The riesling was by far my most quaffed wine in the past few days. Full disclosure: my family runs a vineyard in Alsace just the other side of Colmar from Riquewihr, so I may be a little biased ;-)

For business class, the old world red & white wines are excellent IMHO especially compared to legacy operators who seem to be in a race to the bottom nowadays. For me, many of the wines in QR J...

There's often negligible difference in price doing LHR-HEL compared to LHR-HEL-OSL/ARN/CPH/GOT.
