Envoy Air
« on: June 20, 2017, 03:42:43 PM »
I just received my airline tickets for a trip to visit a friend in Missouri and see that my two American Airlines flights are operated by Envoy Air.  (It did not show up as anything other than AA when I booked it!)  Has anyone ever flown with them before?  Do they serve peanuts or tree nuts in the main cabin?  (AA does not serve either as free snacks.)

I'm on hold with American Airlines now... but hoping someone here may have some insight.

I think Envoy = American Eagle which is the regional carrier for AA.  Not sure if their peanut policies are different, but as a regional I would anticipate less snacks, etc. in general.
TX - USA
DS - peanut, tree nut, milk, eggs, corn, soy, several meds, many environmentals. Finally back on Xolair!
DD - mystery anaphylaxis, shellfish.
DH - banana/avocado, aspirin.  Asthma.
Me - peanut, tree nut, shellfish, banana/avocado/latex,  some meds.

Thanks for the quick reply.  That's exactly what I found out.  They have the same operating policy and snacks as regular AA flights, just the crew work for a regional company.  *phew*  The representative said they do not serve any peanuts onboard at all, but there may be warmed tree nuts in first class.  Some snacks for purchase have nuts in them.  I'll be sure to pick a seat far in the back and bring extra snacks for people around me who get the munchies.

I don't like AA's allergy policy one bit, but I appreciate that they don't serve free peanuts or tree nuts on their planes.
