We just flew with Alaska Airlines for the first time on 7/4/21. I let them know in advance about the my daughter’s peanut/tree-nut legume allergy. I again went up to the counter to remind them when we arrived at the airport. I would also suggest using an index card explaining the allergy to be able to hand to the flight attendant. We were able to board early and clean the area. It was a success and we all felt so much better knowing that pre-board is available.
On the outbound flight they announced that there was a peanut allergy passenger on board but forgot to say all nuts. They did hand out Kind bars in first class so I was nervous. Everything was fine thankfully. On the way back I asked if they could not offer the Kind bars as an option and they agreed.
I know everyone on staff is overwhelmed with covid and other concerns, so I tried to be as calm and considerate as I could when approaching the counter. Everyone with Alaska Airlines did their best to make us feel safe. Beyond happy about this. I wouldn’t assume that they will let the flight attendant know, that’s why I suggest the index card so you can discreetly remind them.
My daughter wore light weight gloves and a mask the entire flight. Our flight was 2 1/2 hours. We also put a beach towel over the seat after we wiped the seat and window with Lysol wipes. They said it would be cleaned but it wasn’t allergy safe clean. We are still grateful and it was a success.
