"Peanuts are back!"*

*Would be a misleading headline for this news item.



Miss those Southwest Airlines peanuts? You can buy some for a price

The airline, which stopped serving free packs of peanuts a year ago due to passenger allergy concerns, this month started selling peanuts online and at its company store in Dallas.

I wonder if they are fresh or new old stock!

Cute.

The tins of peanuts are sold out.

I did order the bag that looks like peanuts for a Christmas gift. Will have to hide it and somehow remember where I put it. LOL!

I've gone through two of these since the start of summer. Throw a couple ziplock bags in my briefcase and I've got peanuts again on WN!

Jimmy Carter would be proud.

Wow! I thought peanuts is not coming back. How it did happen? They don't serve a peanuts anymore. You can eat mini pretzels.

Which is funny, because I can still get nuts (mainly tree nuts) on Delta, United, and American flights, and many of the ULCC's have them as BOB. Don't know what WN's issue is.

That also being said, I have noticed on recent flights WN is pretty stingy on snack offerings, and I have been offered more on the legacy carriers, even in the back.

We've come full circle.
