Wine tasting in the sky

Wine tasting in the sky

The German Wine Institute are partnering with Lufthansa to provides a wine tasting service for the airline’s first class international fliers. Passengers will learn the principles of wine tasting and sample a selection of German wines. You can then watch films about winegrowing while you sip a glass of wine.

Why it matters

Will we begin to see more and more airlines partnering with brands as a way of differentiating from other airlines? Could offering consumers a memorable experience become commonplace?

Attend your own funeral for $25

A rather macabre South Korean service lets people experience their mortality through a staged funeral and burial, resulting in a new perspective on the value of life.

For $25, you can attend the Coffin Academy.  Over four hours participants write tearful goodbye letters, draft their tombstone epitaphs, sit through their funeral, and then climb into a casket for 10 dark minutes.  The cathartic seminar lets people release long-held anxiety or grudges, and re-prioritize.  Many come away with a new commitment to their families or careers and a feeling like they have a second chance to create the life they want.  In fact, one South Korean business required employees to attend a similar fake funeral event to stimulate productivity.
