A gift arrives from Sazza

Well, knock me down with a feather. Look what I got in the post this morning:

When we sat down to consider the perfect thank you for flying FIRST, nothing seemed to echo our commitment to your enjoyment as much as a gift of two bottles of wine - exclusively selected for you from the cellars of Berry Bros. & Rudd by Master of Wine, Alun Griffiths.

To accept this gift, please telephone Berry Bros. & Rudd and quote your personal code. Once you have agreed a convenient time and address for your gift to be delivered, all you need to do is... sit back with your wine... and enjoy.

Warm regards,

Sazza.
It comes with another brochure, in the same style as the one recently received about the improvements to FIRST.

Quite unexpected. Well done BA

Well that IS a pleasant surprise

What were the wines?

Have you recently flown full fare F then?

I think they must be the wines in the brochure, although it does not say so expressly.

1996 Chateau Montrose, St Estephe, Bordeaux
2003 Corton Charlemagne, Domaine Bonneau du Martray, Burgundy.

Last flew full F at the end of Sept, although I have a JFK in a fortnight.

Just had a look on Berry Bros.' website and it appears this represents about 150 worth of wine.

Now very pleased.

What a result

Good to see premium pax getting rocognition that they appreciate decent wines... All they need to do now is apply that to the Champagne in the air and we'll all be happy

I need to fly more
