American Airlines serves GF food on international flights
Recently, I had the opportunity to experience American Airlines' international flight service on my way from San Diego to Manchester, England. I was in coach and those seats seem to have gotten smaller and smaller. And the plane was so old that it still had ashtrays (covered over) and only one television for the whole seating section. However, the bright spot in this experience was the gluten-free food. I had to order it ahead of time, but it was worth it. I was always served first and the meals were good. There were plenty of vegetables and salad and typically I got fruit instead of the usual dessert, which was fine with me. They even gave me a gluten-free bread roll with cheese! That's more than you get in a lot of restaurants that serve gluten-free food. In other words, fly American for the food, not the ambience.
