I'm right under the approach to PDX. Just use little parachutes and toss it out the DB Cooper hatch.

AA getting confused about their acronym?

American Airlines can't be the only one.  Are we going to have sommeliers do wine tastings between Delta, American, Alaskan, Southwest, etc?

Would Southwest be considered the 2 Buck Chuck?

Instead of the Judgement of Paris will this be the Choice of DFW?

Since it's all those little bottles, does a case come in a shoebox?

/Okay, I'm done.

These are apparently the bottles they serve in Flagship First/Business, so they actually pour from real bottles into actual glassware.

Don't recall any exceptional vintages, though.

To maximize storage volumes they're keeping it in the lavatory tanks.

I know a bunch of American Airlines pilots.

This could be regarded as a "strategic move".

Just wait for their home delivered meal kits.

This is Fark, if it has a higher ABV than water, someone will buy it.

Except when you're on an AA flight. Helps you forget about it.

So we can pay $99/month to be able to PAY for their wine?  WHERE DO I SIGN UP!?

If airplanes don't already have an actual DB Cooper Hatch, the FAA needs to mandate that.
