    I can say hand on heart say that on BA longhaul flights that I have worked in the past fifteen years, I can easily count on one hand how many we’ve run out of champagne on.

    On a 777 we carry 20 bottles for 48 seat config. On the 747 (mid J) it’s the same. On the 747 ‘high J) it’s 30 bottles.

    It wasn’t your airline, RF.

    BA are behind in many aspects of the premium experience but an area we generally excel at are plying the public with booze 🙂

    Could it have been QF?

    RF, I am fascinated that the number of bottles of champagne seems to be in multiples of 10. When I buy the stuff (not often) it is in multiples of 12. Who gets the two left-over bottles in each case?

    BA?!

    I order Asian vegetarian meals on BA which, are quite good but they come with a rather bland/vegan dessert or fresh fruit choice. I instead ask them to serve me the regular dessert options and I am told that “we ran out”

    Process of elimination – Oman Air? (Given their 08:25 departure from LHR would also put you around IST at lunchtime).

    Only heard good things about them in general though.

    If not Oman Air, Gulf Air?

    No, not a clue. The German word is Dumm-kopf, plural would be Dumm-köpfe
