Well, looks like Southwest Airlines isn’t taking anymore chances on passengers and alcohol. Due to a multitude of mishaps and unruly behaviors from passengers aboard Southwest Airlines, the popular airline company has decided to not serve flyers any alcohol until at least 2022. On Monday, September 13th a spokesperson for the airline sat down for an interview with Travel + Leisure and explained the decision to put a hold on alcoholic beverages.
In addition to the uncouth flyers, Southwest said its decision works alongside the federal transportation mask mandate, extended until at least Jan. 18, 2022. Most of the people to blame are those who refuse to follow along with wearing a mask. There have been 3,800 reports of unruly behavior, and 73 percent of those reports come from people who wouldn’t wear a mask.
Looks like the one for all rule applies here. Prepare to pay the bartender inside the airport if you’re looking for a drink before the flight if you’re choosing Southwest for your destinations until 2022.
