Alcohol free flights welcomed

UK travellers want to see the introduction of alcohol free flights because they don’t want to be disturbed by drunken passengers, according to a recent survey.

The survey by Skyscanner reported not that many people would much rather for there to be no alcohol on board whatsoever, as 55% voted in favour of dry flights in order to minimise the risk of drunk and disorderly travellers causing trouble and disrupting flights.

Sam Poullain spokesperson for Skyscanner said, “Many of us enjoy a tipple during a flight and see the journey as the start of our holiday. We were surprised to see how many would be happy to wait until they reach their destination before taking their first holiday drink if it means avoiding a few hours sitting next to someone who’s clearly had one too many.”

However, despite just over half of the 1,000 travellers surveyed preferring dry to disruptive flights, 45% still want to enjoy their first tipple of the trip mid-air.
