Southwest Airlines has always been known as a fun and laid-back airline and for some of our Customers, and that attitude is enhanced by a fantastic onboard selection of adult beverages. We know it’s a treat to unwind on a flight with a glass of wine or a cocktail, and we want to fill you in on some changes brewin’ with our Drink Coupons.
Beginning tomorrow, September 1, 2011, Southwest Airlines Flight Attendants will only accept Drink Coupons with a valid expiration date. We announced last year that Customers would have a full year to use up the coupons without an expiration date.
As a reminder, Business Select Drink Coupons are valid only on the date of travel for the Business Select ticket. Business Select Customers may use their drink coupon on a connecting flight, as long as it is used on the day of travel printed on the coupon. Remember, even on that 8 a.m. flight: it’s 5 o’clock somewhere!
How do you get Drink Coupons, you ask? There are two ways Drink Coupons are offered:
– Business Select Tickets: With the purchase of a Business Select fare, you receive a premium Drink Coupon valid for your day of travel. You can read more about the perks of purchasing Business Select here.
– Rapid Rewards: Enroll in our All New Rapid Rewards program and earn four drink coupons following the completion of 10 one-way qualifying flights. The Drink Coupons expire one year from the last day of the month in which the coupons are issued. For example, if coupons are issued in October 2010, the expiration will be October 31, 2011.
Of course you can always use a credit card to purchase liquor, beer, wine or Monster Low-Carb Energy Drinks onboard our flights. We’re proud to have some of the lowest prices in the air for liquor, beer, and wine. And of course, all other non-alcoholic beverages and snacks are free.
