In future batches of this recipe you can add carapils dextrine malt (maybe 4-8oz / 5gal) to the specialty grain bill, maltodextrin (up to 8oz / 5gal) and/or a heading agent, though heading agents tend to change the flavor of the beer. Now that it's in the bottle, however, I'm not sure there's much you can do.
Great points. It could also be that your glasses have a soap film on them, this can happen if you put them in the dishwasher.
I think it's important to distinguish between "no carbonation" and "no head,"
