Re: People with Peanut / Tree Nut Allergies Can Minimize Risk of Reactions on Airplane Flights

Bea ·
I just wanted to add that I just booked a flight from the USA to Europe with KLM (Dutch Airline) operated by Delta. After purchasing our tickets I called up Delta to notify them about my 3 years old son's peanut/tree nut and dog allergies and I asked what their policy was to accomodate us. Just like on Air Canada, they ensured me they will create a 3-row buffer zone in front and behind us. They will not serve any nuts to these passengers. Good to know!

In addition to taking common-sense precautions and increasing communication with flight crew during reactions, the study also seems to reinforce another critical need: to educate allergic individuals and their families/caregivers more effectively around how and when to use the EpiPen. Underutilization of EpiPen is not only a problem in the air, but also on the ground. Education can reduce anxiety (i.e. by shifting some of the focus from the problem onto a "solution") and lead to more...

Southwest allows early boarding for airborne peanut allergies- enough time for you to go and wipe down the seats and trays before everyone else gets on. They also avoid actually serving peanuts on the flight- they gave cookies and crackers instead.

What about allergic reaction due to airborne peanut protein? The Epipen works for a short duration until emergency room medical treatment can be given. What is your opinion for a long flight?

Re: People with Peanut / Tree Nut Allergies Can Minimize Risk of Reactions on Airplane Flights

Hi Francine. In our case, our allergist told us always carry 2 Epipens at all times - every day. When we fly, we are supposed to carry 3 Epipens, Benadryl, and liquid Prednisone (steroids). In the event of an in-air anaphylaxis we were directed to give our son his Epipen and wait a few minutes. If he was recovering, we were to give him his first dose of steroids (since that is what he'd do if we came to the ER after giving the Epipen). In the event the first Epipen didn't resolve the...

In addition, I highly recommend checking out pages 62-64 of "Food Allergy for Dummies" by Dr. Wood. It speaks exactly to what you are asking. You can read it online at Google Books (linked below).

Hi Francine, A good approach would be for you to discuss this with your child's allergist in advance of the plane trip and see if your child's emergency care plan needs to be updated for the flight and the trip away from home. You might need to carry more epinephrine autoinjectors, for instance, based upon what your allergist will recommend.

I would recommend wiping down the whole seating area, not just the tray table. I would also bring all my own food. I think it is great if airlines are offering peanut or nut-free flights but I think there 35,000 feet isn't where I would want to find they made any type of mistake. I think researching which airlines will and will not make announcements, grant buffer zones, do or do not serve peanuts, nuts, etc is also a good idea. Some airlines are accommodating and some are not and which is...

Thank you doctors for posting this. I have wondered what I could've, should've, or would've done better, different, or something. Beating myself up over it doesn't change anything. I know all those parents out there with severely peanut allergic children did not do everything the same. I actually think it would've been a lot more difficult to watch my infant have an anaphylactic reaction than my 2 year old. At least she could talk to me.

A free press is not free to lie, mislead, and over-hype and it is high time to hold them accountable for all the damage they are doing to kids with allergies and society in general. The press is hugely irresponsible in how they report scientific findings. Science is slow, particular, and often very inconclusive. How many kids are going to DIE because of irresponsible reporting?! We have ongoing battle with family members and school administrators who deep in their hearts believe this is our...

I wish this could have applied to my children. My 4yo boy tested highly positive to peanuts at 6 months of age, so he would have been deemed too high risk to participate, anyway. And then there's my daughter, who has FPIES and still hasn't gotten around to trying peanuts. Now I'm terrified that the extremely slow process of introducing food into her diet means I've already missed my window of early prevention. She's definitely high risk for developing a peanut allergy since she has a sibling...
