At Winspire, we're passionate about creating unique travel Experiences that turn into lifelong memories for your donors - and many of those wonderful memories start on a plane.

Whether you got to the airport at 5 a.m., are pretty much addicted to caffeine, or like me, always end up freezing cold when flying...a hot, fresh cup of coffee is the perfect way to start a vacation.

Ever wonder what kind of coffee you'll get? Do all airlines serve the same coffee? Is it freshly brewed? And for frequent fliers and discriminating connoisseurs alike, have you ever chosen an airline based on the coffee?

Read on for an infographic detailing which brands of coffee you'll find on 44 of the world's largest airlines.

Here in North America, airlines have strategically partnered with several major coffee brands to enrich the flying experience.

The United States' largest airline, American, serves Java City coffee, a smooth blend known for its slow roast.

Delta serves the ubiquitous Starbucks' Pike Place (medium roast) and VIA Ready Brew instant coffees, as does Alaska Airlines.

United serves Illy Premium Coffee, made from nine different Arabica coffee beans and serving around 72 million cups per year.

JetBlue runs on Dunkin - Dunkin Donuts Decaf or Original Blend coffee, to be precise.

A getaway to Hawaii truly begins on a flight with Hawaiian Airlines, and that's apparent in their coffee as well. They serve a custom blend called "Taste of the Pacific" which contains beans roasted in Oahu.

In Canada, Air Canada serves local-favorite Second Cup coffee. WestJet serves McDonald's brand McCafe coffee, and Air Transat provides both Brossard Instant Coffee and an accompanying snack.

My personal favorite is Southwest Airlines - many flights offer hazelnut creamer to accompany their tasty Community Coffee! The fact that the company makes a donation to the ECOM Foundation, a nonprofit that funds education and agricultural training for the coffee bean growers in Mexico, for every pound of beans used, is extra sweet.

Your turn - How many of these have you tried? Or do you order something else from the drink cart? Let us know in the comments below!

Strategy that Can Double & Triple Revenue from One Auction Item

Consignment travel packages can be extremely lucrative for your nonprofit, providing the ability to sell incredible trips multiple times, at no risk to you or your organization. Doing so benefits your event in three ways: Increase revenue: Double, triple, or quadruple your profit on a single package. It's a win-win: Making Bidders happy means making your nonprofit happy.
