Re: Southwest Airlines going Peanut Free!

I wonder if part of this is due to over abuse of those utilizing "peanut allergy" to pre board early. Those with peanut allergies contend that they need extra time to wipe the peanut dust from the surrounding seats & trays. Also pretzels cost much less than peanuts...so there's that too.
