An excellent piece entitled: “What Should Airlines Do About Children With Peanut Allergies?” appeared in the New York Times “Motherlode: Adventures in Parenting” blog section yesterday.
The article by Abby Ellin makes the case for better accommodation of people with food allergies by the airlines. She details the experiences of two families, the Silvermans and Mandelbaums, both of which experienced humiliation at the hands of airline personnel. Our readers may find these anecdotes all too familiar.
The post also provides a link to a petition to lobby lawmakers to pass legislation to protect the food allergic during air travel.
