Man's gluten free airline meal request met with a single banana

Martin Pavelk pre-ordered a gluten-free breakfast for his All Nippon Airways flight from Tokyo to Sydney, Australia. He was served a single banana, a packet of salt, and a knife and fork.

“All other passengers were served a full breakfast meal consisting of eggs, sausage, mushrooms, bread, and yogurt,” Pavelk said. “This was a nine-hour flight. Although definitely gluten-free, the banana did not keep me full for very long.”

All Nippon Airways told The Telegraph that they have since "apologized to him personally and as a result of his experience we are reviewing our policy on gluten free options and how they are served.” Read the rest

China bans seductive eating of bananas

It's presumably OK to eat a banana in a seductive fashion in China. But the official word is out that live-streaming the act is now forbidden.

The move is the authorities' latest attempt to clamp down on "inappropriate and erotic" online content. In April, the Ministry of Culture announced it was investigating a number of popular live-streaming platforms for allegedly hosting pornographic or violent content that "harms social morality". News of the banana ban has prompted thousands of users to chime in on Chinese social media.
