Peanut dust in the air? Those airlines must really be cutting down on packaging costs if they're making you inhale your in-flight meals. "I'll have one cake spray please."

I'd recommend Peter Hans "Pete" Docter, an American film director, animator, screenwriter, producer and voice actor who has directed such feature films as Monsters, Inc., Up, and Inside Out. Pete seems like he'd have some interesting ideas for adapting OP's humorous day into a film.

Did you not alert the airlines that you have a peanut allergy? I don't pretend to know the facts because I've never dealt with this, but the airlines I've flown on withhold peanuts from passengers if one of them has a peanut allergy. I just assume it's something you have to let them know beforehand.

this. OP gets a quasi YDI from me for the last allergy attack if they neglected to tell the airlines about their peanut allergy... though many airlines stopped serving peanuts completely that is not the case for every airline so letting airlines know about your peanut allergy ahead of time is key to a safer flight (also let them know of any food allergy and animal allergies due to service animals and small animals in carriers being allowed on the passenger part of the plane now!)

With peanut allergies being SO common.. I think airlines know to not allow that food on the plane. At least one person will always have the allergy on the plane. I think that much is almost common sense... And so it's poor service from the airline's perspective. (Unless someone brought some food onto the plane, then it's obviously not the airline's fault). For this reason, I don't think OP deserves it for not "sharing" that.

I fly on Southwest a lot and they still provide bags of peanuts. There's been a couple times where they've announced beforehand that there was a passenger with peanut allergies so they were abstaining from passing them out until the plane landed so people could get them as they deplaned. I know most airlines don't give out peanuts anymore, but apparently not all.

From what I've read, the method they use to clean out the air vents/air filtration of the passenger area of planes is imperfect and leaves residual dust in some cases. While the residual is usually negligible, if a person has a bad enough allergy, even that amount can trigger an allergic reaction up to and including anaphylactic shock. Also, it might not have actually been peanut dust- if someone on the plane was wearing a scented product, that could have possibly triggered the reaction- which,

I've been on a flight where peanuts were banned on the flight because someone had an allergy, we got doritos instead of the usual nuts :P

How do you know about our breathable meals? They haven't been released to the public yet due to the allergic reactions they cause many people. Come to think of it, four separate prototypes were stolen from our faculties… CCTV footage reveals a thief wearing a grayscale dog costu—
