In brief: Be Cautious
This is a very serious concern for obvious reasons -- if a reaction occurs and help is needed the plane can't just pull over. Before you book a flight can the airlines and ask what their policy is regarding peanuts and customers with peanut allergy.
Most don't serve peanuts anymore but passengers now bring food onto planes and that is a source of concern.
