After a nearly two-year pause in providing a full beverage service, Southwest Airlines will restore their full beverage service including alcohol. These changes go into effect on February 16, 2022 onboard all flights.
Southwest Airlines describes that they’ll offer a full beverage and snack service will return onboard flights of 176 miles or more including non-alcoholic beverage options.
In addition, they’ll be introducing a new ultra-shorthaul service on routes 175 miles or less by offering a water-only ultra-shorthaul service.
In addition to our current offerings of Coke, Diet Coke, 7 Up, water, ginger ale, seltzer water, orange juice, cranberry cocktail juice, and coffee, Southwest Airlines will be bringing back Tonic Water, Apple Juice, Coke Zero, Dr Pepper, Tea, Hot Cocoa.
When it comes to alcohol onboard, you’ll see Miller Lite ($6), Blue Moon ($7), Lagunitas IPA ($7), Sparkling Wine ($6), Chardonnay ($6), Cabernet Sauvignon ($6), Vodka ($7), Lime Vodka ($7), Jack Daniels ($7), Wild Turkey ($7), Bacardi Rum ($7) and Tequila ($7).
It’s great to see Southwest Airlines bringing back beer, wine, and cocktails onboard flights later this month, after a nearly two year hiatus. The airline will also be accepting expired drink coupons from the past two years once the new service begins.
Due to the temporary suspension of our inflight alcoholic beverage service, any drink coupons set to expire in 2020 or 2021 will now be accepted through December 31, 2022.
