Lawsuit claims United Airlines promised to accommodate woman with severe peanut allergy

 Friday, May 31, 2013

What should have been a fun-filled vacation turned into a major lawsuit. A Sacramento woman with a severe peanut allergy said she thought United Airlines had assured her she wouldn’t have a problem. Now, she’s suing after a mid-air allergic reaction forced an emergency landing and sent her to the hospital for days. "Basically, your lungs are collapsing. It’s like an anaconda around your lungs, and every time you breathe it closes in and doesn’t open," Alisa Gleason said describing her allergic reaction.
