You no longer have to worry about expensive onboard drinks, reports The Huffington Post.
It turns out some airlines actually serve free alcoholic beverages onboard and not just to first class passengers.
However, the crew has the right not to serve drinks to anyone that already appears drunk. Besides, airlines can use drunkenness as a reason to exclude people from the passenger list.
It should be added that airlines have a reason to be wary of drunken travelers. In March, a passenger, who had had too many drinks, got so out of control that the pilot on a Thomson Airways flight was forced to perform emergency landing.
BNN introduces to 10 airlines that serve free booze:
1. British Airways
3. Air France
4. China Airlines
6. Singapore Airlines
7. Virgin Atlantic Airways
9. Korean Air
10. American Airlines
