Singapore Airlines champagne choices in first class just got even better. Starting October 27th though they will be introducing a third choice of first class champagne to several routes: Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs. They’ll also be offering more caviar to first class routes.
Singapore Airlines Champagne: A Third Choice
One of the most impressive moments in Singapore Airlines first class is when a flight attendant offers you champagne at the start of the flight. Would you like some? Why yes. But that’s not the end of the conversation. With a smirk the next question is, “Would you prefer Dom Perignon or Krug?”
Now there will be a third selection to choose from. Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is one of the world’s great champagnes. Initially it will be offered through February 2020 on the following routes: Auckland, Beijing, Delhi, Dubai, Melbourne, Mumbai, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, and Tokyo Haneda.
Then the Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs will be offered on Brunei, Canberra, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Jakarta, London, Los Angeles, Manila, New York JFK, Paris, San Francisco, Tokyo Narita, and Zurich.
More First Class Caviar and Special Edition Amenity Kits
In addition Singapore Airlines will offer “an enhanced caviar service that will be expanded to more flights” than it is offered on today. International first class is really the only time I eat caviar, and I know I’m not alone. Lufthansa for its parts serves 5% of the world’s caviar and Singapore Airlines must serve a large percentage of its caviar, Dom and Krug.
Finally there will also be special edition Lalique amenity kits which include a series of crystal fish inside. That’s similar to what was offered at the end of 2017 and start of 2018 coinciding with the launch of their new Airbus A380 first class suites.
The Luxury of Choice
Unquestionably Singapore Airlines has one of the great international first class products. Admittedly their lounges are somewhat sub par. However their food and beverage program is outstanding. Their main meals are my favorite. And their wine program is fantastically curated. What could be greater luxury – beyond the quality of the champagnes, even – than the ability for passengers to have choice?
