The carrier will also re-introduce beverage service, including canned drinks, juice and water, in the main cabin of all domestic flights beginning May 1.
American also said that that later in the summer it will resume full main cabin service, as well, including alcohol and food for purchase.
“American’s reintroduction of beverage service is a careful and informed process to ensure everyone onboard feels safe and comfortable,” said Brady Byrnes, vice president of flight service. “When customers fly with American, they are trusting us with their safety. We worked closely with the union that represents our flight attendants, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, and medical experts on this process.”
