Family kicked off flight after pilot refuses to accommodate peanut allergy

I'm with the airline on this one. If you are so fucking allergic, stay home. Also, that's a very old looking 12 yo.

Their flying would have created 1) extreme risk for the girl 2) very high liability risk for the airline.

Throw them off.

I don't know the correct solution for the girl. Will she / can she survive with medicine if there is a contamination? If not, she may be limited to travel by private car.

There's a treatment to reduce the severity of reaction called Palforzia. It's probably expensive. One reason we may not have seen so many peanut allergies years ago is that the recommendation to remove the allergens from the diet is fairly recent (and wrong). Turns out early exposure often helps prevent the allergy from developing.

It said they flew with easyJet the next day who were able to accommodate them just fine. Seems like the pilot was scared of a midair incident.

To be honest, I don't see why they can't just make planes nut free. It eliminates the risk for those who have life threatening allergies and I'm sure everyone else can live without a packet of peanuts or a Snickers bar for a few hours.

It's fine and easy for the airlines not to SERVE nuts. I believe the issue is gaining common agreement among all passengers that they may not consume their own nuts (so to speak). It's very difficult to get people all on board for any restriction, and also some passengers will be cunts or stupid.

It’s reasonable for the plane not to knowingly Serve nuts; but is the pilot really going to tell everyone who purchased their own food for a four hour flight not to eat it on the off chance it contains an allergen?

Meals passengers purchased at the airport may contain nut-based products (spreads, bagels with seeds, etc). The article mentions one kid who died in flight because she ate a baguette that they didn’t realize contained sesame seeds.

I had a friend who was allergic to peanuts - it was pretty rare, back then (he was an adult already when I met him). It was a severe allergy.

One theory is farming methods, or soil toxins.

When I was a kid there were peanut vendors in public parks, bags of peanuts sold at ball games, in bowls on bars, everywhere.

[quote] GMO is causing proteins to be higher and more reactive

I don’t know why peanut allergies are so common now but it’s not, as R16 suggests, because peanuts are genetically modified. While there maybe be GMO peanuts being created in labs, no genetically modified peanut is being grown anywhere in the world for food production.

While I agree it’s not legal currently to ban people from bringing nuts on the plane, it’s absolutely possible. Lots of things are not allowed in planes which are ostensibly less dangerous and more common in our normal daily environment, like bottles of shampoo or mouthwash large enough for more than a single use.

The main problem here is that the parents apparently thought they could just show up and ask for this accommodation. You’d think they’d on ahead a bit better.

They obviously let this girl run wild because they allow her to walk around like a painted harlot before shes even in her teens.

[quote]R122: Where the fuck did peanut allergies come from? Nobody ever heard of this until about 15 or 20 years ago.

I heard of it in the early 1970s, but it wasn't common. From a historic standpoint, it has apparently occurred wherever there's been peanuts.

What happened twenty or so years ago was that pediatricians and dietary experts started advocating a waiting period of a few years before infants and toddlers were exposed to peanuts, thinking that lack of exposure would keep them from developing the allergy. Instead, this had the opposite effect, making the peanut allergy much more common. So there was an explosion in the instances of peanut allergies.

All things being equal, though, there will always be a certain 𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑦 𝑠𝑚𝑎𝑙𝑙 percentage of kids that are allergic to peanuts. But it's something that should be discovered about kids early, and infants/toddlers generally should not be shielded from all exposure to peanuts.

Despite its name, a peanut is not a nut; rather, it is a legume.

you are supposed to feed babies spoonfuls of peanut butter so they won't become allergic. When I was a kid in the 50s every kid ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Peanuts are legumes and are in the same family as beans, lentils, and peas.

It happens to be the current medical consensus on how to prevent the development of the peanut allergy.

The more things kids are exposed to as children the less likely they will become allergic. I ate dirt all the time and ended up with a very strong immune system. My mom tried to get me sick with all the childhood diseases but to my great disappointment, I never got any of them and couldn't spend two weeks at home and not in school. I have barely ever gotten sick in my life and even to this day. I am 74. And only cataract surgery.

I understand that infants who are exposed to pets from birth rarely develop allergic reactions to most animals.

Worked for a sales group years ago & one of the other guys, son had a peanut allergy. My 1st day, he pulls me aside & asked if I could refrain from bringing peanuts or anything containing nuts into the office as he could become "contaminated" & take something home that could kill his son. He said even shaking someone's hand after they ate a peanut could be enough to kill his son...... He was a little crazy & left soon after I started. It's been 15 years & his son is married & doing well. I thought he'd be dead.......

The proper way to accommodate their worries (and get to be a total cunt in the process) would be to say, "We'll be happy to make an announcement. Unfortunately, there's no guarantee that people weren't eating peanuts on the previous flight and due to the SEVERITY of your daughter's allergy, we're not comfortable taking chances with her health. Let's go back to the gate where we can refund your tickets and help you find accommodations on another carrier."
