For the longest time I remember, Jet Airways has been serving the same Champagne on their Premiere flights across the globe. Billecart Salmon Brut has been the brand I most recognise with Jet Airways (due to the frequency of my trips with them!).
On flights to London however, Jet Airways used to serve Bollinger Special Cuvee in Premiere and Bollinger La Grande Annee 2002 in First Class.
This is now changing, with Charles Heidseik being the new Champagne of choice on Jet Airways Business Class (Premiere) to London on board their five daily flights from Mumbai and Delhi to London Heathrow on board the Boeing 777-300ERs.
But that is not all. The other route which gets regular widebody traffic, the flights to Hong Kong will also see a switch on champagne. Jet Airways used to serve Billecart Salmon Brut on this segment in Premiere. This is now changing, with Taittinger being the new Champagne of choice on Jet Airways Premiere to Hong Kong on board their daily flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Hong Kong.
Taittinger is one champagne I love personally, so it is great that it has found its way on the Jet Airways menu on some flights.
On other routes so far, you continue to get Billecart Salmon Brut, a champagne I just pass now when it is served to me because it does not go well with my taste buds.
What do you think of the new champagnes making their way on Jet Airways international segments? Upgrades or downgrades for you?
