alcohol in economy?

I can't find a relevant thread on this, so I started a new one.

I'm thinking about flying Chicago -> Dublin in economy. Is it true that Aer Lingus does not have complimentary alcohol on board? I'm quite surprised since Aer Lingus is usually the more expensive option.

Thanks!

They neatly duck the question on their website, don't they... https://www.aerlingus.com/experience...limentary-meal
It does specify "bar service" but doesn't specify if it's paying.

exactly! to dive deeper,

"It’s our pleasure to serve you a delicious complimentary meal on every transatlantic flight. Soft drinks and water are also complimentary, and we carry a full bar with alcoholic beverages and snacks from our bia treats range at reasonable prices."


"we carry a full bar and snacks at reasonable prices"

Is it reasonably priced full bar and snacks?
or is it bar + reasonably priced snacks?

There was still free beer and wine on Aer Lingus TATL flights in 2000, the first time I flew with them. I don't remember exactly when it stopped being free but it hasn't been free for over 10 years.

I would be surprised if they bring it back free again. They make a fortune from selling beers,wines,spirits onboard TATL.
