Really annoying SWA. Husband is Type 1 diabetic, also an A List preferred as he has to fly all the time for work. Cannot eat wheat. Airports and flying are the worst for him as "on the go" free airline snacks are always carb laden. Cookies, pretzles, crackers. Yay. He can't eat them. Or sugar really. Kids are prone to Juvenile Diabetes (type 1), what do we do with them on those LAX-MDW flights? Not eating causes havoc with blood sugar . . . bring back the nuts! Or maybe there could be a "nutty" section on the plane. This is all nuts to me . . . people will bring what they need on the plane anyway so I'm wondering if "nut police" will be out for those buying them at Hudson's News and bringing them on their own. By singling out one Special Need group, it makes others with different "special needs" feel ignored and disrespected. BOO. And, BTW, I so appreciate those who cannot eat peanuts. We had a neighbor child who would go into shock if he touched one. Horrid, really. Can't we all get along?
