China Air

Hi has anyone flown China Air? Wondering what it was like and if gluten-free meals were a problem or not. Also having to spend a night in Taipei-would love any tips for gluten-free eating there

thanks

I've flown China Air but not since gluten-free, I know that Korean Air doesn't offer gluten-free options.


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).

10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels

I don't remember a gluten-free option on China Airlines but I only fly the Tokyo - Taipei route. They may offer something on their flights originating in the States.

Taipei is a great city. There is a Japanese restaurant in the Westin and the Grand Hotel has a sahsimi plate on the menu. I think the Hyatt has a French restaurant but I haven't eaten there so I can't vouch for it's gluten-free friendliness. I highly recommend afternoon Tea at the Grand Hotel. The mall at Taipei 101 has options you just have to dig for them.

I would take a set of dining cards in Mandarin because english is not overly prominent there.
