a vegan, remember always to carry some extra food with you just in case!
