WN Love Bites

Sun Oct 11, 2020 9:47 pm

I seem to remember in the 1980s, Southwest served their peanuts onboard in packages entitled "Love Bites". Soon after in 1988, the popular rock band Def Leppard had a worldwide #1 hit entitled "Love Bites". It appears that the "Love Bites" labeling on Southwest's peanuts may have gone away shortly thereafter, as I do not ever recall seeing it in the 1990s. Does anybody know the back-story? Did Southwest withdraw the "Love Bites" labeling as a result of a song title?

Similarly, there was also a change to the name of the inflight magazine as it was named the same as another air carrier.
