Today I launched The No Nut Traveler. This is a website dedicated to all the people who have food allergies and wish to fly on commercial airlines.
On our website you can share your experiences with airlines so we can build a database of support, write your legislator and file a complaint with the DOT (Department of Transportation).
Please log on, take a look, and share your stories if applicable and forward to your family and friends.
Children and Adults with food allergies should be able to report their allergy without fear of being kicked off the flight. As it stands, they have no such rights and cases have been reported of people being taken off a flight for reporting a food allergy. In addition, it should be standard that, once informed, the crew create a buffer zone at least three rows in front and three rows behind the allergic person. The crew member should ask customers seated in the buffer zone to refrain from consuming any nut containing products that they have brought onboard and the crew will not serve any nut containing products to these rows. As it stands, there are no federal guidelines to protect this growing population of consumers. Therefore different flight crews on the same airlines will react differently to a food allergy request. This makes flying even more stressful and dangerous for the child or adult with an anaphylactic allergy.
