First Class Gluten Free Meal On Delta
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I wanted to post my experience ordering a gluten free meal while flying first class on Delta this past week. I had read in a couple of places that the first class gluten-free meal is the same as the economy class gluten-free meal, and wanted to correct that. It is not the same meal. It's actually pretty good, in fact, and I'm really happy I ordered it.

First flight was from Detroit to L.A. They said they didn't get my order in time, so I think I just ate the salad. No big deal. I'd also brought some Kind bars from home, and I made it to L.A. just fine.

Second flight was from L.A. to Tokyo. The pursuer came over to tell me they had a special meal for me. First course was a bowl of fruit, a rice cake, and a plate of lentil salad, two shrimp, and some fire-roasted corn. It was good. Next came a huge salad with a balsamic vinagrette, cucumbers, tomato, and pine nuts. Also very good. The main course was a plain chicken breast, rice and some mushy frozen veggies. Not as good as the other two courses, but totally edible and I could've eaten the whole thing if I was really hungry.

Breakfast was an omlette with spinach, an Udi's bagel and more fruit.

The trip home was similar. A better meal on the intercontinental than on the domestic, but still totally serviceable. First course was a little salad, fruit, and some kind of tomato soup. Everyone else got a second course with a big salad, and the airline steward realized it was gluten free, so he asked if I wanted one. I did, and it was good. Entree was another chicken breast, this time with Italian spices, some rice, and I think asparagus.

Breakfast was another spinach omlette (which was edible, but not very tasty), an Udi's muffin, and a ton of fruit.

Anyway, it's airline food, so I wasn't expecting much. So I was very pleasantly surprised. And happy that work splurged on the first class ticket for such a long trip, because it meant I got to eat pretty well!

I, too, had a good experience with Delta international. But, I must say Alitalia was the best. They served some Sharr products that I have never seen in the States. And, another advantage is that you get served first. We're special. :D

That's funny, because I just flew Alitalia from Rome to Amsterdam, and it was horrible! LOL. But my suitcase was packed full of Scharr products, so I shouldn't complain. :)

    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!  
    • I am sorry too.  I did not mean to imply that you have a sugar issue (though it may contribute to our obesity problem, but that is another debate).  I do not think that is the cause of your symptoms.  I brought it up because the American Academy of Pediatrics just issued this on juice for infants, toddlers and adolescents: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2017/05/18/peds.2017-0967 We all have unique intolerances.  My kid can not drink orange juice beyond a 1/2 cup.  That is about the equivalent of two oranges.  Too much juice and she gets an allergic reaction -- itchy hives all over her body.  Yet, she can eat two oranges in her lunch everyday -- just not a full cup of orange juice, processed or fresh.   Me?  I tolerate it just fine, if only I could tolerate garlic!!!!!! i hope you feel better soon.
