Iím also curious about this as I have a CRJ-200 flight on Friday. Should I pull it up on the ground or in the air or can it not be used?

Me three. I've got 8 of the lousy things, and I don't drink. They should call them something else and let you redeem them for other stuff, like food or internet. A drink could be worth 1, and they could inflate the other stuff as much as they wanted. Like Green Stamps! (Remember those?)

Pull up on ground or screenshot. On CRJ there's no wifi and thus they just write down the number. Know plenty that print one out and just reuse a
voucher due to no way to validate/track.

Agreed. I don't drink while flying. I try to give them away to other people, but it would be nice if there was some other use. I really wish they would stock some premium healthy drinks for purchase that these could be used for, such as San Pellegrino, coconut water, cold pressed juices, etc. I really think there would be a market for these kinds of products as people drink less and less sugar based drinks.
