We've come a long way, baby. My peanut allergic son is now 14yo and he traveled with a school group to Washington DC -- his first airflight without his parents at his side. We found Virgin America to be very accomodating. I called ahead of time and they noted that my son had a peanut allergy. No peanuts were given out but they did pass out plain M&Ms which he declined due to cross contamination. Still, we received respect and accomodation for his allergy through this airline. We'd definitely fly on Virgin America again. We've had great luck on United, too. Southwest was our worst experience and never, never again.

Good to know about Virgin Airlines. Interestingly, we typically fly Southwest and found them to be very accommodating to our food allergy needs. Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with them.
