No way. That's a WN staple. It would be sacrilege.
With so many people having peanut allergies now a days and not needing to keep them and just serve pretzels, or premium snacks, or just makes more sense.
Reason I've heard it's a revenue stream decision.
WN has seen a spiking trend in a increase of Peanut Allergies aka No Peanut flights. Going hand in hand it's seen a decline the same in Early Bird and Business Select sales. The Traveling public gotten wise on how to Beat the WN system by buying the cheapest fare and saying you have a Peanut allergy.
This automatically bumps you a pre boarding passengers. Only drawl back is if you don't get Exit row or a free drink. Plus side you get a seat up front most times and save hundreds of dollars while still getting rapid rewards points.
Wow! If WN's system grants preboarding for a peanut allergy, why not fix that instead of dropping peanut distribution? This seems bass-ackwards to me.
