Bethenny Frankel Calls Out Airline for Ignoring Her Fish Allergy Warning

The 'Real Housewives of New York City' star says that the pilot decided to turn around to ensure her safety, but she protested it because it would delay other passengers.

AceShowbiz - Bethenny Frankel just found herself in another drama caused by her fish allergy. Weeks after suffering a near-fatal allergic reaction to fish, the TV personality revealed she had a traumatic incident during a flight because the airline ignored her warning about her fish allergy.

In a tweet posted on Thursday, January 3, the main cast member of "The Real Housewives of New York City" said she had alerted the unnamed airline multiple times about her health issue. But after she boarded the plane, the stewardesses served bass which could trigger her allergy.

"Called airline mult x to say I have fish allergy. Got on & they're serving bass. They couldn't not serve it they said," she wrote. The pilot then decided to turn around to ensure her safety, but she protested it because it would delay other passengers. "Then they were turning around which I protested bc it would delay people. Cabin asked to not serve it & pilot made announcement to plane. That was fun. #epilife," she added.

Bethenny later explained that one can have an allergic reaction to the smell of cooking fish. "To clarify: some allergens are transmitted by touch & air. Fish is one & is fatal," she wrote in another post. "The more exposure to them, the more susceptible. It's not like an immunity thing where more exposure means less susceptible. It's opposite. I've always kept it quiet but that's over now."

Vowing to make airlines be more aware of food allergies, she declared, "This airline knows who they are. And this policy will change if it is all I focus on. I almost screwed everyone's night up too, which the pilot delightfully announced."

She continued, "I ask airlines @UnitedAirlines @AmericanAir @Delta @JetBlue @SouthwestAir @VirginAmerica etc. stop serving airborne allergens. I'll stay on this until you do."

While the pilot made the right decision to turn around, the 48-year-old author clarified in another tweet that it didn't happen because most of the passengers rejected the idea. "plane didn't turn bc cabin voted," she said.

Bethenny opened up in December about her scary experience of suffering from a "rare fish allergy" when she unknowingly had a soup with fish in it. She felt itchy and was unconscious for 15 minutes, before being taken to the hospital.

After she regained consciousness, she couldn't talk and see, leading her to think that she had a stroke. Doctors told her that she could've died if she didn't receive the proper treatment five minutes later. She ended up being treated in ICU for two days.
