Ths is often (always) policy on (UK) airlines as it allows the crew to monitor your intake so they can cut you off if they think you've had too much, something which is hard to do if everyone has a bottle of smirnoff from duty free hidden in their bag!! (It is infact a crime to be drunk on an aircraft (definitely British, not sure about aircraft registered elsewhere)).
