American Airlines says it will not resume alcohol sales in its main cabin until Sept. 13.

This date coincides with the end of the Transportation Security Administration's mask mandate for all planes.

The decision to extend the alcohol ban follows a recent assault of a Southwest flight attendant that resulted in a serious injury.

American Airlines says alcohol will continue to be offered in first and business-class cabins, but only inflight.
