The reason you might not be able to drink on planes anymore

It's part of a widespread revision of the industry's food and drink service to minimise interaction between crew and passengers and to ensure a safer journey for all. Though all airlines are requesting that passengers wear face masks on board, each is bringing in slightly different measures to help tackle the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, Virgin Atlantic — as well as removing alcohol on board — will be issuing passengers with 'Health Packs,' complete with face masks, surface wipes and hand gel. The UK's flagship carrier, British Airways, is suspending its alcohol service in short-haul economy only, where customers will instead be offered complimentary refreshments along with a bottle of water.
