All about Airlines and Airliners.

Good luck with this. As much money as the airlines are losing, unless a passenger presents a direct threat to the crew or aircraft they're probably going to fly.

Looks like it's in response to this incident although it seems both sides of the argument were instigating trouble.

So are we just banning like 49% of the population, or do we need to check to see if they have their admission stamp from a Trump rally?

Not going into further discussion as this is the wrong part of the forum for this, but now alcohol is banned on DC flights on AA.

I was under the impression there was presently no alcohol service on any domestic US flight.

That changed a while ago.

During the initial lockdown of airlines, no alcohol (or any other "real" cabin service) was happening. Not too long after the initial ban, the alcohol ban was lifted in premium classes. And then, generally lifted entirely, but quite limited. Still pretty restrictive in Y but about the same in premium classes . . .

I think the entire AA alcohol ban in/out of DCA is ridiculous. Just fly to BWI or IAD, no problem. Over-reaction by AA.

I debated on which forum to post in but since this is more aviation, since it applies to multiple airlines, than political went with Civil Aviation. Can you imagine if F/A's were too say that they wanted a total ban on any group? I flew once over in Europe on a flight that was carrying fans of a football club. I'm sure it wasn't representative of all fans, but those F/A's had there hands full for the entire hour of the flight.

ANC is right. During the spring and even into the summer, short haul flights had no service. Medium to long haul had varying degrees. I don't recall any "buy on board" being offered. Since fall though things have slowly eased as ANC said. Still pretty limited but at least you can get a drink of water even on a short haul flight now.
