On short distance flights I do not normally drink. I do however, drink on international flights and have had a few occaisions where I was a little past giddy, but not "drunk", I think. Actually I just get really really sleepy which is great for a transatlantic flight. One warning: don't drink Champagne. No matter how tempting it might be when offered free Champagne, the carbonation and alcohol create massive headaches. cheers!

I'm flying around 15-25 RT's a year, on 75% of my flights I was drunk, not tipsy, not giddy but drunk. Always I'm starting at the airport bar so when I'm geting into my seat I'm tipsy, then is time for some heavy liquor.
I didnt drink only on United Express J32 because they dont have any service. I feel safe when I'm drunk hehehe

Dufo, The Airline is right, the higher in
altitude you get the worse and drunk
faster do to the lack of oxygen in the
blood being transported to the brain.
I have seen a pilot one time take off
drunk and crash he is plane into the
side of a fence near the runway. He
rotated and then decided to come back
and swerve to the left into the taxi lights
and into the fence. The idot survived and
he was a doctor! Plane was worked and
the prop was bent do to the impact.
