Yesterday evening, I've flown Delta (ATL - CDG / Coach / B767-300) and I've had to pay for all the alcoholic beverages.
In may, I've flown CDG/PVG - HKG/CDG (coach section) and the alcoholic beverages were free. (It was the same for CDG / CVG).
How is it for other US carriers?
I'll fly CDG - LHR - LAX - LHR - CDG in july (coach) and i'm wondering if it will be like AF or like DL?

Just a quick point to those bringing their own booze on board - if you're on a British aircraft, and you get caught, you'll have the drink confiscated, and there's always the possibility of being arrested as you've broken the air navigation order. And a quick reminder, no airline offers free drinks - if you don't pay for them on board, part of your ticket price has been allocated to cover the cost.

This is very confusing for people who thought that they've bought a ticket on AIR FRANCE only to learn that they are on DELTA. AIR FRANCE does not charge for their drinks, and yet, DELTA does. But you're theoretically on an AIR FRANCE ticket... would DELTA then only charge $ for their passengers and not AIR FRANCE passengers.
BEST thing for people to do. AVOID all US carriers if you want free drinks. Rather than second guessing who gives or doesn't give free drinks.. take a non - US carrier. At least you know that drinks will be free, and service will be good!
