JAL will serve Champagne Salon 2002 in First Class on its international routes from December 16, 2013, months in advance of the champagne's global distribution date planned for April 2014.
JAL has provided Champagne Salon in its First Class since December 2007 and is the only airline in the world to serve this legendary champagne in its flights.
Champagne Salon is a product of the House of Salon established at the beginning of 20th century. The champagne is only produced in years when the harvest is considered by the House of Salon to be of high enough quality. It is only released for consumption once it has reached full maturity, usually on average 10 years after the grapes were first harvested. In over a century of production only 37 vintages have been released for general consumption.
Passengers travelling on First Class are indulged with the high champagne "Salon 2002" with more delectable in-flight meal from "Restaurant in the Sky".
