American Now Offers Complimentary Beer And Wine In Economy Class


American Serves Up Complimentary Beer and Wine in Select International Main Cabins

FORT WORTH, Texas - American Airlines invites customers to raise a glass. Beginning Feb. 1, customers travelling in Economy Class on American's international flights between the U.S. and Europe, Asia, and certain countries in South America can enjoy beer and wine - compliments of the airline - as part of the inflight beverage service.

"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. "Our customers asked for complimentary beer and wine, and we listened. Starting Feb. 1, when a customer travels internationally onboard American, we invite them to have a drink on us."

Customers travelling on American-operated flights between the U.S. and Europe, the U.S. and Asia and onboard long-haul flights between the U.S. and Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay, beginning next month, can choose from a variety of complimentary beer and wine options. This is in addition to the full selection of non-alcoholic beverages available on these flights. Liquor will be available for purchase as it is today.

Selections vary but will include red and white wines, specially selected by American's wine consultant Ken Chase, and a wide selection of beers. Beer, wine and spirits will remain complimentary for customers travelling in the First and Business Class cabins. For more information on American's beverage service, please visit
