when i hear severe allergic reaction, i think potential anaphylactic shock, i.e. life-threatening, so that's what i figured red was talking about. i thought that peanuts were generally avoided on flights nowadays as that allergy is so widespread. i know what you mean about the perfumes and stuff. i get a reaction to certain perfumes and chemicals. i get such a bad headache when stuck around it for too long that i sometimes end up in bed. so i know what you mean (i think!) and agree about it being difficult to accommodate everyone, all the time.
p.s. eleven, that made me laugh.
