    Peanuts often come to mind as the quintessential airplane snack. But no more, Southwest Airlines announced.

    The Dallas-based airline is ending the tradition on all flights beginning August 1, citing the need to keep passengers with peanut allergies safe.

    “Our ultimate goal is to create an environment where all customers -- including those with peanut-related allergies -- feel safe and welcome on every Southwest flight,” the airlines said in a statement, in part.

    Passengers can still snag free pretzels and other snacks on longer flights.
