Singapore Airlines, winner of Best Cellars in the Sky Awards 2021, will no longer offer Dom Pérignon champagne to its suites and first class passengers from today.
But champagne lovers who travel on the airline’s two premium classes will still have two Krug and Taittinger champagne labels to choose from.
“For your reference, with effect from 1 November, 2022, Dom Perignon champagne will no longer be available on board Singapore Airlines flights. We will continue to offer Krug Grande Cuvee and Taittinger Comtes de Champagne to all Suites and First Class customers,” said the airline in a statement.
Local media speculated that that Dom Pérignon was dropped mainly due to costs, the airline reportedly spends USD30m on its annual wine budget.
Singapore Airlines was named the best airline for wines in the “Cellars in the Sky Awards 2021”organised by the Business Traveller magazine.
It has won six gold medals in the awards announced in February this year, including the Best Overall Cellar awards, Best First Class White, Best First Class Red, Best First Class Cellar, Best Business White and Best Business Class Cellar.
However, it did not win Best First Class Sparkling, that gold medal went to Korean Air which serves Perrier-Jouet champagne to its first class passengers.
