Has anyone flown with them with anaphylaxis?

They aren't on the Allergic Living airlines chart.

From what I can tell from their website, they don't advertise peanuts or nuts as a free snack and only have a few paid snacks that contain tree nuts. Not sure of anything beyond that, and our travel agent is looking into it, but I was wondering if anyone here has flown with them or had any experience with them.

Hmmm, I'm curious too, because going to Iceland has been on DH's bucket list. Our allergist flew with them as the cheapest fare to London a couple of summers ago, but alas, his kids don't actually have allergies. Let us know what you find out. I wonder if there's a European allergy board that might have people with more experience with this airline?

As mentioned in another thread, we had great flights with Icelandair. They were very allergy aware: printing allergies on my boarding pass, making an onboard announcement, and removing allergens from their snack carts (items for sale only - they don't serve any free snacks). One flight the flight attendant asked if I was carrying an auto injector with me. We will definitely fly with them again, and hope to take advantage of their Iceland layover option next time too.

Just a reminder to notify them of the allergy when you book the flight. They will request documentation of the medical condition to provide accommodation. A copy of my MedicAlert wallet card was sufficient.

Safe travels!
