Major Airlines Are Banning This One Thing on All Flights

Best Life Logo By Zachary Mack of Best Life | Slide 2 of 5: It will be a while longer before you can kick back with a cocktail on some major airlines. In a memo sent to flight attendants on Sept. 10, Southwest Airlines said it would not be restarting the sale of alcoholic beverages on board its planes, USA Today reports. The company says that the recent decision by officials to extend the current federal mask mandate for all passengers on airplanes and in airports influenced the decision to further delay the return of drink service.Representatives with the company said it would likely keep the current freeze on alcohol sales in place for at least the rest of the year. "With the mask mandate being extended to January 18, 2022, there are no current plans to bring back alcohol prior to January 2022," Randall Miller, senior manager of inflight ops, initiatives, and design for Southwest Airlines, said in the memo.
