Travelers will have to endure flights without their favorite booze just a bit longer. According to CNN, American Airlines is joining a chorus of U.S airline officials and actual airlines suspending booze following what happened on Southwest Airlines.
“Flight attendants are on the front lines every day not only ensuring our customers’ safety, but are also calming fears, answering questions, and enforcing policies like federally-required face masks,” said Brady Byrnes, managing director of flight service at American, in a memo to flight attendants obtained by CNN. “Over the past week we’ve seen some of these stressors create deeply disturbing situations on board aircraft,” the memo said. “Let me be clear: American Airlines will not tolerate assault or mistreatment of our crews.”
