Passenger asks for gluten-free breakfast, gets handed a ripe banana

An airline apologized Thursday after one of its passengers on an international flight requested a gluten-free breakfast and was handed a banana.

Martin Pavelka, who reportedly suffers  from celiac disease, told The Evening Standard newspaper that other passengers on the 9-hour flight from Tokyo to Sydney were feasting on full breakfasts with eggs, mushrooms and sausages.

“Although definitely gluten-free, the banana did not keep me full for very long,” he said.

All Nippon Airways said it will review its gluten-free meals. ANA apologized, but said that all passengers were handed a snack at the time.

“To imply that ANA only serves a banana for a flight of this length is incorrect,” the spokesman said.
