Alitalia Serves Gluten-Free Meal Option

Posted Oct 14 2009 10:02pm


Greetings from Italy!  In case you were wondering where I have been recently, I am on vacation in Calabria.  Curinga to be exact.  If you follow my other blog, Carmelo Orlando, you know that I am doing geneology research on my grandfather’s side of the family.

With this post, I would like to report that it has been very easy to eat gluten-free in Italy.  It was also very easy to eat on the plane!  I don’t know what other airlines are like, but Alitalia had a gluten-free meal option.  I didn’t know about it until I heard the steward speaking to a passenger behind me.  He was confirming that the passenger would be eating “senza glutine”.  When I heard him say “senza glutine”, I flagged him down and asked if I could also have a gluten-free dinner.  No problem what so ever!

Was the food good?  Ehh… it was typical airplane food.  The good part was that I got served before everyone else and I probably ate better than the rest. 

My hats go off to Alitalia for making my flight over to Rome and very good one!  Molto grazie a Alitalia!
