Free drinks aboard BA Transatlantic - current position?

Hi

I'm heading to Vegas from the UK in April and was wondering what current experiences people are having with the free drinks (alcoholic and not) on BA flights in either direction.

On a more serious note, yes BA will offer a full bar service, and apart from the two or so drinks trolley rounds, you will be able to go and ask for another alcoholic (or non) drink from the galley. Las Vegas is of course known as a 'party' destination but I would advise not to overdo the booze, even before getting on the plane. The cabin staff will rightly refuse to serve anyone who they deem has 'had enough'. Being drunk and disorderly on an aircraft is a serious issue and can carry a VERY heavy penalty. (Not aimed directly at the OP of course, who seems perfectly sensible).

Are you travelling from Gatwick or Heathrow (Its the only USA route where BA fly from both airports)

If its Heathrow they will serve you alcohol as long as you can absorb it and either stay conscious or refrain from fighting or regurgitating.

If however you are on the party boat from Gatwick start drinking early as there will be a lot of competition from your fellow travellers and the bar is likely to run dry mid atlantic
