Southwest Airlines to no longer serve peanuts


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Southwest is taking a nod from other airlines to ditch a fan-favorite snack.

The company said due to passengers who suffer from peanut allergies nuts will no longer be available on the flight. 

The airline will stop serving peanuts starting on August 1.

Southwest says it will still offer complimentary pretzels and other items on longer routes.

American and United don’t serve packaged peanuts on board, and they also warn other food may contain nuts.

Delta won’t serve peanuts if a passenger notifies the airline about an allergy, and it lets people board early to wipe down their seats and tray tables.
