Delta Air Lines raises drink prices, following increases by American and Southwest

It’s going to cost more to toast your trip on Delta Air Lines.

The airline is raising the price of alcoholic beverages by $1 beginning Dec. 1. The new prices:

• Domestic beer: $8

• Craft/imported beer: $9

• Wine: $9

• Liquor: $9

• Specialty cocktail: $9

The only drink price that will remain the same is sparkling wine, at $9.

Passengers buying Delta’s pricier Comfort Plus seats in economy, which include extra legroom, dedicated bin space and priority boarding, receive free beer, wine and cocktails, as do travelers in premium cabins.

Delta’s move follows increases earlier this year by Southwest Airlines and American Airlines.

United Airlines has no plans to raise its drink prices, according to spokeswoman Rachael Rivas. The airline charges $8 for craft beer, wine and spirits, $9 for premium spirits and liqueurs including Bailey’s Irish Cream, and $10 for specialty cocktails including a Trader Vic’s Mai Tai on flights to Hawaii.
