Coffee, tea, or maggots? That's the unpleasant dining option several passengers discovered on a recent Qantas flight from Los Angeles to Melbourne, reports the New York Daily News. Victoria Cleven says she was eating snack mix when she noticed something wrong, "like hair or something over my mouth," she said. When she turned on the light, she found maggots in the bag of snack mix. Her son found maggots in two more packs of mix, so she filmed the gross concoction and put the video on YouTube. Qantas refunded one-quarter of the cost of her ticket and says it is looking into the incident. (More Qantas stories.)
