Martin Pavelka ordered a gluten-free meal (GFML) on board his nine-hour ANA All Nippon Airways flight between Tokyo and Sydney, he was expecting a big plate with a gluten-free option, but he received a single banana.
He told the Standard: “As a coeliac, I always order gluten free meal on my flights. Sometimes they are bland, sometimes they are actually much better than the ordinary meal service.
“On this flight, I was left literally speechless. One single banana arrived.
“All other passengers were served full breakfast meal consisting of eggs, sausage, mushrooms, bread, and yogurt.
“This was a nine-hour flight. Although definitely gluten free, the banana did not keep me full for very long.”
