A passenger on a flight from Tokyo to Sydney is appalled after being given just a single banana as his "gluten-free breakfast."

Englishman Martin Pavelka claims he was on a flight with Japanese airline All Nippon Airways when he was given a single banana as his breakfast which even came with a knife, fork and salt.

Mr Pavelka told the Telegraph the fruitful  breakfast came with a sticker attached showing it was a gluten-free "meal" and even had his seat number written on it.

"All other passengers were served a full breakfast meal consisting of eggs, sausage, mushrooms, bread, and yogurt," he said.

"This was a nine-hour flight. Although definitely gluten-free, the banana did not keep me full for very long."

Mr Pavelka has since laid a hangry complaint to the airline who have yet to respond.
