Only one problem. I am coeliac and was not provided with a meal like everyone else was. The air hostess was lovely and found me an apple, a biscuit and 2 packets of delights. Can I suggest that there be a gluten free meal provided just in case there is someone on board who is unable to eat any gluten? The dietary question was not asked when we booked thru Wotif.
