In fact, he looked for a way to get around the rule established by the company Easy Jet. The man remembered that it was allowed to take off his mask to eat or quench his thirst. So he decided to eat for the entire flight.

The man himself was surprised to have managed to keep a packet of Pringles all this time.”It’s a Pringles every two and a half minutes “, he wrote in the caption of a photo of him and the said packet of Pringles ..
