Subject: [Full-disclosure] Southwest Airlines Ticket Silliness
Not sure if anyone posted this before; But I figured this would interest you guys...
Southwest Airlines has a class of ticket called 'Business Select'. This ticket typically allows you to board the plane first, and because SWA doesn't have assigned seating means you have your pick of the seats on the plane. But there is quite an additional benefit.
You also get a free drink ticket. But they seem to have forgotten something in the implementation of this: Being your drink coupon is issued to you when you print your boarding pass. It's also printed whenever you *reprint* your boarding pass!
So if you feel like getting drunk on your flight, just print seven or eight boarding passes, and you'll have a good flight. I tried this a couple of weeks ago on a flight from San Diego to Kansas City, and I had myself 4 free drinks no problem.
