Am travelling in f through to London next month and was wondering what brand they are using now, in the good old days it used to be Krug but i have not seen it for a number of years, also any comments about the general wine selection.

The brand of champagne depends on the airline you are flying, and through to London there are a lot of options.

Qantas have been serving Dom Perignon 1996 for a while now. Cathay still have the Krug.

BA has not had Krug for a while now, reports indicate they now carry Pommery.

That list looks like business class to me.
Yep, those are business class champers, not what is/was offered to those who turn left.
