Nøddeallergi on board: Laura had to hide in the flytoilettet

Nøddeallergier can be so severe that you can die from it.

And since the flights are enclosed places, where you often get nuts in the form of snackposer or energy bars, so have the airlines often the procedures to handle a passenger's allergy.

Anyway, ended with the English teacher Laura Merry with having to protect themselves by hiding in the restroom, since there was served nuts on her journey from Sydney to Melbourne in Australia with Qantas Airlines.

It writes the Daily Mail.

'It is 2019, and the #Qantas refuses, incredibly, to take allergies seriously', she wrote, among other things on Twitter in a lookup from its use LauraMerry8, which has since been deleted.

The 25-year-old woman from East Sussex had contacted the airline in order to inform them about his allergy to almonds. Nuts, that can send her into anaphylaxis - a condition that affects breathing and will require a shot of adrenaline.

Laura Merry was going to visit his sister, since she påstigningen to the plane was greeted with the message that the man from the cabin crew - and thus the airline's page is not intended to remove the nuts from the menu on the trip.

'They served the nuts to the entire plane, even though I had asked for was not served any because of my serious allergies. So I had to suffer and take this mask on and save me on the toilet' report, she from his experience.

Laura Merry, who always has his EpiPen (a pen with adrenaline, red.) with on the travel, tells the Daily Mail that the head of the cabin crew reacted coolly to her request to omit the nuts on board and maintained that they had not heard anything about the allergy beforehand.

The English teacher has, however, a document from Qantas, the evidence of her correspondence with the airline about her allergy.

- I understand that Qantas can't stop other passengers from bring their own nøddesnacks on board, but they minimized not nuts on board, when they served them, says Laura Merry to the Daily Mail.

the Airline has since apologized on Twitter and on the phone to Laura Merry.

Qantas is aware of the challenges that asthma sufferers face, and to take steps to reduce the risk for many of our customers - especially exposure to peanuts - but since there is a wide range of allergies, it is not possible to meet everyone's needs, says a spokesman from Qantas to the Daily Mail.

Laura Merry will be flying home to England the 24. march - again with Qantas - and fears for the trip, although Qantas has promised that there will not be served nuts on her next flight.

She hopes her story will get the airlines to think more about in relation to allergies.

- Even if the worst of the 11 allergens could be minimised as much as possible on the flights, it could give others a more comfortable journey.
