Southwest Airlines Stops Snacks And Drinks For Now

If you’re booked on an upcoming voyage with Southwest Airlines, you might want to pack some food and an empty water bottle before heading to the airport.

In an effort to reduce close interactions between employees and the public amid the coronavirus outbreak, the carrier has suspended all in-flight snack and drink service until further notice.

The order went into effect on Wednesday, which Southwest says was made “in accordance with health officials’ recommendations”.

Fortunately for those who may cancel their trip, the airline doesn’t charge fees to do so and will let you use the tickets towards future travel.
