Singapore Airlines Gluten Free Food
Singapore Airlines, in my view, have always rocked anyway. But I haven't travelled with them since I was diagnosed. My husband and I have lived in Australia for nearly a decade now, but are originally from Belfast and Reading (UK) and I still have (at the moment) 3 out of 4 of my Grandparents alive, so I figured a trip to the UK with our little girl, Lucy, was in order before it was too late.
We always travel with Singapore Airlines - the service, cleanliness, efficiency etc have always been fab. And I was not disappointed with my gluten free options. Firstly, I got served first, with my little one who got her kids meal. This allowed me to eat with her, while my Hubby supervised Lucy's messy eating!
On the first leg I got fillet steak, potatoes, and yummy veggies in a tomato sauce. They had rice cakes instead of bread, a yummy gluten free cake for dessert - it was fab. On the way back from the UK I had scrambled eggs, a gluten free roll (which was so yummy), chicken casserole - I think my fellow passengers were jealous.
The only thing that let them down was there were no gluten free snacks in between meals available. Normally that would be fine, but I was 10 weeks pregnant and needing to eat all sorts of things, all the time, to keep nausea at bay. But I went prepared, so was lucky.
I would highly recommend travelling wtih Singapore Airlines - their attention to detail in the gluten free meals as fantastic. As for Qantas here in Australia - hmmm, I'll save that for another post!
