Airplane Food – SYD-MEL-HBA return on Qantas

Time to show off the GFML (Gluten Intollerence) meals offered in economy on Qantas domestic.

Heading down to Hobart I got two breakfasts, the row to myself on both flights, and evidence as to how old the Qantas domestic Boeing fleet is…

Ash tray in the loo shows the age of the plane, as Smoking aboard Australian domestic aircraft was banned on 1 December 1987!

My first glimpse of Tasmania. I only get window seats. On the left side of the plane.

On the return flights, there was a ‘snack’ (a second lunch for the special meals)

A roast vege sandwich. No banana for me, though the normal meals had bananas.

And lamb for dinner

All quite edible :)

Gluten Free on Qantas Domestic SYD-MEL

Until the Digital Parents Conference, I’d never flown between Sydney and Melbourne. Plenty of flights from Canberra to Melbourne, but never had I done the Sydney route. (I’ll be flying to Melbourne again in a week, too! This time on Virgin for the Global Atheist Convention!)

Two dinner time flights, the first delayed by half an hour, because the flight after mine was cancelled and they packed as many people onto our plane as they could. Which meant they were undercatered. No issues for me though! ;)

A nice lamb curry and a gluten free muffin were served. Lovely! :) And in the exit row, too! ;)

The return meal was a little plainer… fish in a tomato and caper sauce, sultanas and a banana.

The fish was quite good, not too “fishy” and the potatoes went down well. I skipped out on the overdone beans, as you do! :p

Nice to have some nice, simple foods, and not be weighed down by the pasta that seems to be the regular meal of choice.

I could write about…

The gluten free meal I had on the plane home from Melbourne last night:

The 5:15am WAKE UP CALL we all got Saturday morning at The Oaks on Market. All 4 rooms of our group. Something wrong there.

Or I could just write a few sentences and post some photos. You all cool with that?
