Airlines are the 'hot' topic these days for the obvious reasons. From the pee-gate incident to infamous fights, from stones served in food to passengers mistreating cabin crew, a lot has happened recently, and flights have never generated more waves. Unusual incidents occurred, prompting people to question the quality of travel that airlines are known for. In a bizarre incident, Indigo Airlines is trending on Twitter for referring to the popular Indian breakfast meal poha as a fresh salad. They are receiving heavy trolling from internet users for their blunder.

On January 28, the airlines took to their official Twitter account and shared a post about fresh salads that are served onboard. However, the picture in the post showed a bowl of poha. It also showed someone squeezing a lemon on top. The caption read, "Salads that are prepared and served on the same day, do try them. You’ll toss everything else away."

The post immediately drew a lot of attention on the internet. Netizens flocked to the comment section to react to it. One user wrote, "If you are talking to Indians, by no measure this is a salad- it's "poha". You used to sell "upma"/ "poha" ready to eat versions by mixing boiling water so far; perhaps this version is freshly prepared poha with lime juice. It's not salad  @IndiGo6E. Please get your facts correct."

Another user commented, "Looks like @IndiGo6E made a delicious mistake, trading salads for poha! Bon appetit."

A third user wrote, "Never realised we in Bombay used to eat so much salad every morning."
