My family recently traveled on American Airlines. Imagine my surprise while reading the airline's in flight magazine regarding their policy, or lack there of, concerning individuals with nut allergies.

FARE's recent announcement concerning legislation for safer air travel for those with food allergies could not have been more timely. Read below.
