With the holidays coming up, you might be in the market for some airplane tickets.
I thought I'd take the time to pull together links to the allergen (aka 'peanut') policies for some of the major airlines (you may have to scroll down the page in the link to get to the peanut policy):
(their policy sucks the most of all airlines I think)
(their policy comes in second in suckage factor)
(theirs comes in third I think)
Air France: Couldn't find a policy online
Lufthansa: Couldn't find a policy online
You really have to scroll down the page to learn that they sell peanuts on their flights. But if you give them advance notice, they say they will try to prevent the sale on your flight.
And just for good measure, I found a small tidbit on Amtrak (scroll down to the bottom or do a page find for 'allergies'). Basically, if your child has a life threatening food allergy, they can't travel alone on Amtrak (I can't imagine EVER sending B on a trip by herself with PA, but that's another post).
Most have the "we can't control what other people bring on the flight" disclaimer, but isn't it great to see so many that say that they don't serve peanuts or products containing peanuts? I love it!! You should have a pretty good choice of safe(r) airlines if you have a peanut allergy and are choosing air travel this holiday season or otherwise.
Did I miss anyone? Leave me a comment and I'll add it to the list!
