Airplane travel with PA AND Treenut Allergy
Our 3 1/2 and 2 year old sons have peanut, treenut (and possibly coconut) and shellfish allergies between the 2 of them.
I know certain airlines will accommodate a PA in terms of asking passengers to refrain from eating peanuts or making the flight peanut-free; however, it sort of seems that you are on your own with regard to treenut allergies.
I am very concerned about them touching airplane surfaces contaminated with peanut or treenut residue, even if the flight is peanut free.
The last thing I feel like doing is paying an extra $1000 to rent an RV for the week to drive to Florida, but I'd hate to have them miss out on ever going to Disney. Travel by car for 3 days is just not an option as my kids would be sick of their car seats within 3 hours.
But I can't imagine the nightmare it would be if both kids had reactions on the flight.
Has anyone dealt with PA AND treenut allergies and flown anywhere?
I read previous posts on the subject here but they looked like they pertained solely to PA and planes.
