American Airlines Bans Alcohol on Flights to/from Washington, DC

American Airlines has decided to ban alcohol on flights to and from the Washington, DC area. The ban comes after protestors chaotically stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. The day prior, cabin crew reportedly struggled to keep passengers under control control as profane insults were exchanged during a flight from Texas to the nation’s capital. There were also several other incidents caught on video and posted on social media.

“At American, safety is our highest priority. We are working closely with local law enforcement and airport authority partners to ensure the safety of our customers and team members on the ground and in the air,” the airline rep told Fox News. “We have also increased staffing at DC-area airports as a precautionary measure and will not be serving alcohol on flights to and from this area.”

Besides the temporary alcohol ban, American Airlines is also taking other steps such as increased staffing at Washington-area airports “as a precautionary measure.”

The Transportation Security Administration, which has authority over US travel security, said it is “always on high alert” and has “multiple layers of security in place.” It declined to provide details for security reasons, Business Insider reports.

Based in NYC. Points/miles enthusiast for years and actively writing about it for the last two years at Danny the Deal Guru. I'm always looking out for deals. Making a few bucks is always nice, but the traveling is by far the best part of this business.
