On a flight from Tokyo to Sydney, Martin Pavelka ordered gluten free meals. For breakfast, other passengers got sausage, eggs and bread. Pavelka got a banana along with a knife, fork and some salt.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Most of the time, eating airplane food is less than satisfying. That was never more true than for one passenger flying All Nippon Airways from Tokyo to Sydney. Martin Pavelka had ordered gluten-free meals. But when breakfast came around, the other passengers got sausage, eggs and bread. Pavelka got a single banana along with a packet with a knife, a fork and some salt, obviously. He complained. And All Nippon says it's reviewing its gluten-free options. It's MORNING EDITION.
