Paired really well with the salmon avocado toast this morning.

Thanks again for sharing!
Awesome!

I was supposed to fly FLL-CLT-LAS today but due to IROPS ended up routing MIA-LAX-PHX-SGU (not bad for a $63.25 Amex Plat fare with upgrades cleared on all legs including flagship on the 777 TCON... cheaper than a half-bottle of Krug, lol). I only had 10 min in the AC though so no Krug for me in MIA. But if my MIA-LAX hurries up and leaves, I might have another in LAX.

I did find out that they sold 3 bottles this morning (by noon, when I popped in), so evidently MIAFlyer was not alone! I tried asking how deep the supplies were but couldn't get a straight answer. It does sound like they're selling it for just slightly above cost.

I wonder what their cost is on these and, being there seems to be demand, if they'll keep it on for purchase in the future.

Currently in MIA D30 and could verify that there is Krug at the bar.

Hahaha, the bartender (Tony, nice guy) said to me, "yeah, sounds like they're advertising it now" -- I guess that was you!

My MIA-LAX ended up deplaning for maintenance, so I spent another hour in the lounge from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. and chatted a bit with a manager. He wouldn't tell me how deep the supplies were, but when I asked if it was a week-or-two kind of situation he said "no, probably two months." So you might be in luck!

AA is making approximately $9 per half-bottle on the Krug. They are liquidating all the FFD bottles of wine and champagne until they run out and then that's a wrap.

We just missed each other! I didn't want to rush the Krug given the uncertainty of whether and when we would reboard our MIA-LAX, so I did the $11 flight of red wines, which is a great option:

Presumably that's after tax. (I think I paid ~$71ish at both MIA and LAX.)

anyone have any thoughts on whether or not any of the other wines are worth going out of the way for?

Some folks above chimed in on the Groth cab and a few others. Several really decent selections. I enjoyed all 3 on the red flight, and I thought it was a great deal at $11. But I wouldn't reroute just for that

Kistler generally does some nice stuff, though Iíve only had their reds, not sure what the chard is like.

I've enjoyed plenty of Kistler chardonnay in FFD and have always enjoyed it. Nice flavors of lemon, vanilla, and caramel. One of my favorite chardonnays to drink by itself. The bottle price is actually quite good relative to the prices I'm seeing online.

The Groth cabernet is also very good. It is one of my go-tos for casual drinking at home and I was happy to see it in FFD.

I'm pleased to report my purchase of Krug last week at the MIA AC automatically credited as part of my AMEX Airline Fee reimbursement two days later.

For the Krug aficionados here, the bottle I received was also from the 168Ťme (based around the 2012 harvest) and was drinking beautifully.

Interesting - I think I may have commented upthread about issues with this in the past. I suppose either Amex has changed tack, or my problems have been with DL SkyClubs as opposed to AC's (and possibly related to SC's operated by third parties, e.g., Sodexho, where the charge does not post with the airline as merchant).
