Qantas took out Best First Class Cellar and Best Business Class Cellar at the 2010 'Cellars in the Sky Awards' in London, reports the Herald Sun.

Run by Business Traveller magazine, a record number of airlines took part in the awards, which celebrate the best wines served in Business and First Class flights.

Collecting a total of six awards out of 15, Qantas dominated the competition, winning awards for Consistency of Wines Across Business and First Class, Best First Class White, First Class Red, and First Class Sparkling.
