Champagne in hold lugage

Steve_K | Apr 22, 2010 06:29 AM

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!
