Beginning June 1, 2012, Delta Airlines will change its peanut allergy policy. The Delta website reads: "Effective on flights operating June 1, 2012 and beyond, when you notify us that you have a peanut allergy, we'll refrain from serving peanuts and peanut products onboard your flight."
Delta requests that passengers notify them of their peanut allergies at least 48 hours before their flight. They also point out that, while they will not serve peanuts in-flight, they can not guarantee that the flight will be completely peanut-free.
In the past, Delta would create a buffer zone of three rows around a passenger who notified them of a peanut allergy. This new policy will make air travel a little safer for travelers with peanut allergies.
