I can't imagine they'd use a non-ULR configuration (without crew rest) to fly to N. America... this might be a mis-load, does anyone know if EK has 2-class ULR A380?

SFO, at least pre-covid, was a relatively low-F load sector so it makes sense to cut F here and increase the load in Y. This is in comparison to say, LAX (stars & sheikhs) or JFK (banking & sheikhs),...

I'd go with the Moet if I had a choice. Moet's toasty and darker notes (compared to say, Veuve) would connect well with the bitters and oak in the rum.
If they have that random bottle of Taittinger...

Thinking goes that if you are traveling, you have to travel, and you're not price sensitive. So, while loads (pax) are in the crapper, you can at least keep your yields (Dhs/pax) up.

Also, DIH at B gates is a "safe" bet as you're max 20 minutes from any EK gate. If you are confident that the flight generally departs from A (looking at flightaware history), then maybe stay there...

Sazerac? No rye but Woodford + Paradis would work.
