Under the Air Carrier Access Act, airlines are permitted, but not mandated, to require 48 hours notice if a passenger intends to bring an emotional support animal on board. This could allow them to put something in place that would allow an allergic passenger to switch flights, but I know of no law that would specifically require them to either notify or accommodate the allergic passenger. I do think there could be civil liability if an allergic passenger informed the airline of his condition and the airline failed to at least inform him of a cat on board. I think as a matter of fairness the airline ought to waive any flight change fee and allow the allergic passenger to take a different flight at no extra charge, but I think whether they actually would might depend on how many Twitter followers you have.
