Peanuts and other nut allergies

We recognize that some customers are allergic to peanuts and other tree nuts. Although we don't serve peanuts, we can't guarantee you won't be exposed during flight:

  • Food served on board may contain peanut oils or trace amounts of peanuts or other tree nut products
  • We may serve nut mixes that contain other types of tree nuts
  • Customers may carry on peanuts, foods with peanut butter or other types of nuts
  • Regular plane cleanings and our air filtration systems do not remove nut allergens

We strongly encourage you to take necessary medical precautions if you have a nut allergy because we cannot provide nut-free zones or accommodate specific requests to not serve food containing nuts.
