American Airlines

As of Dec. 2013, USAir and American Airlines have merged. Please see the policy below.

Per their website:

American recognizes that some passengers are allergic to peanuts and other tree nuts. Although we do not serve peanuts, we do serve other nut products (such as warmed nuts) and there may be trace elements of unspecified nut ingredients,including peanut oils, in meals and snacks. We do not have in place procedures that allow our flight crews not to serve these foods upon request of a customer. We do not provide nut “buffer zones”. Our planes are cleaned regularly, but these cleanings are not designed to ensure the removal of nut allergens, nor are our air filtration systems designed to remove nut allergens. Additionally, other customers may bring peanuts or other tree nuts on board. Therefore, we cannot guarantee customers will not be exposed to peanuts or other tree nuts during flight, and we strongly encourage customers to take all necessary medical precautions to prepare for the possibility of exposure.

    Excellent site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any user discussion forums that
    cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really like to be a
    part of community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that share the
    same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Cheers!

    I just recently flew from dtw to Phx and your flight attendant told me that you serve peanuts to first class with their drinks. Well first of all I have a severe peanut allergy where I can not smell peanuts or my throat will close and I will pass out. I wear a mask that’s reads severe peanut allergy, take Benadryl before they flight and carry a epi pen and an inhaler. Some of your flight attendants will announce for me to the rest of the customers that i have an allergy and they and I would appreciate it if they didn’t eat anything peanut. Then I get the one who won’t do that for me. So I get on the flight to travel to see my family, taking the chance I get a nice flight attendant that understands the severity of my allergy and how dangerous it can be. I wish all airlines would please reconsider this instead of me getting anxiety o. The plan that I may die if someone eats peanuts. It’s simple. Schools are peanut free
