People with peanut/tree nut allergies can minimize risk of reactions on airplane flights

Quote:
But in a new study, published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology-In Practice, researchers found passengers who engaged in eight mitigating factors were less likely to report an allergic reaction.


Passengers with peanut/tree nut allergies who reported taking these actions had significantly lower odds of reporting a reaction:

(1) requesting any accommodation

(2) requesting a peanut/tree nut-free meal

(3) wiping their tray table with a commercial wipe

(4) avoiding use of airline pillows

(5) avoiding use of airline blankets

(6) requesting a peanut/tree nut-free buffer zone

(7) requesting other passengers not consume peanut/tree nut-containing products

(8) not consuming airline-provided food.[/quote]

Thank you for sharing this link. The one that had never crossed our minds was the blanket and pillow for a long flight.

Air Canada does not have any meals that are safe for tree nut or peanut allergies.
