In tears after the plane food error

In tears after the plane food error

Backpacker Chloe Chapdelaine, 25, from Calgary, Canada, had the “worst flight of her life” when she flew from Dubai to Los Angeles last Monday.

The flight takes about 15 hours. On the flight, Chloe, who has celiac disease, received breakfast. The tray was marked “gluten free”.

This is what the news agency Kennedy News and Media wrote.

– I have a bad feeling

On the tray was a hot plate, some fruit and some rolled croissants, which admittedly don’t have a “gluten free” label.

– When I ate the croissant, I felt really bad. It tastes so good, she told the news agency, I’ve never tasted such a gluten-free croissant before.

This made the 25-year-old doubt if it was actually gluten-free.

– I asked a flight attendant if it was actually gluten-free, she says – and continues:

– I turned pale and went to check. When she came back she told me the croissant should not have been on my tray and it wasn’t gluten free. I was completely shocked and started to panic.

– very scary

Chloe says that, as a result of celiac disease, she is very sensitive to gluten, and can even react to the effects of gluten or cross-contamination.

Celiac disease is a chronic autoimmune disease caused by a hypersensitivity to gluten, according to the pocket doctor. Those who suffer from celiac disease cannot eat foods that contain gluten, as this leads to inflammation of the intestines.

– Hearing I had half a croissant with gluten, which is actually quite a lot and a lot more than I’ve reacted to in the past, was really scary.

The 25-year-old shared a video of herself on TikTok, where she tearfully explains what happened. At the same time, she tries to ditch the croissant in an effort to reduce her gluten intake.

- I'm terrified

– I’m terrified

– If I hadn’t, my body would have done more damage. She felt other symptoms, too, and things got worse, she says.

Abdominal cramps and diarrhea

To Kennedy News, she explains why she reacted so strongly:

“I wasn’t upset because I broke a gluten-free diet, but because I knew I was going to have to deal with a number of symptoms in the following week,” she says.

She spent the next hour with her head hanging over the plane’s lavatory. For the rest of the trip, Chloe experienced nausea, stomach cramps and diarrhea.

She also claims to have experienced an itchy rash and psychological effects of what happened – including heart fog and depression.

According to Lommelegen, one in ten people with celiac disease develops an annoying rash called dermatitis herpetiformis.

– Not the first time

Chloe says she hasn’t eaten gluten in nearly nine years, ever since she was diagnosed with celiac disease.

– This isn’t the first time I’ve had problems with airplane food. The last time I happily realized it was before I ate, otherwise the same thing would have happened, she says.

Now the Canadian influencer is urging airlines to take food allergies and intolerances seriously. She claims that she often checked in for a flight only to find that the airline had forgotten her food.

– I feel that celiac disease is not taken as seriously as it is with a nut allergy. She says that people with allergies or intolerances deserve to feel safe and to be taken seriously, which isn’t always the case.

She confirmed that Emirates Airlines flight attendants showed sympathy for her. She filed a formal complaint with the airline but has not heard from them.

Kennedy News and Media has repeatedly tried to contact Emirates Airlines, but has not yet responded to inquiries.
