This is from their website:

Peanut AllergiesWhen you notify us that you have a peanut allergy, we'll create a buffer zone of three rows in front of and three rows behind your seat. Effective on flights operating June 1, 2012 and beyond, when you notify us that you have a peanut allergy, we'll refrain from serving peanuts and peanut products onboard your flight. We'll also advise cabin service to board additional non-peanut snacks, which will allow our flight attendants to serve these snack items to everyone within this area.
Gate agents will be notified in case you'd like to pre-board and cleanse the immediate seating area. We'll do everything we can, but unfortunately we still can't guarantee that the flight will be completely peanut-free.

Why can't they just not serve peanuts? LOL! I understand if other people brought their own but why can't the airlines just choose other snack than peanuts?

I know, I thought the same thing when I read it too - like wouldn't it just be way easier for everyone if they just stopped serving the darn things? But I still think it's progress, a little progress anyway...this country needs to stop being so obsessed with food. That would fix many problems for us all.
