We are in the process of determining the best way to get to Disney World from Toronto in the summer with my PA son. We want to fly first class since I have the most active 3 year old on the planet and he'll need his space, plus if we're lucky enough to get the newer planes they have much more leg space and a TV at each seat that plays different movies.

We've looked into Air Canada and it is very expensive (plus they serve nuts in first class, and I know this first hand because we flew first class to Barbados in November via Air Canada).
Air Transat is much cheaper but I have no idea about their allergy awareness. Our travel agent is looking into it and I will be calling as well, but I was wondering if any of you have travelled with them and have any recent information?

Thanks in advance,
Rita

Hi Rita,
My husband recently flew Air Canada (first class). They did not serve peanuts. They served sesame snacks.

Anne Marie,
Air Canada tends to serve the sesame sticks in first class when they run out of nuts (I asked), since that is what they serve to the rest of the passengers. The other reason may be that someone in first class asked that the nuts not be served due to an allergy and they actually listened.

Yes, we have flown Air Transat to Orlando 3 times. We have not had a problem at all, with no peanut products served.
On our flight in 2002, there were apparently 4 or 5 PA/TNA people on board. The flight attendant made an announcement before the plane departed. It was announced that there were "several" nut allergic people on board, and that if "nuts" were brought to be consumed while in flight, to please refrain from eating them due to risk of reaction.
We still bring our own food to eat [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
