Spirit Airlines Is Now Serving Friends Fun Wine From Aluminum Cans
Wine lovers rejoice, someday all airlines will serve wine from a can on flight…at least we hope. Low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines is thinking outside of the bottle by serving wine from cans that contain little more than the mini-bottles. The airline is offering white moscato or strawberry moscato wine from Friends Fun Wine. Mini bottles of Sutter Home wine are still available.
According to NBC News Travel:
The airline likes the canned wine better but not because of taste. Wine in cans weighs less and is easier to store. Spirit CEO Ben Baldanza admits there might be some jokes but is sure passengers will spend $7 for a can – or $12 for two cans – to sip some wine.
Some wine lovers are a bit skeptical, “My wine consumption stops at a plastic bottle,” said Ben Granucci, an aviation enthusiast from New York. “I just don’t want that metallic taste in my mouth.”
Would you enjoy a bit of vino on your next flight?
