A shocked passenger on a China Eastern Airlines flight posted a photo of the business class menu online. However, The man said that the airline was feeding its passengers “imported dog food.”
A passenger’s photo from a China Eastern Airlines flight reveals the business class menu, which consists of soup, steak, and seafood dishes. But one unfortunate English translation has sparked discussion. “Imported dog food with okra” is one of the starter options. Conrad Wu posted the picture to Facebook along with the question, “What exactly is it?”
The public responded to the post in a variety of ways. Someone said it had to be a sign of the airline treating its customers like dogs.
A second person said it wouldn’t be shocking if dog food was actually offered on the menu given the increase in pets traveling in business class or in the cabin with their owners.
“No, when you read the rest of the menu, almost 90% of the English is wrong,” a user wrote, clarifying that it was a translation error. A joke of an international airline, that.” But it’s still unclear to what extent the China Eastern flight’s translated menu is referring.
