hey - I saw this today after perusing airline "in flight service" pages:

from here: [url="http://www.united.com/page/article/0,6722,51257,00.html"]http://www.united.com/page/article/0,6722,51257,00.html[/url]

Note: None of the items in the United SnackBoxes contain peanuts, peanut flour or peanut oil. Some products have been manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts and are labeled as such.

Does anyone know what their "cocktail snack" is?

I noticed that there is trail mix listed in some of these kits. Won't they contain peanuts?

if you google the brand of trail mix, it's Manor Creek Naturals, Early Start Trail Mix...which contains: oat clusters, almonds, walnuts, raspberries, cranberries and blueberries.
no peanuts

Does anyone have any up to date information on United please. Could the cocktail snack be peanuts?

others of us are wondering too. A few months ago I was emphatically told no by United when I flew.
REcently on another thread, someone posted that they were told very recently that United said peanuts could be served on some flights.
I called them, got no where and haven't been able to call back again.
It's rather disappointing if they started to serve peanuts as the cocktail snack, they were a no-peanut airline.

I can't remember for sure, but when I flew United in the fall, I'm pretty sure the snack boxes were all PEANUT free. There were some trail mixes, which did have tree nuts, but I seem to recall the info' in the magazine saying peanut-free. They did have a snack box (morning one?) that had a little cup of Sunbutter in it.

I called United a couple of weeks ago, and they told me that they sometimes serve peanuts as the complimentary snack.

W-H-A-T??!!!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
Please list number you called, if you have it. Did you call United Mainline, or one of their "feeder" or United Express carriers??
Did you get name of whom you talked to? Was this just a reservations agent (outsourced offshore now)?? Or were you actually speaking to a Higher-UP customer service rep (there are only a few) based in the USA??
[b] [i] I really need to know this info. [/i] [/b]
I will go in guns blazing on them, DH included, and will enlist thousands of their aircrews if I have to.
PLEASE e-mail me if you'd rather not post.

I believe that the United emergency landing of 1997 (?) mentioned in this linked item is one of the reasons United went no-peanuts (bagged, anyway) in the first place:

Thinking online, Follow me, if you can --
Thinking now about how America West (who WAS sesrving peanuts until very recently) bought out USAir & assumed the USAir name.
The "original" USAir was NOT serving peanuts as they were a code share airline with United. Code Share means you might be booked under the name United, but you actually end up flying on a USAir flight as they share equip & flights in some markets (simiplified explanation).
THEREFORE, people were actually booked thru United as "United" but were actually flying on "new" USAIR which was old America West who was still SERVING BAGS OF PEANUTS>!!
Still doesn't answer why a UNITED employee would state they were now serving PEANUTS.
Really do want to know who said that & the real story.
Help me with current info, anybody who has it.
