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."
We’ll always be nuts about Southwest, but we’ll no longer serve them as of August 1. Not offering peanuts will help ensure a safe cabin for Customers with allergies. -Mariam— Southwest Airlines (@SouthwestAir) July 10, 2018
