Major Airlines Are Banning This One Thing on All Flights

Best Life Logo By Zachary Mack of Best Life | Slide 3 of 5: This isn't the first time that Southwest has extended its ban on the sale of alcohol. After announcing in May that the airline would resume serving in-flight beer, wine, and cocktails by late June, a violent attack from an unruly passenger that sent a flight attendant to the hospital led executives to postpone the return of boozy beverages."Given the recent uptick in industry-wide incidents of passenger disruptions in-flight, we have made the decision to pause the previously announced restart of alcohol service onboard," Southwest spokesman Chris Mainz said at the time. "We realize this decision may be disappointing for some customers, but we feel this is the right decision at this time in the interest of the safety and comfort of all customers and crew onboard."RELATED: The CDC Says Don't Go to These 2 Popular U.S. Destinations Right Now.

The extended alcohol ban is also the result of a spike in incidents involving disruptive passengers.
