Alcohol is served twice -
The bar service trolley
The second is with the main meal.

However you can wander up and ask at any time.

Soft drinks you can get at any time as well, they tend to leave a stack of stuff in the galley so you can help yourself.

A good crew will come around with juice/water a couple of times. Some flights not at all.

They normally do a couple of drink rounds on every flight but you are more than welcome to ask one of the flight crew for more by either requesting one from your seat or popping to the galley.

One thing to remember is the pressurisation on the aircraft does effect how alcohol reacts with the body so if he's hardly every drinks then he may find himself a bit more "merry" that if he was on the ground

Thanks both

The affects might be a good thing, I think hes hoping to knock himself out for at least part of the flight. He gets bored on a 2 hour Europe flight so this is going to be an experience for him! Hahaha

OP. Maybe me but it has stood me in good stead for donkeys years.

On the day flight I wander to the galley at least every hour and have 2 glasses of water. OK it makes for more loo trips but it keeps me hydrated and I feel so much better for it.

I was just scrolling through Twitter and I see that Virgin Atlantic answered your question too. Pasted below... Bob.

@VirginAtlantic: @theDIBB It's great to see you're flying soon with us over a birthday celebration, we look forward to seeing you soon. We have specific times where drinks are served but you can always ask a crew as and when you feel. Hope this helps. twitter/messages/compose...nt_id=20626359

You'll find the crew are much happier if you wander to the galley, rather than pressing the call button.

Nice to see an official response on this via Twitter! DH and I like a drink or two (or five) on the flight but we always feel awkward about it - we take it in turns to go up and ask so we don't feel embarrassed I always thought it asw fine to ask but poor DH got really snapped at one year by asking for another drink so we've been wary ever since.
