Delta expands pre-select meals programme

As the weather grows colder, Delta’s onboard menu is heating up with fresh, seasonal selections and an expansion of the airline’s pre-select meal program.

The latter allows customers traveling in Delta’s business class cabin, Delta One, to request their choice of regionally-inspired meals designed by local chefs.

Following its initial roll-out in select markets, Delta will expand its popular pre-select meal program from tomorrow to include all outbound and inbound Delta One routes, enabling all customers travelling between Europe, Middle East and Africa and the United States to choose their meal in advance.

“Customer feedback plays a vital role in the development of our culinary offerings,” said Lisa Bauer, Delta vice president, on-board services.

“We know that customers value having control over their in-flight experience.

“Through the pre-select meal program, we’re giving customers the peace of mind that their first meal choice is available on board.”

Customers will receive an email from Delta three days prior to their flight, asking them to select their first-choice meal.

All that’s needed to participate is a valid email address, listed in the customer’s SkyMiles account or in their passenger booking record.

This winter, customers flying in Delta One enjoy comforting dishes including braised beef short rib, roasted chicken breast or soy-glazed cod.

Select European destinations menus will feature culinary creations by Delta’s in-house and partner chefs including James Beard honouree Linton Hopkins out of Atlanta, Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events out of New York, and chef duo Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo out of Los Angeles.

This is part of the airline’s ongoing effort to elevate and redefine the onboard culinary experience through fresh, local and seasonally-rotating food and beverage options.
