Dr Jane Lucas, a respiratory and allergy specialist at Southampton General Hospital, said flights were a particular danger to sufferers due to inconsistent information provided by companies and called on them to take responsibility for their customers.

She spoke out following a study, published in the journal Clinical and Translational Allergy, which looked at the experiences of 32 patients with a nut or peanut allergy and how they coped with travel.

Among the responses were reports of how a crew member stroked a passenger's arm in comfort and said "poor you" after they had explained people were not to eat nuts around them. Another gave a customer a walnut salad after they had informed them of an allergy.
