TRAVEL TUESDAY – Wine

Have you purchased a great bottle of wine when travelling that you want to bring home, but have left it in the hotel for fear of it breaking in your luggage? Hoorah, you will never have to do that with a “wine skin”! You just insert the wine in the bottle-shaped bubble wrap bag and seal it up air-tight. The bubbles prevent it from breaking in-flight, but if you hit turbulence, the seal prevents any liquid from leaking out and ruining your clothes.

Or alternately don’t buy any wine and just drink on the plane.

Singapore Airlines remains the world’s second biggest buyer of Dom Perignon Champagne and spends $16 million a year on wine and $500 million on inflight meals. The airline’s first class passengers go through 20,000 bottles of wine and champagne each month (even though no plane has more than 12 first-class seats!) That’s a lot of wine per passenger. Although if you are on the longest non-stop flight in world – Singapore to Newark, N.J. there is a lot of time to drink during the 18.5 hours and 10,317 miles.
