Great decision Southwest! Peanut allergies top 90% of deaths from food allergies. Seems to be a great decision to help keep everyone safe. When it's life or death, how could someone be so tied to a certain food known to kill via exposure to air, touch and ingestion? Seems like an awfully selfish form of thinking. To the celiac posters: Celiac is not life-threatening (foodallergycanada.ca/2017/08/myth-vs-fact-celiac-disease-vs-wheat-allergy) whereas peanuts/tree nuts can be: air, touch, and ingestion killers. Perhaps you can bring some snacks that are good for you like the nut allergy community has always done - but in recycled air won't threaten to kill you, like peanuts could. Thanks Southwest for leveling the accessibility to all!
