Judges at another leading
wine-tasting competition have raised their glasses to the oneworld® alliance
and many of its member airlines.
oneworld is named the best alliance
for wine in the 2010 Wines on the Wing survey published this month by US
magazine Global Traveler – which confirms the findings of the Cellars in the
Sky awards presented by the UK’s Business Traveller in February this year.
Besides winning the “best
alliance” title, oneworld’s
member airlines also flew high in the Global Traveler Wines on the Wing awards
– just as they did in Business Traveller’s Cellars in the Sky.
American Airlines took the toast
as best North American airline for wines, as well as Best North American Red
Wine and Best North American Sparking Wine.
American, British Airways, LAN
and Mexicana were named among the top ten for Champagne and sparkling wine.
American, BA and LAN were also in the top ten for white wines, while Iberia,
American, LAN and Mexicana were in the top ten for reds.
Twenty six airlines submitted 46
white wines, 49 red wines, and 23 champagne or sparkling wines currently on
their international Business Class and North American premium class wine lists
for a blind taste test in the Wines on the Wing awards. The tasting was
organised by Global Traveler’s wine columnist and noted wine expert, Eunice
Fried, using 30 independent judges who are noted wine-industry experts.
oneworld was named the World’s Best
Alliance in the 2010 World Airline Awards and has been voted the World’s
Leading Airline Alliance for the past seven years in the World Travel
Awards. It is the only winner of this award since it was introduced
