Your next plane trip will be a lot soberer.

CNN reports that multiple airlines across the world are banning the alcohol drink service on flights. This is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Airlines in the U.S., Europe, and Asia are all suspending alcohol drink service. KLM in Europe, Virgin Australia in Asia, and two U.S. airlines are part of this.

According to CNN, this is part of a massive change in the airline industry that is changing the way food and drink service occurs. The goal is to minimize interactions between the crew and passengers. Face masks are already required on most flights.

In the U.S., Delta and American Airlines are both suspending alcohol service on flights. Delta will allow beer alcohol service on international flights but not on domestic flights or flights within the Americas, according to CNN. American Airlines is suspending alcohol and food service in the main cabin, depending on the flight destination and length. Alcohol service will be allowed on American Airlines during long international flights and all First Class flights.
Delta Airlines previously serviced Stewart International Airport and Westchester County Airport but has halted service temporarily. American Airlines is still flying out of Stewart Airport. Both airlines service surrounding airports like Newark, JFK, and LaGuardia. LaGuardia recently had it's Terminal B overhauled where American Airlines is housed.
