Off to Florida this week and it's around a 10 hr flight. Meal choices were gluten free, dairy free, plus a whole load of others. Being gluten and dairy intolerant I emailed the customer service people and asked for a gluten and dairy free meal. I also asked that it excluded the usual garlic spices and other things we know trigger us.
The. Reply was they do not cater for " medical" meals and to bring my own food!!
To say I'm stunned is an understatement - if I rock up to security with ready made gf and df sandwiches I'm worried they will make me throw in the bin!! Especially as USA will not allow cooked meats in the country ( i would have eaten them of course before then)
So I replied please arrange a dairy free meal ( dairy is my very weak spot) and I'll just leave what I can't eat!! I joked with my friend who I'm staying with I guess I'll just eat the little jelly then!!
I really expected much better service than that!!
So has anyone managed to get through security okay with food? I know for sure it's pretty unlikely there is gf and df food in the airport that would be easy to take on the plane!!!
