MIAMI (CBSMiami) — American Airlines is telling international passengers to “have a drink on us.”
The carrier, which has one of its biggest hubs at Miami International Airport, will offer complimentary beer and wine to passengers on flights between the United States and Europe and Asia, as well as some countries in South America.
The free beer and wine deal starts Feb. 1st for passengers in coach. Beer, wine and spirits have always been complimentary for First and Business class passengers.
“Offering complimentary beer and wine to our loyal customers in all classes of service allows American to better align our product offering with fellow oneworld® alliance members and is another example of our commitment to enhance the travel experience,” said Rob Friedman, American’s Vice President Marketing.
The move comes as the airline emerges from bankruptcy. America’s parent company, AMR, filed for Chapter 11 protection back in November.
