British Airways Crews Will Make Peanut and Nut Allergy Announcements

British Airways has created new guidelines for flight crews that include announcements asking passengers not to open or eat peanuts or tree nuts when the flight contains a passenger with an allergy.

The new policy will take effect today, February 18. The current food menus at British Airways do not include peanuts in snacks or meals, but there are tree nuts in some.

“We are updating our policy and, as an additional measure, our crew will also make an announcement on board to inform customers

, and to ask those in the vicinity to refrain from eating nut products,” Michele Kropf, a New York-based spokesperson for the airline, confirmed to Allergic Living, an online magazine about allergies.

British Airways is one of the world's largest international airlines serving 78 countries globally and follows Delta Airlines, which makes peanut allergy announcements for the same reasons.
