It's the end of an era for one of the Bay Area's most popular airlines

Your next Southwest flight may be a bit different than you're used to as the airline has announced it will stop serving peanuts in-flight next month.

In a statement to USA Today's Today in the Sky blog Southwest said: 

"Peanuts forever will be part of Southwest’s history and DNA," Southwest said in a statement to USA TODAY's Today in the Sky blog. "However, to ensure the best on-board experience for everyone, especially for customers with peanut-related allergies, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue serving peanuts on all flights beginning August 1."
