DS is planning to spend the Fall semester in Scotland. The travel plans are now being made. And now all of a sudden the emails from the institution sending him say "YOU" instead of "WE" in reference to making the travel arrangements.

I do understand. They did not know what they were up against when they so easily said they could handle it.

So I spent today on the phone, yesterday too. DS wants to travel with the group so that means starting in Newark New Jersey.

That means Los Angeles to Newark. I called American Airlines and they say they are peanut free but will not make an announcement about PA before the flight takes off. I have two friends who might be up there in the ranks of AA so I have calls in to them to maybe enlist their cooperation.

Then it is Virgin Atlantic from Newark to London. I called them and they started a medical form on DS and will contact me in 48 hours with questions and maybe an answer. They said this has been done before so I have hope.

Then it is British Midlands from London to Edinburgh. I have to wait till morning to call them but I have emailed them. I have hopes.

Am I missing anything? I'm waiting around for answers now, I will have dates and flight numbers in about a week so I can firm it up with the airlines.

Any suggestions? DH and I are kind of freaked out with the thought of three airlines but we feel that once he gets there he'll be OK, it's the getting there that is the problem.
