Let's face it, air travel can already be a little annoying. But if you're avoiding the airline menu out of principle (we're looking at you, $9 cheese wedge and apple slice), chances are your mood after a 5+ hour flight will be less than optimal.
This is where Delta becomes the hero we all need. Just when we thought the introduction of basic economy was lowering the bar for air travel, Delta announces plans to offer surprisingly tasty, surprisingly free options on transcontinental flights.
By the end of April, Delta's main cabin passengers of the following 12 major domestic markets will not be so hangry when they land:
Starting March 2, 2017:
New York Kennedy to San Francisco
New York Kennedy to Los Angeles
Starting April 24, 2017:
Boston - San Francisco
Boston - Los Angeles
Boston - Seattle
Washington National - Los Angeles
New York Kennedy - San Diego
New York Kennedy - Seattle
New York Kennedy - Portland, Oregon
Seattle - Fort Lauderdale
Seattle - Orlando
Seattle - Raleigh-Durham
We know what you're really wondering... what are you going to eat?
Early birds will enjoy a Honey Maple Breakfast Sandwich or Luvo Breakfast Medley or fruit and cheese plate. Daytime flights serve a Mesquite-Smoked Turkey Combo, Luvo Mediterranean Whole Grain Veggie Wrap or fruit and cheese plate. Red-eye flyers will be given a breakfast bar during beverage service.
Delta's menu will be updated often to include seasonal and local varieties in effort to separate their offerings from the free airline "food" of the past. (No more pretzel bags, please).
