Interested to see if the number of physical altercations ticks up 

 

Here's a free article about it:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/airline-news/2022/02/03/southwest-airlines-resuming-alcohol-sa...

 

And the answer to the question everyone will be asking... "The airline said it will honor free drink coupons that expired in 2020 or 2021."

Good deal!

 

Two things one is a question:

 

1. Log into your profile and update your drink preference under 'travel'....they reverted both my wife and me to "no I don't want drink coupons as I earn them."

2. I remember when flying business class it said to save your receipt or something to redeem your free drink on a future flight. Does that sound right? Does anyone know how I'd go about doing that?

It's been a while but as I remember the "business select" ticket included a drink ticket that had to be used on the day of that flight only.

I could be mistaken....

Just checked mine and it says yes and also says this:

 

All drink coupons with an expiration date of 2020 or 2021 will be honored onboard through December 31, 2022 (regardless of the expiration month on the coupon). Please keep your physical Drink Coupon to redeem for a free drink in the future. Select edit to manage your drink coupons preferences.

Woo hoo, finally!!

 

Now the bigger question is where did I stash my old coupons ...

Found 3 2020 coupons in my purse! Did anyone actually receive drink coupons in 2021?

@jksobonya It has been nearly 2 years since I got any coupons. I still have more than 20 of them. I'm not a big drinker. Time to start, I guess.

On Flyertalk, people are posting pictures of the drink menu from yesterday. Coke Zero is back! Now, if they would just bring back Diet Dr. Pepper...

No gin, no bloody mary mix or tomato juice. Very odd.
