Man's gluten-free meal on his 9-hour flight leaves a lot to be desiredThe airlines are at it again, folks.

"This was a nine-hour flight. Although definitely gluten free, the banana did not keep me full for very long. At the price I paid, you would expect something more than that." The banana was also served with a knife and fork, which is apparently how one eats a banana.  “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," he told the Standard. “On this flight, I was left literally speechless." So if you're gluten-free and flying All Nippon Airways, remember to pack your own meal.
