The Wine List, Int First Class.

Wed Jul 18, 2012 6:04 pm

Just an idle thought about First Class travel, is any international airline boosting about the quality of the wine they serve?
I guess the average bottle in First is around the 30-50 UKL pound mark, wondering if any airline claimed a rare vintage in their onboard cellar? (A good marketing point).
Remember in days gone by that airlines advertised that crew had been trained by Sommeliers to advise customers on wine choice with their food.

Sure the food in First has improved leaps and bounds, has the wine kept pace?

The wine served in First on BA costs approx £50+ and the champagne typically around £100.

Hi!

I don't have an answer to your question but it reminded me of an article by American Airline's wine head in the excellent Airways magazine. I had a look and now it's very kindly up for free on their website:

Hope it might be interesting.

Many thanks.
