I posted about this seat cover under the Airlines thread but thought I would also post the info here.

I purchased the Nice Flights Jet Seat Airline Seat Cover and it arrived in the mail yesterday. The seat cover comes in a small 5 by 6 inch carrying pouch. DD wanted to open up the pouch and see the cover last night and I said no. That was a good thing. Tonight before I got home from work, she opened it up and found a sealed package of...dry roasted nuts (which listed peanuts as the ingredient)...just like the packages that used to be distributed on airplances. The package was sealed and, thankfully, she brought to her dad to open and he actually looked at the packaged before opening it and giving it back to her. I think the company's marketing department probably thought it was a cute way to market the company and didn't realize that this product would serve a niche market like ours. I'm planning to email the company tomorrow about it. I just wanted to warn folks about it.

Wow! Good thing she didn't open the package. You're right - the company probably doesn't realize that people with nut allergies might buy this product. Let us know what they say.

The only contact info was a web comments form. Here's the URL for the company: [url="http://www.niceflights.net."]www.niceflights.net.[/url] I forgot to copy what I wrote before I submitted the comment. Basically, I recounted what happened and encouraged them to remove the packet of peanuts from the product. I also encouraged them to market to our community. Hopefully, I'll get a response.

I received a reply from the company today and it was a wonderful response. It is so nice when a company gets it.
Dear Colleen,
I would like to thank you for calling the fact that my product has been
featured on the peanut allergy site to my attention. I did not know that
they had taken notice of my product and were recommending that people with
such allergies may protect themselves by using The Jet Seat. I'm very
pleased to know that my product may be helpful to people in more specific
ways than I had realized.
Upon consideration, and in view of a primary goal of helping air travelers
to create a more safe and comfortable flying experience, we at Nice Flights
have decided that we will no longer have peanuts as part of our packaging.
Thank you for your very helpful insight.

First, I would like to thank you for making the Jet Seat. I recently
purchased it for an upcoming trip for my 4-year-old daughter to use. She is
allergic to peanuts and often has contact reactions. I thought the product
would be a great way to ensure she had a clean sheet to sit on.
However, I was both surprised and disappointed by something that was
included in the pouch. Last night, my daughter opened the pouch and
discovered a silver foil packet that looked like a candy package. She
brought the packet to her dad so that he could open it. Unfortunately, it
was a package of dry roasted nuts which contained peanuts. Thankfully, the
package remained sealed and she did not have a reaction.
I realize that the peanuts are a marketing device and that your company did
not realize that your product would be well suited to a niche market serving
peanut-allergic individuals. However, I would encourage you to rethink your
inclusion of the package of nuts with the product. I would also encourage
you to actively market your product to peanut-allergic individuals (and
their parents).
Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely,
Colleen

It's not as pretty, but when we flew with our PA son we carried disposable table cloths with us and put one over his seat for every flight. At the end of the flight, we threw it out and opened a new one for the next flight.

Thanks for the link. I'm so happy they took notice and are going to change their marketing. Wow! I have bookmarked the page, so I can buy some covers before we take DS on his first airplane trip next year. Thanks!
