Wine in the Sky

Contra Costa Times came out with a story about American Airlines and it's far superior, imo, wine service in Business Class and above. It spends some time talking about the evolution of the service and how it's an overall change from the box wine that most airlines (and some still do) push out.

One of my major takeaways is how different your nose works at 35,000 feet (It doesn't), so you they have to serve wines that have a very bold taste and few subtle flavors.

Though there are some International airlines that do even better by serving an excellent list even in coach (KLM, Virgin, and Japan Air come to mind), American has really stepped up their offering.
