As far as seat allocations I think Jetstar is making its own mess here which it will need to handle when you all check in. That's their problem, not yours. Getting a gluten-free meal is very much 'your problem' however so I would get pro-active and jump on Twitter to Jetstar, social media tends to get better response times these days compared to the usual 'customer service' channels. If you don't hear back from them I would suggest bringing along your own prepared gluten-free meals just in case, because economy GF-meals are only loaded based on requests and demand. It would be a shame to have to bring your own GF meals and snacks but this way you're covered and you can always lodge a claim to JQ for some form of reimbursement because you had to BYO. But first things first, get onto Twitter.

Friends of mine took the CNS service a short while ago and had the same experience, their daughter has a peanut allergy, couldn’t get any response at all from JQ and ended up taking their own food for her, funny thing was once they got to Japan they had a small card written in Japanese saying their daughter has a peanut allergy, not an issue and everywhere they went were very helpful.
Thanks for the responses. Have tried twitter (had to create an account and join the 21st century!) so will see how that goes. I was never expecting a real business class experience from JQ but no solutions for medical food conditions is even below my economy expectations.

I would second the social media option. Try Jetstar Facebook page.
