I’m always armed with my Epi pens and the usual precautionary meds, but if my neighbor brings those airport snacks on board that they seem to sell in every airport now days, I’m hosed! Also, if they serve peanuts or any sort of snacks with nuts, it’s bad news for me!
Southwest now allows me to board early using an ADA pass, which allows me to board early, pick a seat that would allow me to be close to a flight attendant and wipe down my entire row, tray, arm rests, etc to at least ensure that my surroundings have been cleared of debris left by a previous passenger. They also don’t serve any snacks that contain nuts during the flights that I’m on.
The attendants all are made aware that there’s a passenger on board with a severe nut allergy and I always make sure they know that I have several Epi pens and where they are. I’ve had bad experiences on other airlines, but Southwest hasn’t done me wrong yet
