This was their thoughts on nut allergies and airplanes a year ago:
Should nut allergy sufferers be allowed to fly? Health experts and campaigners debate how risky the condition REALLY is on an aircraft

A bag of peanuts with a G&T is a tradition on a flight ...if you are "allergic" take a boat instead

I can see no reason why a plane load of 300+ passengers should have to refrain from eating their choice of snack because 1 person (who should be carrying an epipen or similar) has a reaction to them.I have a problem with perfumes and deodorants and I can have and have had a very distressing asthma episode when flying so I always carry my inhaler and a spare, I dont expect everyone else on the plane to rock the au-naturel body smell just because of my problem.

My son was disabled when he was a child and many times we did not do things or go places because it was a burden for others. I'm sick and tired of everyone having to accommodate all of these "special" people. The child' needs are his/her parents problem and it is up to the parents to figure out how to accommodate their child. It is not up to the rest of society to feel sorry for you and treat you like the victim you really want to be. If that is too harsh for some people and they want to red arrow me, so be it. I lived it. Being a victim is a bad option.

So basicly we cannot eat nuts anywhere,ie cinema, street, restaurant, bus, I wonder if these nut allergy people think of other people's allergies.
