Recent history tells that the abortion of an airline now called UA chooses the cheapest manner of either of the prior entities, and makes it the new "thing you'll like."

There hasn't been a lot of derivation from this theme.

Haven't updated this thread in awhile, but this seems to be getting worse, not better. Just this week on a flight departing IAD, I was told by the FA that they did not load any alcohol on the flight.

The plane was on the ground at IAD for an hour, so not trying a quick turn or anything. Leaving a hub, so not the previous flight taking all the drinks.

Is alcohol catered on a whim for UAX?

I was told on a recent return from SJU that they only had 2 or 3 bottles of vodka left (pre-take-off) because they had served a special vodka cocktail on the way down the night before. It sounded dubious as I've flown that route lots of times and never heard of any special cocktail.
