United starts offering free beer and wine Internationally

Jump to last reply

Starting June 1, 2015, United will start offering free beer and wine on International economy flights to Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. They will also offer enhanced meals in economy. But will they turn off the fasten seatbelt sign during the ten hour flight? No word on that yet. American and Delta are already offering free beer and wine.

I was once told by a United flight attendant that United was the only U.S. based airline offering free beer and wine on international flights 14 years ago when 9-1-1 caused a big recession in the airline industry. Eventually, United stopped the free service, too.

With all the money the airline industry is making with the lower fuel prices, it is good to see enhancements when it comes to international meals in economy. All of the ads that United has been running on television lately reminds me of being placed on hold when I hear the music. Not a pleasant memory.
