Airport Workers Around the World Will Protest October 2 — Here’s Why
American Airlines raising drink prices
Get your “cheap” drinks in while you can.
On October 1, American Airlines is increasing prices for beer, wine and liquor by $1, according to USA Today.
A spokesperson for the airline said that in-flight beverage options have improved over recent years. While you could spend $8 to get a Bud Light, you could also opt for something like Goose Island IPA, Samuel Adams Octoberfest or Fat Tire Belgian White for the same price.
Spirits will run $9 with options like Bombay Sapphire gin, Disaronno Amaretto and Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, among several others. Wine is the same price and includes cabernet sauvignon, grenache and sauvignon blanc. Select longer flights also offer prosecco.
