Dealing with a food allergy can be quite a challenge, especially if it is a severe one. However, Elsie Bay–who goes by @iamelsiebay on TikTok–found herself in a fix when flight attendants announced that someone had a severe nut allergy on the plane just after she had eaten a Snickers bar. As she had already finished her snack, she could not do much. She looked scared and guilty as the flight attendant made the announcement.

Bay wrote, "Nobody on this plane knows how close we are to a disaster." She added, "I just had a Snickers bar." Soon enough, an announcement came on that said, "Welcome onboard. On this flight, we have a passenger who is severely allergic to nuts." It happened when Bay tried to get the peanuts out of her teeth. "What a twist!" she exclaimed. Meanwhile, the announcement continued, "We therefore ask you not to consume any nuts or open products containing nuts that you may have brought onboard."

Bay just shifted her eyes uncomfortably and stopped in the middle of removing nuts from her teeth. She looked too scared to move her face. The woman expressed she would have to keep her mouth closed and did the same for an hour because of how scared she was of causing any trouble. The video ended up receiving over 4 million views and 206k likes. People took to the comment section of the video to share similar experiences and talk about the severity of nut allergies.

@twilightpuff wrote, "Actually, peanut allergy isn't airborne. But for those who have had a big reaction before, only knowing there are peanuts in front of you can cognitively trigger a reaction." @elisabet3029 shared a similar experience and commented, "One time, I was eating peanut M&Ms and that announcement came on. Let's just say I pack them up real quick." @emmascorner__ explained, "Allergic here! The reason they say this is because if someone who eats nuts uses the bathroom for any reason and then the allergic person uses the bathroom, they might have a reaction to any particles."

@readitnsleep shared, "I'm glad my peanut allergy isn't that bad yet, but I kinda wish people wouldn't open them in enclosed spaces near me because it feels like getting pepper sprayed. Like the air is spicy now." @borderly22 expressed, "I opened a Nutella pouch with breadsticks once on a flight afer the announcement because I forgot Nutella contains nuts. They flagged me within seconds like I committed a national crime." The creator didn't put an update on how things eventually turned out or if there were any problems on the flight.

In another similar story, a flight attendant shared three things to never do on a flight for a safe and comfortable experience. The first thing Cher Dallas—who goes by @cherdallas on TikTok—shared was that she would never wear shorts on a flight as it can be very cold. The second reason is that if people had to evacuate the plane, their shorts would not protect their legs from the hot slide. The second thing she shared was to book connection flights with a 3-hour difference, so you have ample amounts of buffer time in case of any delays. She expressed that delays are quite common and can happen due to many reasons. The third thing she pointed out was that you shouldn't use toilet paper on a plane. The toilet paper has perspiration on it, but it could be someone's body fluids as well. She advises people to stick to Kleenex instead.
