Easyjet bans nuts on all flights


European airline EasyJet has banned nuts on all their flights, this also includes passengers bringing their own nuts on the flights.

All products containing nuts will also be banned if a passenger allergic to nuts in on the flight.

At present, there are no rules governing the serving of nuts during flights.


German carrier Lufthansa is among other airlines with a rule against serving peanuts on their planes.

However, they cannot guarantee a 'nut free' environment.

Unfortunately, earlier this year, a passenger died on a British Airways flight after eating a baguette.


An 11-year-old girl called Josie would like to see nuts banned by all airlines, as she herself has a life-threatening nut allergy,

which makes her scared to fly in case someone has nuts on her flight.

She always takes an EpiPen with her but says:

"They only delay an anaphylactic reaction by a few minutes."

She also said:

"You cannot do anything if you are 30,000 feet in the air."

When you book with the airlines you should be able to tell them whether or not you have a nut allergy in advance, if not you would be responsible for all damage caused.

Tbh don't really care for nuts but surely theres a better way to do this? Ie if there happens to be a person onboard with a "Life Threatening" nut allergy they could move them to a different row were someone isn't eating nuts or put in a "special" area?

Or the plane company or whatever should know about the passengers allergies, allowing them to put them in certain seats

Yeah, but there is nowhere to tell them, unless you phone them which usually costs money. Like when that BA passenger died, in the ingredients nuts wasn't in bold like an allergy should be.

Will think about it there should be some sort of "Food Form" to still out before even booking the flight so attendants seat coordinators etc know in advance
