Like JB said this has always been procedure. Coffee cups must have a lid on them and must be passed around the back of the pedestal. Some pilots are very adamant about this procedurePilots thoughts on this!
5th February, EASA published an Emergency AD on all Airbus A350-900 and -1000 aircraft, requiring the establishment of a liquid prohibited zone.samchui.com
On the 777 there’s an extra cup holder next to the rear flight deck window. FAs will usually put them there if we were busy to take them.
I suspect those pilots who let the coffee go over the pedestal never saw Fate Is The Hunter.
