Hi, My family is planning a trip to New Zealand from Toronto. I was wondering if anyone has flown there, what, if any, problems they were faced with and what air lines they flew. I checked with Qantas and they dont seem very helpful. I am looking into Air New Zealand now. Looking forward to hearing from anyone!

Hi- My husband is from Australia and we have traveled there several times. We have flown United out of L.A.....and I know they have said with request they would not serve nuts on the plane. Last time we flew we did not know that our duaghter was PA but she didn't have any problems.

Madi's Mom--Did you end up flying on Air New Zealand? Did they serve peanuts? They told me on the phone today that they didn't, but since they don't specifically say on their website that they don't I'm still a bit suspicious.

A friend of mine flew to New Zealand using Quantas and plans on writing a letter to them. They served muffins with walnuts on top and her son after eating one broke out in hives. Another person I know flew to New Zealand on her own (without PA child) and discovered peanuts being handed out to the passengers. She said she flipped because if she would of brought her son on the flight he would of died. Unbelievable. So beware and ask alot of questions... Hope this is helpful
Good luck
