    It's only being offered as a 'tasting' for two hours, on Thursdays, at selected SCs. I'm thinking they got paid a pretty penny to help promote the brand. And, it might be featured in an inflight cocktail, if the response is good.

    I interpreted it to be offered as standard offering. What makes younthink it will only be available during tastings?

    Doesn't alcohol "empower" some people to THINK they are DYKWIA's regardless of elite status or lack thereof?
    :cool:

    Hopefully the training will cover personality as well...I find most (but not all) of the SC bartenders to be pretty disinterested...

    Ryandc99, the email I received says this:

    Take time out to experience two award winning brands before takeoff. Join us for Tequila Avión-hosted summer tequila hours at any of the following Club locations on Thursdays from 5-7pmto try complimentary, professional mixologist-created cocktails.
    • Atlanta (Concourse A center 2ndlevel, T6, B25, & C37)
    • New York-JFK (T2 & T3 gate 11)
    • New York-LGA (Concourse near gate 2)
    • Detroit (Terminal across from gate A38)
    • Boston
    • Miami
    • Los Angeles*

    But, perhaps the tequila will be available during all hours, and just the special drinks will be available during the tequila hours.

    Thats the way I understood it... available during all the hours, but only special cocktails during certain hours.

    I guess DL just has me sooo conditioned to expect restrictions, terms and conditions, that I automatically expected them here :oops:

    I don't mind the special tequila. But why not in all SCs? That's a bit odd. As to the special cocktail on board, it started out as a good idea when Gerber was making them. Now the "special" cocktail is JD/Ginger Ale. Seriously?

    True, but you mean Randy who isn't randy. The good tequila is very good....reminds me of cognac and before learning about it, I never would have guessed that tequila could be like this.

    This sounds like the test? Did you try for four?

    I think this is good news. I know others didn't like the margarita, but it was my 2nd fav. The mojito was my fav. There was one FA who is MEM based who'd bring fresh mint for them. That was cool.

    Perhaps the amateurs will gravitate towards the tequila, leaving the Woodford for the professionals.

    I was a little slow, so I didn't get a chance to try for #4. I honestly liked the mojito's better.
