Salad and Wine on Austrian Airlines

On Thursday Austrian Airlines (AUA) was purchased by Lufthansa. Lufthansa promises to keep many of the good things about Austrian Airlines (although I am not convinced that the bright red uniforms their staff wear are really one of the good things with AUA, but I digress).

One of the things I like best about Austrian is that they still give you food and it's not bad. The food is prepared by Do&Co. The photo above is the 'salad box' that AUA served on my recent flight to Brussels. They also serve Austrian wines and I was able to taste the "Lois" Grüner Veltliner 2008 from
the Loimer Winery in the Kamptal region of Austria. Since moving to Austria I have grown to love Grüner Veltliner and have wanted to try the Lois for a while. It was quite nice, much better than the generally bland Chardonnay wines served on US airlines.

I certainly hope Lufthansa keeps the Austrian food and wine selection!
