More than half of British flyers would like to see the introduction of alcohol-free flights, according to a recent survey carried out by Skyscanner. 55 per cent of those asked confirmed they would happily abstain from their inflight glass of wine in order to stop other drunk and disorderly passengers from interrupting their journey. These statistics come in the wake of ScotRail's decision to ban alcohol on its trains after 9:00pm.
Flyers can currently enjoy a beer or something stronger on most long and short-haul flights with any airline. As in the pub, the main restriction is age; Britons over the age of 18 can buy an alcoholic drink to sip during transit. A spokesperson for Skyscanner, Sam Poullain, stated: "Many of us enjoy a tipple during a flight and see the journey as the start of our holiday." Despite the overarching negative response, 45 per cent of British holidaymakers answered that they still want a drink to kick-start their holiday before touching down at their destination.
