Best Dry Airlines

Mon Dec 20, 2004 5:43 am

Hi All,

Does anyone know if there is an easy way to find out if an airline is "dry"?
...No Alcohol at all...

Do Airlines publish the fact?

A friend of mine has travelled from Aus & NZ to Europe recently on some really good airfares.

He found Royal Brunei to be excellent with service, food, etc. But he really needed a drink by the time he arrived.

I thought maybe they would be dry just by sectors... like into the mid east and the like?

Or are some airlines totally "dry" all sectors?

I would be interested to hear your preferences/thoughts/stories...

If your friend "really needed a drink" after a few hours on a plane, I think there's a problem.

At BI he could have brought along his own alcohol. Same goes if you visit Brunei, as foreigner you can bring along your OWN alcohol.

"Dry" airlines I flew till now:
Royal Brunei
Saudi Arabian Airlines
Kuwait Airways
Biman Bangladesh
Buraq Air (Libya)

If not mistaken, Lao Aviation (now Lao Airlines) never served alcohol, also not on their intl flights ...

While EK serves alcohol on most Middle-Eastern routes, I believe they don't serve alcohol on some routes to Saudi Arabia. Some one correct me if I'm wrong.
