American Airlines wins awards for the best in-flight wines

Published:  23 July, 2008

The American Airlines received accolades in two categories in the annual Wines on the Wing International Business Class Airline Wine Competition organised by Global Traveler magazine.

The airline won Best International Business Class White Wine category, where it received first place for J. Wegeler-Erben Riesling Spatlese Bernkasteler Doctor 2004.

It also earned second place in the Best International Business Class Red Wine for its Chateau Batailley Pauillac 2003.

"Lauri Curtis, American's Vice President-Onboard Service, said: "We take great pride in selecting fine wines for our customers to enjoy in-flight and are continuing our efforts to take wine offerings to another level."

25 airlines submitted two white wines, two red wines and one champagne or sparkling wine currently on their international business class wine lists, along with the lists themselves, for a blind taste test. The winning wines were chosen by 36 independent judges.
