American Airlines Has Too Much Wine So They Started A Delivery Service

American Airlines, along with other major airlines, has seen a significant decrease in passengers due to the Coronavirus pandemic, causing them to be a little overstocked on some food and drink items.

Now for the first time ever, you can have some of the airline's award-winning wine delivered straight to your home through their all-new delivery service, Flagship Cellars.

For wine lovers around the world, wine provides a deeper connection to the places they enjoy visiting. Alison Taylor, Chief Customer Officer at American Airlines 

The decision to start delivering wine comes months after American Airlines made the decision to stop selling alcoholic beverages during flights in June 2020 in an attempt to limit the amount of interaction between passengers and flight attendants.

The delivery service offers two purchase options.

The first being a monthly subscription, which includes three different bottles of wine per month at a cost of $99 including shipping.

A Build-Your-Own-Case is also available for those who wish to avoid the monthly subscription fee.

Bottles will only be shipped while supplies last and you must be over the age of 21 in order to sign up.

Every year, a team of wine experts reviews nearly 2,000 different bottles of wine from around the world in order to select those that will join the American Airlines wine program.

The wines selected by the team have racked up quite the trophy collection for the airline, as they have taken home more "Global Traveler Wines on the Wing" awards than any other airline in the industry.
