Flying Dry for Snowden Chasers

Having given the world’s media the slip, CIA contractor turned super leaker Edward Snowden did not board his planned flight from Moscow to Havana.

To make matters worse, it appears Aeroflot have banned booze from the flight. The Russian airline’s website reports: ‘Starting from Feb 10, 2010, the sale of alcohol is suspended on flights to/from Havana’. So that’s a plane full of dry and scoopless hacks. What could possibly go wrong?
