A pilot in Pakistan delayed a flight because he wanted the passengers on board to have sandwiches -- yes, you read that right. The flight was scheduled to fly from Pakistan to New York and the pilot was unhappy when he learned that the subs he wanted were not part of the flight's menu. He delayed the flight for over 2 hours and went back and forth with a caterer... and eventually? He got sandwiches for the flight.
While the pilot was happy that his demands were met, an investigation has been launched. According to the report, the pilot was allowed to fly to New York on that particular flight (and he likely enjoyed a sandwich or two) but he may face disciplinary action.
Food on a flight must be pre-approved and the pilot caused quite a problem over sandwiches -- so it's no wonder that an investigation is taking place... those must have been some great subs.
