If there is one thing that makes air travel more bearable is drinks service. Its almost bliss time when the cart rolls out and you order your gin & tonic. Like a puppy, you wait for the steward or stewardess to hand you over your drink, and as you take it in sip by sip, the people around you seem to disappear and you slide into your own heaven as you literally fly through the clouds. Rarely is one just sufficient, so you are proactive and flag them down for another while you are half through the first one. Sounds familiar?
Well, to make your flight even more comfortable, some aircraft’s flying international routes now have a bar! Yes, that is right! A airplane with a freaking bar on board where you can go up and order your drink and maybe even risk the chance where a gentleman will buy you a round. So who are these dream come true airlines?
