    Dan Berger is a professional wine writer who flies so often that he usually drinks for free at 36,000 feet. His beverage of choice?
    Heineken.
    The problem with wine on most U.S. airlines, Berger said, is that it is bad, terrible, pitiful. And any frequent business traveller knows the importance of a fine beverage while passing hour after hour in the skies, especially after a few grueling days of work.

    The Coastal Ridge Chardonnay on WN is not even drinkable. The only time I have a Rum and Coke is when I fly with them since the wine is out of the question. I'm praying they change their offerings this year.

    I question Berger's appraisal of taste when he says his beer of choice is Heineken (and than wonder if someone paid him to say that)... but I should say I'm not a fan of wine critics. Isn't this why there are duty free zones in airports? [​IMG]
