    If you’re intent on boozing it up while you’re sky high, you might want to avoid U.S. airlines completely—with maybe the exception of American Airlines and Delta.

    Here’s a pretty good rundown on who does and (doesn’t) serve alcohol on flights these days.
    It’s fair to say that with airlines charging for basic sustenance these days that they wouldn’t give alcoholic drinks away for free.
    Apparently, many airlines still do, especially for international flights.

    It would have been helpful if they had indicated which airlines are dry and which of these allow people to bring their own alcohol. Also, details like Y+ alcohol policies and exceptions for elites (AA EXP) would also be useful.

    I did not realize it was permissible to bring alcohol on a flight. I also wonder which carriers permit this?

    We don't talk about domestic alcohol service on THOSE carriers after the infamous whiskey incidents in 2005.....

    Bad things man, bad things.

    I don't remember which ones, but a few of the dry mideast carriers permit passengers to bring their own, in some cases serving it to you. Needless to say, Saudia is not an example of this.
