Delta debuts free Main Cabin meals in 12 US destinations
Delta is introducing complimentary meals on some of its longest domestic flights, including transcontinental routes between New York’s JFK (JFK) and Los Angeles (LAX)/San Francisco (SFO). The airline will be the only U.S. carrier to offer complimentary fresh meals from nose to tail on select coast-to-coast routes.
Beginning March 1st, Delta will offer complimentary meals in the Main Cabin on flights between JFK and LAX/SFO. On April 24th, the airline will expand complimentary meals to 10 other major domestic markets from Seattle (SEA), New York, Boston (BOS) and Washington, D.C. (DCA) including:
- Boston – San Francisco (BOS-SFO)
- Boston – Los Angeles (BOS-LAX)
- Boston – Seattle (BOS-SEA)
- Washington – Los Angeles (DCA-LAX)
- New York – Portland (JFK-PDX)
- New York – San Diego (JFK-SAN)
- New York – Seattle (JFK-SEA)
- Seattle - Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood (SEA-FLL)
- Seattle – Orland (SEA-MCO)
- Seattle - Raleigh Durham (SEA-RDU)
The enhancement is part of Delta’s ongoing multi-million dollar investment in the on-board customer experience that includes upgraded Main Cabin snacks, enhanced blankets, refreshed Flight Fuel food-for-purchase options and free in-flight entertainment. Main Cabin customers on long-haul international flights are also treated to complimentary beer, wine and spirits and sleep kits.
Delta’s new meal program will feature a variety of options for customers depending on the time of day of their flight. In the morning, customers will have the option to choose between a Honey Maple Breakfast Sandwich, Luvo Breakfast Medley or fruit and cheese plate. During the day, customers will be able to select from a Mesquite-Smoked Turkey Combo, Luvo Mediterranean Whole Grain Veggie Wrap, or fruit and cheese plate. For overnight flights, customers will be offered a breakfast bar during the pre-arrival beverage service.
In addition to the Main Cabin meal service, customers seated in Delta Comfort+ will enjoy a pre-arrival snack basket, which will be included on all 12 routes, and complimentary beer, wine and spirits for customers 21+. Additionally, a mid-service Greek frozen yogurt bar will be offered in Delta Comfort+ on flights from JFK to/from LAX and SFO.
