A restaurant experience at cruising altitude: New food and beverages are taking off in Delta’s latest refresh

Delta is also enhancing its premium in-flight dining experience by adding new service touchpoints in Delta One cabin, expanding our popular pre-select program and refreshing menus for customers flying in Delta One and First Class. 


Enhanced Delta One service
Starting Sept. 12, Delta One customers will enjoy a new, plated appetizer course to complement their entrée. While settling in and sipping on their beverage of choice, customers can enjoy menu items like dill-cured salmon with pickled vegetables or Mexican shrimp cocktail. 

Regardless of where one is departing to or arriving from, Delta One customers will enjoy an elevated and consistent experience. Starting Sept. 12, all Delta One coast-to-coast and flights to Hawaii will mirror the best-in-class service already available on international flights. This includes heated nuts (a customer favorite!), an expanded wine selection, a special appetizer, the option of dessert or a fruit and cheese plate and espresso service (on select aircraft) to round out the meal. 

Pre-select expansion 
Delta is expanding its popular pre-select program, which gives customers flying in our Delta One and most domestic First Class cabins the opportunity to select their main meal up to seven days prior to departure, offering a more seamless, personalized and elevated experience. Starting Sept. 12, customers in most domestic First Class flights over 900 miles can select from exclusive, regional or limited-selection meal options – only available through pre-select – in addition to the standard menu available on board. 

Exciting seasonal menus
Delta is also rolling out refreshed menus in the Delta One and First Class cabins on domestic and international flights. Customers will experience more regional, more comforting, and more chef-designed dishes – options that are sure to excite even our most frequent fliers. As always, customer feedback informs everything we do; these new menus were designed by our in-house chefs and nutritionists and in collaboration with expert partners from across the world. Using historical data on meal preferences collected from thousands of flights, we’re able to track general trends and customer feedback to deliver an excellent dining experience that’s fresh, consistent and tailored to what customers are asking for.
