Mild...people should not be high when they alight as domestic flights cannot be that long

But here's when and how it will happen:

1) All passengers should bring sedatives to avoid being disturbed by noisy drunkards
2) All Female cabin crew must be replaced by Robots and Male Cabin crew should be trained in Martial Arts Laughing
3) All liquor will be stored in galleys which are also secured the same way as cockpits are.

Considering all these, alcohol on domestic flights may happen only after a few dozen years or so!! Rolling Eyes

I fully agree. Some people, especially Desis, just can't cope with the consumption of alcohol, without sheeding a bad name on all Indians. Some people on aeroplanes are especially aggressive, and we disis treat AI/IC attendands like shit occasionally, as we have subscribed to the "servant state" (and keep up caste structures).

That said, I would still permit alcohol, as the majority of good people should not suffer from the actions of some imbecile morons. I would establish an international database, where everyone, who has been observed with abuse of booze on air, will be recorded and denied boarding on every future flight. I think this is the best remedy. People need to learn how to behave, and if they can't, they should face the punishments

I am sure a person can do without alcohol for a couple of hours. We should continue with a ban on liquor on domestic flights.

On a lighter vein - a person can do without water for a few hours as well - so do we ban water Smile?

Seriously - it's a matter of personal choice. Most people in the western world are used to enjoying their meals with a drink, and a lot of Indians are used to that as well. So it should be a matter of choice, those who want a drink should be able to get one, and others - get their favourite "soft drink".

Of course there needs to be moderation (which there already is - you should see the size of the drinks they pour on SQ - barely a few drops Very Happy), and the crew should be able to refuse to serve anyone based on their judgment. Or just make it chargable - say Rs 200/drink or something like that - so most people won't touch it Smile

id pick mild.... BUT (yeah theres a big BUT here) of the fact that when on the ground passengers open the emergency exit doors.... imagine even 2 pegs or 2 glasses of wine down... the effect can be really bad... yes the emergency exit has happened on DN since it carries that community and that IQ of people... but hey! its a mad country!

cheers!

I think that might happen first on the domestic sector of IC's gulf routes.

I'll never forget the pax of HYD-SHARJAH flts. Was thankful to be on co. trip (HYD-AMD) that I was in J class. Rolling Eyes Very Happy

That's tempting. But I really go for it on international sectors. Esp where I need to sleep (US hub to Europe hub or BOM-Europe hub). The other sector I might just nurse it.

I agree 100%; if people want to drink a little let them. As long as it's in moderation it doesn’t really jeopardize safety. It then becomes the crew’s responsibility to judge whether or not someone has had too much- 1 drink is absolutely fine.

Not easy to monitor considering pax breaking rules and limited number of FAs to monitor that.
