What is the legal drinking age for US carriers on overseas flights? The reason I ask is because I will be taking DFW-zRH on AA Dec. 30, with my girlfriend. I was served on United, LAX-HKG this summer, but I don't know what the laws are actually.

Well, I dont know about the US, but I have not had problems with alcohol being served for as long as I can remember (which is a long time). In New Zealand, its the SALE of liqour act, and as they are not really selling it to you, there is nothing to stop them from giving it to young people. Really, discretion should be used. Drunken passangers should NEVER EVER be served alcohol. NEVER!

Normally, it´s 21, cause the laws of the registration state of the airplane are counting, regardless over wich country your are flying!
If you don´t get something to drink on the flight, you´ll get enough in Europe!!!!!

Thanks for the info. I've been wondering about the same question myslef. I'll be on US Airways in January (Next month already!) going over and in May on the way back. But I'll be 21 in May so that part doesn't doesn't matter. I'll just be nice and ask and not dress like a white trash scurve(sp?) on the flights.
