Dua’s happy sighting comes after she slammed United Airlines over the way her sister Rina’s peanut allergy was handled.
The London-born singer tweeted: ‘I can’t believe i’m on a @united flight rn and I told the steward that my sister was severely allergic to nuts and his reply was ‘we’re not a nut free airline so if she has an epi pen she might have to use that as we can’t not serve other passengers in your section nuts’.’
‘Is it just me or is that kinda mental???’ she added in a follow-up tweet.
United Airlines immediately reached out to Dua via Twitter encouraging her to make contact with them directly.

The airline adds: ‘However, we prepare and serve meals and snacks utilizing a variety of other ingredients including major food allergens. If you have concerns about a severe food allergy, please notify a flight attendant on board the aircraft. In some cases, we may be able to pass along your request to other customers seated nearby to refrain from opening and eating any allergen-containing products they may have brought on board.’
United stresses it does ‘not offer allergen-free buffer zones on our aircraft. Since we cannot guarantee allergen-free flights, we encourage customers to review any health concerns with their physicians prior to flying.’
However, in a tweet conversation with her followers, Dua stated that the flight attendant had not informed other passengers of Rina’s allergy.
‘They just said well we wont serve you two nuts but thats all we can do! LOL,’ she tweeted.
