There are some circumstances where this may be necessary as you stated.

While I feel allergy protection is the responsibility of the sufferer, I would not put another person's life in danger for the sake of a snack (or even a meal)!

This is an MSG thread, right?

Has anyone been to Madison Square Garden?

Nuts

Pretzel packs have nut particles, so reads the label on the pretzels on a recent AirTran flight. Peanut butter crackers are sold on Spirit flights as well as other airlines. I am sure the person can see a doctor prior to a flight and obtain any necessary meds to prevent allergy. Soon, the airlines will forbid any food on flights.

For the 4th or maybe 5th time now, a mask would not do anything. Are you purposely ignoring me saying this???

Yes you bring your inahaler, but guess what, people are not allowed to smoke on planes so you really dont have to worry about inhaling smoke on a smoke free plane.

Oh you are sure are you? So there is this magic cure that people can take now that prevents the allergy. I am sure the people who suffer this will be happy to know that. It will be news to them too since no one else in the world seems to know it exists.

If masks don't help- maybe a doctor before flight should be seen for prevention.
Actually I do have to worry about bad air on the plane (its recirculated air and full of germs) and people who smell like ashtrays while on board. I prepare for this. Even 3rd hand smoke makes me very ill. So, I have to take the appropriate steps. I keep my face covered as much as possible.

What exactly do you think seeing a doctor before hand would do? The doctor will say yes you have a nut allergy, don't have any contact with nuts. There is not some magic spell they can cast that would keep the person safe. Visiting a doctor before hand would do nothing.

Clearly you do not understand food allergies.

My father became allergic to shellfish when he got older (cripes I hope it never happens to me). He wound up in the hospital one night from eating fries that were deep fried in the same oil as shrimp. He learned the hard way to avoid anything that might be remotely connected to shellfish.

Many of us are allergic to smoke. Its very bothersome, indeed. I never dated smokers and refused to marry one. Thats for sure.
