Champagne in hold lugage
I have read conflicting advice on whether the pressure difference between ground and cruising altitude can make a Champagne bottle break in hold luggage.
I have it in a polystyrene bottle-box and wrapped in bubble-wrap so breakage from impact is not an issue - anybody got first hand experience? I intend to fly with a special bottle tomorrow so any advice would be appreciated!
I've traveled with champagne (and other types of bublies) in checked luggage with NO problem at all (crossing fingers and burning incense )
Just let it rest a little bit before enjoying.
I've done it a few times with no problem. I would think breakage is the bigger risk, and it sounds like you have that covered.
