Southwest Airlines is postponing alcohol sales on planes once more due to an uptick in incidences of rowdy customers.
The airline planned to restart serving alcohol on Hawaii flights next month and on other flights in July, a decision that was disputed by the head of the union that represents Southwest airline staff.
Southwest spokesperson Chris Mainz announced on Friday, “Given the recent uptick in industry-wide incidents of passenger disruptions inflight, we have made the decision to pause the previously announced re-start of alcohol service.”
According to Mainz, the airline has not set new dates for selling alcohol.
A flight attendant reportedly had two teeth knocked out by a passenger in one incident caught on camera over the weekend.
