As some of you know, last year my family was escorted off of a flight to visit relatives in Mexico because of our son's peanut allergy. (See the posts by Matthew and myself in the airline discussion.)

We were unable to find any airline which would fly us to our destination and would agree not to serve peanuts en route.

We have filed a complaint with the FAA.

We are now planning to file a complaint against the airline in federal court. We have filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Any information you all have with respect to airborne allergic reactions would be most welcome. The airline will no doubt be able to hire expert witnesses to try and refute our claim. We need your stories, your science, and, if you can spare it, donations for the costs that will be involved.

In talking with USDOT, they said that they'd been threatened during the appropriations process by the peanut lobby.

It's maddening that those of us dealing with PA are left behind when it comes to air travel.
