Emirates has had to rethink their on-board displays after, it turns out, some of their first class passengers can’t be trusted.
The airline, which recently invested heavily in updating its wine collection, can no longer risk putting their best bottles on show, the New Zealand Herald reported.
At the end of the month Emirates will no longer display Dom Perignon, Hennessy Paradis, Tessero, and the Emirates Vintage Collection at the first class bar. Passengers instead will have to order these items from a bar menu.

Talking to travel site One Mile At A Time, Emirates said the reason for this change is “to avoid high value items being removed”.
There must have been some very naughty passengers recently.
Emirates’ alcohol selection is ridiculously extravagant.

The retail price of some of the bottles are equivalent to an airfare.
As part of the $698 million restock of the flying bars, Emirates has begun flying bottles of Hennessy Paradis Imperial cognac, worth about $4200 a bottle, or P2 2000 Dom Perignon as part of their first class service.

It is not yet clear if the reshuffle of the drinks cabinets was in response to incidents of badly behaved first-class passengers, or if it was purely a precautionary measure.
Passengers have until the end of April before these “top shelf” bar items go under lock and key.
The airline has been approached for comment.
