As always, Emirates promises a “perfect pitch” your champagne in the hands of a “highly qualified flight attendant”, in original glasses and at the right temperature. However, there are some mishaps.
In 2017, Emirates launched an internal investigation after one of the flight attendants serving business class passengers flying to Dubai was caught trying to pour champagne back from a glass into an open bottle.
The reasons for the flight attendant's violation of “quality standards” Emirates is still unknown, but well-wishers advised her to find a better use for the pre-poured champagne — for example, use it as an expensive handwash.
