An air hostess was horrified to discover a snake's chopped off head had been served up in her in-flight meal.

The serpent surprise came onboard a SunExpress flight from Ankara, Turkey to Düsseldorf, Germany last Thursday, (July 21).

It was not until the cabin crew member had taken a few bites of their meal that they clocked the snake's head on their dish which they swiftly filmed as evidence.

It is not the first time that staff for the company, owned by both Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, have complained about unwanted additions to their food.

Previous claims include reports of beetles and even snails making their way into inflight dishes.

A SunExpress spokesman responded to the snake head allegation in a statement, saying: “It is our top priority that the services we provide to our guests on our aircraft are of the highest quality and that both our guests and employees have a comfortable and safe flight experience.

"The allegations and shares in the press regarding in-flight food service are absolutely unacceptable and a detailed investigation has been initiated on the subject."

They added: "Until the research process in question is concluded, all preventive measures and actions, including stopping the supply of the relevant product, have been taken immediately.”

The catering company SunExpress say they used for the journey from the Turkish capital is Sancak Inflight Services who claim it is impossible for the reptile to have come from their kitchen.

Explaining everything they prepare gets initially cooked at 280C, Sancak insists the head could not have survived in tact.

The company said: “SunExpress Airlines is a valuable client in our country and a popular airline in Europe, which recently decided to further expand its fleet and route network.

"They again announced a tender for catering services on board. We did not use any of the foreign objects that were supposedly in the food when cooking (due to the technical and thermal conditions used in the in-flight catering facilities).”
