Don't Expect to Enjoy an In-Flight Beverage Anytime Soon

Thanks to coronavirus and the travel restrictions it has caused, gone are the days of being able to enjoy an alcoholic beverage in-flight.

CNN announced on June 16 that airlines "are suspending all or part of their alcoholic drinks service in response to COVID-19." So no longer can we ease our fear of flying with a cocktail in the sky or celebrate before touching down on our next great adventure.

This comes after Frontier Airlines became the first U.S. carrier to require temperature checks before boarding by staff and flyers. Months back, both American Airlines and JetBlue required passengers to wear face masks. Now, restrictions are becoming increasingly stricter as more and more people resume their travels.

As frustrating as this may seem, it's important to remember that this is being done to improve passenger safety.

According to The Points Guy, "American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue and other carriers are temporarily suspending in-flight drink service in order to minimize coronavirus exposure and spread."

Some airlines, like JetBlue, are offering pre-sealed snack and drink bags before a flight. Other carriers are looking into passing them out upon landing.

We're entering a new era of travel and who knows what will happen next.

Could being tested for coronavirus before you fly be the next trend? We're sharing what we know HERE!
