In other news, the company ended serving peanuts on July 31, 2019:

Though the peanut has been an important part of our Company’s heritage and will always hold a special place in our Hearts, today marks the final day we’ll be serving them onboard. While many will miss our peanuts, at the end of the day, we’re most proud of our People and their Hospitality that sets us apart.

We hope that you will continue to enjoy our free pretzels and wonderful selection of snacks on longer flights. And remember: We’ll always be NUTS about Southwest.
