From the Chicago Tribune website..

WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- Australian carrier Qantas said Tuesday it has changed its lettuce supplier after a passenger on a flight from Melbourne to Wellington found a live frog in her greens.

The one-inch Australian whistling tree frog didn't get a chance to hop away. The woman plunked the lid back on her meal preventing any escape.

Hang on guys...maybe the flight was full of passengers connecting to Papeete, and they thought, well most likely appreciate french culture.

I would like to suggest Snails for future flights.... now that would be service.

PS - lucky it wasn't virgin...errr. pacific blue... I bet some young gun would have dared to eat the frog!

I hope they kept the frog safe. Whistling tree frogs are rather rare!


Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Actually they handed the frog over to customs in NZ, who then froze it to death, as they were worried about possible diseases etc.

Thinking about it, death by live consumption inflight by drunken virginblue youth may have been a more fitting end.

I bet that made that pax 'jump'...at least the food was fresh and better it was alive not dead...imanage what we would say here if it was on AF...but this raises a serious question as to how did a frog end up in a caterers food supplies? Didn't someone see this when they were preparing it?

I think this topic belongs here as much as any other topic....Isn't this website about airliners?.....Qantas is an airline with frog, but still an airline...

Unbelievable. I heard this on the radio this aftrnoon while I was at work and I knew someone would post it.

Probably a stupid joke from a passenger.

Or maybe the frog wanted to be kissed by a gorgeous f/a.  Big grin

Who would turn out to be the frog then?



I love both Airbus and Boeing as much as I love aviation!

I heard this on a Boston radio this afternoon:


"A passenger on an airline recently found a frog in her salad. She called over the flight attendant and said _________."

Whoever filled in the blank the best won tickets to some concert. People started with French comments which are lame. The winner said something about Iraqi's, I couldn't make it out, but the DJ was laughing.

Yes I know richard....besides pacificblue don't serve meals...

What i ment was the different clientele... Pacificblue's are young backpackers, skiiers etc in partymood probably consuming a few. The QF flight was probably full of a much more sober crowd. Had it been the other flight, well, I am sure that frog wouldn't have made it off the plane alive.

Back in my Food Service working days at the College of St. Elizabeth in Convent Station, NJ a generation ago, we'd sometimes refer to this scenario as salad with MEAT, though only among us workers, NOT to the Sisters and students, of course. Big grin We never had any frogs but there was the occasional fly or cockroach mixed in with the lettuce. (That old place was a 'roach magnet, we could never eradicate the huge swarms of them we'd find) Hey, we were a low-budget food service, NOT a classy restaurant or diner!  Laugh out loud

I always knew Qantas was culturally competent. How wonderful it is they serve the freshest of frogleg sushi with their innovative in-flight meals!
