Emirates will soon be serving Dom Pérignon vintage champagnes to travellers flying in first class, along with an exclusive  champagne pairing menu.

Two rare vintages will be on the menu: the solid and spicy Dom Pérignon Vintage 2005, which was released in April this year, and the dense yet silky Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 2003.

The champagne pairing menu has been developed in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Pascal Tingaud, chef de cuisine at Dom Pérignon.

This high-flying hedonistic experience will consist of six canapés,including cured duck with saffron poached peach; charcoal cracker topped with ash goat’s cheese and quince jelly; and mixed sesame coated tuna with wasabi mayonnaise.

"We have worked hard to fine-tune a culinary match with the exclusive Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 2003," reflects Joost Heymeijer, senior vice president of catering at Emirates.

"We place great emphasis on creating an experience onboard that our customers will cherish, and hope this new offering will help meet the high standards they have come to expect from Emirates."

they should serve this as a compensation for the crappy facilitites in Adelaide travellers who have no lounge option but use the domestic Qantas  lounges-what a joke!--- less than 2* facilities!

Yep, you deserve compensation because a foreign airline doesn't build a world class lounge facility for its one flight a day out of a middling population centre with predominantly leisure travellers.

Well obviously you think that people who live in adelaide are inferior,this daily flight business and first class is full most days so people who pay the same fare like MR bigshot like u would deserve the same,also Emirates don't even try in other major Europian cities either ,like Barcelona,Venice etc I flew so I know,and just to assure you I flew with Etihad from Frankfurt ,they only had one flight a day and still had a fabulous business class lounge so don't try to educate me what an airline can and cannot do!

I am sorry that you seem to be having a bad day and are a little nonplussed. My argument is about economics, not snobbery.  It does not appear that English is your first language so I apologise if you misconstrued my post. Adelaide is a delightful city, but it is a middling population centre and  expecting it to have the same quality airport facilities as Sydney or Melbourne is like me wanting Melbourne and Sydney to have the same quality theatre productions as Broadway or the West End.  An honest desire, but a fanciful one. It does not mean anyone or any city is "inferior", it just has something to say about market forces.  Emirates already seems to operate outside the laws of supply and demand and it is telling that it is the only airline that operates a wide body as big as a 777 out of Adelaide, and then only one a day where the front cabins are stocked with points redemptions.  There is no point comparing Adelaide to Frankfurt, the latter is the largest financial centre in continental Europe.

Well said Chris & PK. 

bl812 - I'm from SA, nice spot, but not an economic centre. If you need the lounge that much just go through Sydney or Melbourne.

I think South Australian's have a fine airport, try Lagos or Luanda.

I, too, travel First due to the nature of my business and time in a country, when out of the country. I'm just grateful for safe travel.

What determines whether a Middle East airline serves alcohol or not?
