This is why I do all my drinking before I get on the plane (not a pilot). For passengers flying in Delta Air Lines’ Main Cabin, it will cost a bit more to take the edge off. The airline announced that beginning on December 1st, the price of most adult beverages went up by a dollar.
According to Travel+Leisure, the increase applies to cocktails as well as both domestic and craft beers, along with most wine selections. The price of a glass of bubbly will remain the same at $9 a glass, but a Bloody Mary or screw top California red will now also set passengers back $9. A Budweiser now costs $8 (still slightly cheaper than at most Major League Baseball games) and onboard Heineken sells for $9.
