Other fliers also shared their experiences. One of the posts’ read: “Completely agree.. I was served some chicken curry rice on my flight from SG to MUM.. Was like chewing through raw masala.. Suffered heartburn for the rest of the day. The dessert was really good though.” (sic)
One termed is just a bad luck: “Bad luck, I travel frequently and prefer Vistara, and never experienced bad quality food. I always liked it.” (sic)
This came after a passenger criticized Vistara for not offering non-vegetarian meal choices on a short flight a few days ago.

The user wrote: “I don’t get the connection between duration and non-veg,” said the post. Criticizing the airline’s policy, the post added, “Vistara should call themselves a half-service airline!” (sic)
