Delta Brings Back Free In-Flight Meals

Delta Brings Back Free In-Flight Meals

Delta is restoring free in-flight meals on domestic flights between New York and Los Angeles or San Francisco

Tired of your lonely packet of peanuts? Delta has got you covered.

If you’re of a certain age, you may remember “the good old days” when a hot meal onboard your flight was a given. Now, for the most part, airlines have cut corners in every way and your hearty meal has been replaced by maybe a snack.

Well, Delta is going retro and has announced that free in-flight meals will be included for coach passengers on domestic flights between New York and San Francisco and Los Angeles starting Mar. 1, making it the only domestic airline to offer this for coast-to-coast flights. In April, the same service will be extended to flights to and from Seattle, Boston, and Washington, D.C.

So, what are the goods? If you’re on a Delta flight in the morning, expect a honey maple breakfast sandwich or a fruit and cheese platter. During the day, customers can order a mesquite-smoked turkey combo or a Luvo Mediterranean whole grain veggie wrap. For overnight flights, passengers will get a breakfast bar before deplaning.

“We are all about making our main cabin experience the best it can be for our customers and offering free, high quality meals is a big part of that experience,” said Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President – In-Flight Service in a statement. “When we tested this concept, our customers loved it and appreciated it so we are implementing in our most strategic markets."


Delta responds to customer and crew feedback, adjusts food and beverage service on board and in clubs

Delta is responding to customer and crew feedback amid the evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic by temporarily moving to essential food and beverage offerings on board, while also adjusting in-flight service processes on all U.S. domestic and short-haul international flights.

These changes are an effort to lessen physical touch points on board. Similar steps are being taken on the ground in Delta Sky Clubs, and we are evaluating adjustments for long-haul international flying.

Taking care of customers and employees remains Delta’s No. 1 priority, which means we will continue to evaluate and make adjustments while staying in close coordination with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health organizations to ensure your safety.

While the signature hospitality that Delta crews are known for worldwide remains unchanged, beginning March 25 customers will start to see the following temporary changes on board on all U.S. domestic and short-haul international flights. Onboard service has been streamlined to include only the following:

  • Two snack offerings across Main Cabin and Delta Comfort+, as well as in First Class on flights less than 900 miles.
  • First Class and Delta One meal service on U.S. domestic and short-haul international flights greater than 900 miles will now be replaced by individually pre-packaged, non-perishable Flight Fuel boxes with two snack offerings.
  • Beverages will be individual bottled water only – no alcohol offerings – across all cabins, with plastic cups and ice also removed during this time.
  • Preselect and Special Meal service will be temporarily suspended.

Delta previously announced the following temporary onboard changes across all U.S. domestic and international flights:

  • All glassware, including coffee mugs and champagne flutes, from First Class and Delta One have been removed.
  • Hot towel service has been temporarily suspended in all cabins.

As always, customers are welcome to bring their own food and beverage on board to enjoy during their travels. A comprehensive list of all temporary onboard changes can be found at delta.com.
