Speaking of alcohol, have we heard any official news on when/if Southwest will accept expired drink coupons, and if so, what expiration dates they may accept going forward? For example, anything from March 2020 on ... ?

Very disappointed alcohol service has not resumed. 


I fly back and forth between Nashville and Orange County or San Diego almost weekly.  As of late, the flights have been completely full.  My thought is.... if you have a full flight, you should offer full service.

I'm ok with no alcohol on the plane so far.  My wife and I actually have civil conversations on our flights now.  😄  And even she has learned to wait until we land and have a nice beverage at one of the local brews at the places that sell beer.

We are currently on a SW flight and the flight attendant stated she thought June would be when SW begins serving alcohol again. My husband have done the airplane bottles with a drink from a restaurant and that worked just fine if you're desperate. Don't act drunk and don't be obvious because it is not approved of at this time.
