I thought it might make sense to get deeper into the details of what’s changing by sharing an internal document that was passed along to me.
Self-serve snacks go away, recycling is being reduced, and passengers aren’t going to be putting their virus-laden hands in the bread basket or the snack basket. The reminder here that alcohol in mini bottles is not a disinfectant apparently needed to be said? If it’s less than 60% alcohol it’s not going to help. American Airlines doesn’t serve Everclear.
Since alcohol minis aren’t useful as a disinfectant the TSA really needs to relax its liquid ban. Three ounces of Purell is not enough. In the meantime though see if you can find some disinfecting wipes, because those are permitted through security checkpoints.
