Airline food is hardly a culinary highlight.
But passengers on commercial carrier Tunisair were left starving when turbulence hit just seconds after crew served the evening meal.
Images shared via Twitter on Thursday show how lunch trays were launched into the aisles after the friendly skies turned bumpy.

The chartered flight was travelling from Tunis International Airport, Tunisia, to Paris Orly Airport, France, when the incident happened.
Although it's believed no passengers were hurt during the episode, it was certainly powerful enough to overturn trays weighted with full meals, drinks and cutlery.
The photographs - taken by a quick-thinking passenger - show a number of edible items strewn across the walkway, including bread and packaged goods.
Meanwhile, trays littered the walkway and up-turned cups balanced precariously.
Clearly feeling hungry, one woman can be seen reaching out to retrieve her meal, while others hold the neighbouring seats to steady their journey.
MailOnline have approached Tunisair for comment, but are yet to receive a response.

Not that the airline haven't previously made headlines, of course.
In March 2017 they stranded passengers for hours when a dispute over staff uniforms grounded their flights.
The carrier later announced a 'partial and progressive' resumption of flights after talks with trade union representatives.
Tunisair has 29 aircraft that usually operate an average of 47 flights a day to destinations mostly in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, according to its website.
