There are no straws. Many airlines don’t use straws either. I think it’s part of a sustainability initiative and convenience. Southwest does have stirrers, though, but I doubt you can drink from them like a straw. Let us know.

I'm not sure. They do provide straws and lids for kids cups, if you mentioned that you were worried about spilling I think it might be possible.

SW should be soon coming up with a straw replacement plan. After all, this is a way more important issue than upgrading old systems to prevent another travel meltdown.


In the meantime, for those who can't get through their day because someone may be using a plastic straw, suggest asking SW for the reusable straws that are available.
