British Airways Tackles Peanut Allergies With New In-Flight Announcement

According to Forbes magazine, British Airways is the first international airline to request that passengers do not eat food items containing peanuts if they are seated next to a passenger with a peanut allergy.

The policy is set to be enforced from this Thursday (18th February) and will be made known to passengers via a new in-flight announcement.

If you're travelling via British Airways with someone who has a nut allergy, you can make this known to airline staff who will ensure the relevant in-flight announcement is made.

This must have the potential to make a big difference to families of little ones with peanut allergies when it comes to travelling by plane, and I imagine that other airlines will follow suit.

We'd love to hear your views on this story. If you have a peanut allergy sufferer in the family, would this persuade you to fly with British Airways? Or do you think the policy might be un-enforceable in practical terms? Come and share your views over on our Facebook page.
