There is a lot of people in this topic that don’t seem to fully comprehend what it’s about.
To the people that say southwest’s in flight service is getting worse. How often do you fly them? I fly southwest every few months and it always seems to be getting better. Flight attendants have always been nice and their snack selection, if anything has gotten bigger. Recently on longer flights I’ve seen Oreos some kind of cracker and I think wheat thins. Removing peanuts isn’t this end of world scenario for getting a snack you enjoy on the flight.
Also, one of my friends has alergies so severe that touching our kitchen table and scratching their arm or something gives them bumps. It’s hard to clean a plane in the 45-60 minutes it’s on the ground for a layover and once you realize once the last passenger gets off boarding begins almost right away. It’s hard to clean every single seat so even if your flight doesn’t have peanuts if the flight before did some passengers are still st risk. Removing them all together is the only necessary way to remove alergies like these from becoming a major issue.
