For instance, American Airlines currently has removed alcohol from their main cabin on all flights "except on long-haul international flights." Meanwhile, Delta is not offering alcohol to anyone in any cabins on U.S. domestic and short international flights.

This is a bunch of BS. What's the difference between pouring someone a Coke and pouring someone a Coke and handing them a little bottle of booze to go with it? BYOB I guess these days.

This has been a super long time coming. I can't believe this policy wasn't instituted years ago, when the drunks first started fighting everybody.

As I like to say, "That's always one asshole who ruins it for everyone else." Granted it was more than one person this time, but the idea remains.

I hope VA is doing something to compensate for this, like making their food edible.

They refuse to fly over the Pacific Ocean?

Meh, you can buy airplane bottles at liquor stores and carry them on. Much cheaper than buying them on the plane

Carry on a liquid? Where do you live where that's allowed?

But how will I sanitize my tray table and hands if I forget to bring my Clorox Wipes (providing I can even buy any!)

"Virgin seemed to imply that the decision was made simply to minimize contact between customers and crew"

How is serving alcohol different than serving water, soft drinks, food etc., especially since they still have to process payment for those items as well?

IMHO, either cut off all services or  reinstate them fully.

If they fit in the ziplock they're good. https://www.hurleytravel.net/tr​aveling​-with-alcoholic-beverages/
Travelers may carry as many 3.4 ounce bottles of liquid (mini bottles of liquor are 1.7 ounces) that fit comfortably in one, quart sized, clear plastic, zip-top bag. ...


Tho Technically the FA has to serve it to you, however that's pretty much unenforceable, unless you're being an ass.
