According to FAN, United Airlines is the only airline to be consistantly peanut-free. I just recently flew on United with my pa daughter. When making my reservartions I mentioned her situation and then again when purchasing the tickets. It wasn't until we got to the gate when I asked to board early did I get a hard time. The woman (unfortunatley I did not get her name to write her supervisior) behind the counter wanted to know why I wanted early boarding. I explainded my child's pa and the importance of wiping down the seats, window and trays for what other passengers may have brought in with them. The United rep then said my family of 4 could not board the plane as we were a liability! I about had a heart attack! I asked to speak with her supervisor whom she then called. She told me I should have contaced their medical deprtment for special authorization to fly! Never mentioned to me before! Anyway to make a long sory short they did finally let us get on after much persuasion and stress. I was so upset. On the return flight we boarded early without asking! No peanuts were served and my daughter was fine.
