Every aircraft needs a bar!
I recently travelled on V Australia, and they had a bar in business class. It was nice to get up, stretch your legs and meet some other travellers. The odd things was that once more than 4 or 5 of us grouped on one side of the aircraft, staff – very politely – pointed out that this was against regulations, and could we break up the group.
Well, not to be outdone, Korean Airlines is adding not just one, but three bars to their A380’s:
The airline is calling them “Celestial Bars,” and plans to add one to first class and two to business. Oh, did I not mention coach? That’s because all of us in the cheap seats are going to have to buy our liquor from the trolley as we always have.

The Celestial Bars in business will be self service and, since cocktails in the upper tiers are usually comped, that could make for some pretty inebriated passengers. First class will get a bartender. Of Korea Air’s 10 A380 planes, it’s uncertainly how many will get all liquored up.
Anyone for a drink?
