Between fiddling with the stubborn overhead vent and jockeying for elbow-room with occasionally drooling strangers, it's likely that commercial air travel sparks your craving for a nice, soothing drink. This is why Delta Airlines, which recently made text messaging free on all fights, is increasing its already robust menu of complimentary in-flight booze with free glasses of prosecco.
Delta has long offered gratis beer, wine and spirits on international flights, but it's now beefing up its bevy of libations with the bubbly stuff. Lisa Bauer, Delta’s Vice President of On-Board Services, said in a statement that the airline wants to help you celebrate your vacation with the aid of clinking glasses and ample sparking wine:
"Sparkling wine is often the first choice for a celebration and we know how special it is for people to jet off on a trip so we wanted to bring the celebration to them."
