British Airways replacing champagne in Club World
Discuss today's stories:
Not sure if this has been mentioned before but it looks like BA are replacing champagne as the welcome drink in Club World with English sparkling wine.
Sound like a win to me, assuming it’s a good wine. Sticking my neck out, I’d say there’s more disappointing champagne out there than there is disappointing English sparkling.
The welcome drink will apparently be the Digby’s non-vintage. Which I think is pretty good. Agree it’s probably a good move.
Yes, that’s a positive and quite probably not a cost cutting measure. So many fantastic relatively new British food and drink products to rival traditional European ones.
Will this by in place next month? Agree it could well be an improvement on the current French offering – not to mention more fitting for our “national airline”!
I recall VS did this c. 7-8 years ago in UC. Can’t recall what it was they served, only that I found it nasty.
Maybe it’s worth a try, but in the interests of science I’ve sampled whatever English fizz has been on self-pour in the LGW flounge over the last few months and not liked any enough to finish a glass, always end up consoling myself with a few of the French, even though what’s been on offer seems to have gone downhill.
I tried an English sparkling wine at the Stratford-Upon-Avon Indigo and really liked it, it had the depth of champagne rather than being overly light and frothy like prosecco and cava can be. Can’t remember what it was called now though! I shall be sure to sample the BA offering on our GIB flight in a couple of weeks, purely so I can report back here, of course!
