I’m not sure the DOT’s recent reversal will mean the cause of banning peanuts is dead. Far from it. The allergy sufferers and their parents are likely to lobby the government until it does something about peanuts. So at some point, we’ll have to decide whether planes should go peanut-free.
Do you suffer from peanut allergies? If so, how do you travel by air? Do you think mandating that airlines carry Epipen autoinjectors is an acceptable “middle ground” in this debate — or should the nuts be tossed altogether.
And to those of you who enjoy snacking on cashews, almonds and peanuts in-flight (full disclosure: I am one of them) — would you mind giving up your nuts when you fly?
Please take the survey or leave a comment with your opinion. Keep it clean, folks.
