Let鈥檚 be honest: Trekking across the country isn鈥檛 easy鈥 especially when you鈥檝e just spent hours聽going through聽TSA and have experienced a two-hour flight delay. One聽major聽airline gets it, which is why they just announced a new amenity that鈥檚聽taking聽their customers鈥 spirits up a notch (in all literal senses).

On January 18, American Airlines announced they鈥檒l be offering more flights between Chicago and New York as an expansion of聽their聽existing shuttle service. Now, there will be 15 flights between the two cities every聽day of the week. And best of all, the airline聽is making FREE beer and wine聽available to all passengers on these flights. Economy included.

Free alcohol on flights

But the good news doesn鈥檛 stop there. The increased O鈥橦are to LaGuardia routes also include extended check-in times. So instead of scrambling to get to ticketing per usual, you鈥檒l be聽granted a 25-minute聽window to get聽registered (if you鈥檙e not checking a bag.)

This new shuttle addition聽will start on April 4 and comes as the result of an increase in聽customers heading to the聽East Coast. These are some of the airline鈥檚 top customers, so聽ultimately, catering to them聽was a priority when it came to putting these changes into play. 鈥淲hen you fly frequently for work, anything that can make the regular commute more comfortable is important,鈥 says Alison Taylor, American鈥檚 Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Distribution. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 why we鈥檙e pleased to offer valuable time-saving opportunities with our Shuttle, including a convenient and consistent schedule and extended check-in times for you and your bag.鈥

A better聽airport experience and free booze? We鈥檒l drink to that.
