NEW YORK – The price of alcoholic beverages on Southwest Airlines flights increased Thursday.
Starting March 1, Southwest raised the price of their beverages by $1 and $2, depending on the drink. It’s the first time the domestic carrier has changed drink prices since 2009, USA Today reported.
Beer will now be $6 to $7, wine is $6 and liquor is $7, according to airline officials.
Passengers with drink coupons won’t have to pay extra money, airline officials said.
Travelers who fly business select or purchase higher-priced tickets will get a free drink coupon on the day of their flight.
Complimentary drink days, where the first round is on Southwest, are Valentine’s Day (2/14), St. Patrick’s Day (3/17), Southwest Airlines’ birthday (6/18) and Halloween (10/31).
