Question :

Al sallamu Al laikoum Is it permissible
to sell air flights tickets of air lines
which serves Alcohol beverages on
board on demand? And what if we
recommended that they do not serve
any Muslim a haram product even if
they have requested so? Jazzakoum
Allahu khair

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The
Lord of the Worlds. I testify that
there is none worthy of worship
except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.

It is permissible to sell the tickets
which you mentioned in the question,
because the passenger pays the price in
return for getting on the plane and
travelling to the destination he wants
and not in return for intoxicants.
Although the price of the ticket includes
the services which are given to the
passenger, like drinking and eating, but
this is in general and not precisely on
the intoxicants. The passenger has the
right to choose the food and drink
which he wants; a passenger might
board and travel on the plane without
eating or drinking anything, but he is
not entitled to ask the airline company
to reimburse him part of the cost. This
proves that the cost of the ticket is
solely in return for travelling on the
plane.

Moreover, the airline companies that
serve intoxicants are legally prohibited
from carrying intoxicants aboard their
planes when travelling to some
countries like Saudi Arabia, yet the
price of the ticket does not differ when
compared to other countries to which
the airline travels and which is of the
same distance as that of Saudi Arabia;
all this again proves that the price of
the ticket does not have anything to do
with intoxicants.
Undoubtedly, offering intoxicants to the
passengers is forbidden as the Prophet
cursed (among others) the person
who carries intoxicants and the one to
whom it is carried. It is very sad that
many Muslim airline companies commit
this great evil, so whoever is able to
change this evil is obliged to change it.
As regards your last question, if you are
able to prevent serving intoxicants and
other prohibitions for the Muslims,
then it is an obligation upon you to do
so in compliance with the
commandment of enjoining good and
forbidding evil. However, if you are
unable to change it, then you may talk
to the company and try to stop this and
you will be rewarded by Allah for doing
so.

Allah Knows best.
