Dear AllergySafeTravel Supporter:
We are creating a newsletter that will be distributed to top airline executives and government officials at the Department of Transportation and the White House. This newsletter is intended to gain greater buy-in from airlines for making accommodations for severe food allergy sufferers, especially those with peanut and tree nut allergies whose health can be put at risk during flights.
In each edition, we will be highlighting airline passengers’ flying experiences, both the good and bad, and recognizing flight crew members who have gone out of their way to protect flyers with allergies, among other things. This is where we need your help. If you have a flying experience you would like to share, or you would like to recognize a crew member, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can remember the crew member’s name and/or have a photo you would like to share, that would be great. If not, even if you can only recall the carrier and flight number and can relate the experience, that would be most helpful. While we will recognize those flight crew members by name that performed exceptionally (with your permission) , we will not use the names of crew members that failed to make the effort. That is not our intention.
We will be collecting these stories on an ongoing basis, so please let us know how your flying experience is. Our first issue will be released Summer 2015.
Our hope is that airline executives will come to realize how accommodations can make a huge difference in support of an airline and its brand.
By helping our cause, you are helping to upgrade the safety of flights for your family.
Thank you for your continued support.
