This actually came about because of a Chicago lawer who personally sued southwest over expired coupons

I'm not sure to which comment you're replying... but FYI, the replacement drink coupons issued in result of the class action were sent in April, 2017 and all expired on May 1, 2018.

Something that might be possible to do, since we can board using our phone as a boarding pass, maybe make the drink coupons also available in the SWA app?

I'm not sure how they would "expire" them when you used it. If you have the fortune to buy a Business Select ticket, the drink coupon will show up as a second page on your mobile boarding pass. (Important to either get a paper copy for the drink coupon or save to your wallet since the boarding pass won't be generated by the app late after the scheduled departure.)

 

But that's date sensitive, where the regular coupons can be used anytime during their valid period.

Sometimes a gracious flight attendent will accept recently expired drink coupons with a gracious smile as happened on my last flight to NYC this past weekend.   You don't try, you don't get served!

I’ve used expired drink tickets on multiple occasions and the flight attendants have never said anything...I don’t think they really look or even care to be honest.

Some flight attendants check the expiration, some often do not. Occasionally I'm not even asked for the coupon at all. 😉
