US Airways Kills Peanuts

They still had peanuts? Well, no longer as you can now add US Airways to the list of airlines not serving bagged tributes to George Washington Carver. The airline claims it’s to stop peanut particles drifting from passenger’s gnashing maws and into the orifices of peanut allergy sufferers, a deadly disaster that also serves as the premise for last summer’s blockbuster, “Peanuts on a Plane.”

“Several other major airlines have already stopped serving peanuts after peanut allergy groups expressed their members’ fears of a dangerous in-flight reaction,” reports the AP.

But Edgar, speaking in the third-person, thinks otherwise. “MrConsumer thinks that pretzels are cheaper than peanuts and that may better explain the change,” he writes on his blog, Consumer World Blog by MrConsumer.
