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.

I read the reply for not honoring drink coupons from 2015 and it makes sense. We have 4 that expired last year in December. It would seem to me that those should be replaced as flying during a pandemic when one is 70 did not make sense to my wife and I.

Free drinks served with a round of Covid just isn't worth the risk

Thanks

It's my understanding that March 2020 and beyond drink coupons have been extended until the end of this year so be sure to hold on to the expired ones so you can try to use them if you feel comfortable doing so once drink service resumes.

Thanks for the info, ope you are right.  The coupons aren't that easy to get if you don't fly a lot so it's a nice bonus

I didn't realize that! I have a few that have expired so I'll hold onto them and see if I can use them in the future.

Kind of a bummer that they aren't sending out new ones anymore.   It almost seems more important to reward people flying now that extend the expired ones.   

 

But yeah,  there might be a lot of tipsy people on those first flights that resume beverage service.

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?
