International travel is difficult. Long flights, potential delays and hauling luggage around multiple airports are just a few things that happen routinely when you travel. But you can’t get across the globe if you don’t fly to some point on the map!
I ran across this article and thought it was really interesting. The airlines are rolling out the red carpet for first-class passengers these days. Not so much in the coach section, but a first-class ticket is something to dream about! Maybe one time in your life you will able to experience the luxury of a first-class trip.
Champagne is the ultimate luxury beverage. Everything about it screams fancy. So why wouldn’t the airlines use vintage champagne to lure customers into first-class?
According to a recent article from T & L:
“The change in selection is relatively unremarkable — except that Singapore Airlines also began offering the 2004 Krug to its first class passengers a few months ago.
Emirates is also giving its first class passengers a bubbly upgrade. Instead of serving the usual Dom Perignon, elite passengers on routes to Europe, the U.S. and Asia can sip on Dom Perignon 2000 P2 edition (an almost $400 bottle).
First class passengers should be aware of the “champagne wars” as airlines try to outdo each other with more expensive, luxurious offerings to lure customers.”
I’ve got a new item on my bucket list! Cheers xoxo.
