Fair point. But QF domestic J is not serving champagne, fine wine and scotch.Anyone who has found themselves at the bar on an EK380 at top of descent would know how much is wasted by not having a similar policy. It was heartbreaking to watch the Champers and fine wine go down the drain, we managed to rescue the Scotch by finishing the bottle - duty done!
I have never had sub $10 wine in QF J, Yering, Vasse Felix etc closer to $20 is the norm.Fair point. But QF domestic J is not serving champagne, fine wine and scotch.
We're talking about half a bottle of sub-$10 wine here. QF probably gets it even cheaper without WET taxes and what not.
It just seems messy and a risk to quality control to save a pittence. Ah la olives at AA.
Maybe they should buy 375ml bottles and stock different sizes based on expected demand.
BA serves chamagne in little bottles in euro-club.
Makes perfect sense to me. Any sensible business would do the same and then just ditch what is left at the end of the day. Having said that, there is nor reason why it can't be used the following day. We open wine at home and sometimes it isn't finished until 3-4 days later.Looks like another cost cutting technique for domestic business class on Qantas.

Aah, add to the left over wine to some left over fruit and left over fruit juice, I can see sangria being added to the offering. And then no-one will know if the wine has been mixed from different bottles.Good decision. I just hope they won't start mixing wines from different bottles like it was reported seen at the J lounge.
