I LOVE how you have a peanut free policy on board when there is someone with a peanut allergy. By offering that, you are highly praised by the allergy community. I have a suggestion that would really help, though. There are a rare number of those who suffer from peanut allergies who cannot even be in the room with a peanut. My daughter is one of them. She has reacted to peanuts in sealed plastic bags, to people eating Snickers around her, etc...
On our last flight, the lady behind us ignored the request of the crew to not eat any peanut items on board. My daughters eyes began swelling. Luckily, it was only an hour long flight. There has to be in place some sort of way for the cabin crew to enforce this request, when the person with the allergy is this allergic. They can enforce the no smoking rule - and that's more of a convenience issue.
Come on, Southwest - see what you can do. My daughter has reacted on three out of the last four flights we have been on. Every time she has a reaction, it gets worse - the nature of the beast.
