nuts

airlines seem to be more sympathetic to some allergies than others
United Airlines boots asthmatic customer from flight because of a cat

Horrible people applaud as 7-year-old is removed from plane because of allergic reaction to pets

Major airlines such as Qantas, Air New Zealand and British Airways do not serve nuts during its flights or offer them in in-flight meals.
Singapore Airlines issued a statement on Wednesday saying it would review the serving of nuts on board all flights.

I suspect that that is bad reporting by the BBC, and it should read "SOME major airlines"

But still, if they are prepared to act about nut allergies by not serving nuts on flight, why not act on pet allergies by banning pets from the cabin, so that pets have to go in a cage in the hold?

 “Statistically, it looks very suspicious, doesn’t it?”


It depends on your degree of confidence, maybe?
