"We have already made a number of exciting changes to our menu this year, and we are sure this brand new menu will delight customers even more."

The half-popped corn is even vegan, so if you dodge meat and dairy, you won't have to miss out on this delicious in-flight treat.

On the inclusion of vegan options, the spokesperson added: "the new in-flight menu is Jet2.com's biggest and best yet, with a number of new additions to give customers more choice and variety than ever.

Following the introduction of its first ever in-flight vegan meal earlier this year, the warming and hearty penne arrabbiata pasta dish, the company has added the vegan and gluten free "Gnaw" chocolate bar, with Nando's Half-popped Corn also suitable for vegans."

The snacks are available on all Jet2 flights now. What more of an excuse could you need to book your holiday?
