    Haven't seen anything official and I haven't flown recently.

    I see plenty of reports of self serving mini bottles, but I really enjoy a beer on the ride.

    I’ve definitely had drinks over the last few months on AA. It has been in first class, but they’re serving up there.

    No idea why they’re not doing coach service. They’d make a killing. Maybe it has to do with having to hand over a credit card thereby creating more contact between the passengers and FAs.

    I'm sure it's the risk of transmitting disease from seat to seat. I think it's a huge bummer, especially for nervous fliers and people who like to have a couple 'pops' before arriving in Vegas.

    Delta is in first.

    Primary reason for not serving is social distancing. Plain and simple.

    One of the most important questions I’ve seen lately.
     
    One more Corona trip.
    Close to Circa for a day.

    You can always get good, usually accurate information on flyertalk. It’s the VMB for travel. Currently Delta is doing beer & wine for FC and C+ only and on longer flights, 900 miles I think. No ice anywhere. No meals but Flight Fuel boxes for the same group. You can get info on the particular carrier under their loyalty program in the forum section.
     
    Every trip will be a maybe until everything is open again
    Years on Wynn app pay off

    I had alcohol drinks served in first on 3 of 4 flights on my 4th of July Vegas trip. My reservation said they would be served to order only, in 1st only, but my dallas to Vegas leg they were just like "No drink service on this flight!" That was American airlines.

    I flew both AA and UA last week on short flights in First. Alcohol was available in First on all 4 flights. I had beer but I did see mini's being handed out too. The flight attendant on the first UA flight just handed me a can of beer; she was also on the second flight & brought a plastic cup too that time. The AA flights were morning flights but I did see the FA bringing alcohol to those that wanted it.

    Wife flew Spirit today to Orlando and said they were serving/selling alcohol, soda and snacks.
