Delta Flights Served Needle Sandwiches

Passenger placed on HIV drugs


Delta airline passenger James Tonges, who bit into an in-flight sandwich containing a one-inch-long needle this week, has been placed on the antiretroviral drug Truvada, used for the treatment of HIV. “Since it punctured the top of my mouth, I had to be put on medication, and we’re waiting to see if there’s any type of substance on the needle,” said Tonges. Tonges was one of several passengers aboard four Delta flights who discovered a sewing needle in his sandwich. All of the needle-laced sandwiches were prepared by Gate Gourmet at the Schiphol airport in the Netherlands. The company operates in 28 countries serving over 300 million passengers annually. The FBI is now investigating the incidents as criminal cases.
