Whine Country

The tabloids make hay with stories about people having aneurysms about orders-gone-wrong at McDonald’s or Sonic or the Bombastic Bacon Barn. However, such behavior is not restricted to a particular class. Evidence? Some Business Class passengers (Chris Lehmann would call them Predator Class) on a Garuda Indonesia flight out of Sydney broadcast their apoplexy when informed by the flight attendants that they had no more wine to give, though they did have handwritten menus to distribute. The latter were not perceived as a bespoke touch.

Paul and Christian, who do not give their last names, state that “the wine ran out. . . You come on a flight like this, business class, you expect nice wine.”
