Southwest bans lemons from flights: Limes triumphant


In a move that has surprised citrus aficionados from coast to coast, Southwest Airlines (LUV) recently announced its plans to stop carrying lemons on its flights.

Southwest, which used to offer its passengers both lemon and lime slices, has determined that lemons are far less popular, and its decision to banish the yellow-fleshed fruit should save it approximately $100,000 per year.
