Have recently travelled with Ryanair with my peanut-allergic daughter and was treated with the upmost respect and care from the flight attendants. They promptly made an announcement in various languages informing passengers they were not going to sell any peanut containing products as well as asking them to refrain from eating any peanut containing foods due to the severity of a possible reaction.
The crew went as far as asking where our epi-pens were located in case my husband and I were to become incapacitated and our child needed assistance.
It was so comforting to fly with a company that not only understands the seriousness of food allergies, but also is also willing to take a stand to protect its passengers.
It was especially comforting because airlines such as United and US Airways have a policy of refusing to make any special accommodations to passengers who suffer from a food allergy (an actual disability). While there can never be a guarantee for a peanut free flight, the crew did a fabulous job at taking all of the possible steps in ensuring the safety of our daughter.
I will personally try to let others know what an exceptional treatment we received so that Ryanair will receive the positive recognition it deserves.
