Complimentary International Economy & Economy Comfort Meals:

Only certain routes offer complimentary meal service in Economy. All transatlantic and transpacific flights include complimentary meals in the economy cabin. Most flights to South America also include meal service. Flights to Canada, Mexico & Central America generally do not. A good rule of thumb is that if the flight offers BusinessElite service (NOT "business class" or "first class") then there are probably complimentary meals in the economy cabin. Note that no flights from the US mainland to Hawaii offer complimentary meals, including ATL-HNL. Meal service details can be found in your reservation on delta.com or in the service details when booking the flight.

Breakfast:

Need info here about international economy breakfast.

Lunch/Dinner:

Choice of entree:

1) A vegetarian pasta dish (such as ravioli)
2) A chicken dish (such as chicken & mushrooms with rice)
3) A salad with cold chicken (such as greek salad)

Meals are served with a sides such as salad, roll, and desert.

Additionally there will be a pre-arrival snack served:
Morning arrivals: light breakfast (might include things like fruit, hot egg wrap, pastry, yogurt, etc.)
Afternoon/evening arrivals: light meal (such as small turkey sandwich, small pizza, etc.)


On longer flights a mid-flight snack may be served such as ice cream or a light sandwich.

A choice of Biscoff cookies, peanuts or pretzels is offered during beverage service.

On flights that offer complimentary economy class meal service, special meals may be ordered through delta.com or by calling customer service. See details below.




Transcon BusinessElite Meals – Chef Michael Chiarello

See domestic meals further below for more information. This is a signature service for routes such as JFK-LAX/SFO/SEA. It should be a three course meal, however DL.com does not specify specific meals unlike International BusinessElite. These transcon flights also feature Starbucks coffee.

FLIGHTS WITHIN THE US, CANADA, MEXICO, THE CARRIBEAN, ETC. - MEALS

These do vary from flight to flight. In First, there are actual plates provided with silverware and glasses for beverages. In Economy, meals are served on plastic trays (for that individual meal only) and are provided plastic utensils.

The meals you may see listed here are general examples and your flight may not have the option(s) listed here. These are solely from the words of fellow FTers (and please remember the times are based upon the flight's departure time):

Longer flights, such as ATL-HNL (in F only)

Rhere typically will be an appetizer/salad course, the main entrée, and then dessert. There will be a lighter meal (such as a pizza/burger/salad/etc.) served closer to landing. For the HNL-ATL redeye, there probably will be a cold-option only breakfast that is served pre-arrival.

I'm flying in Economy. What snack options are available for me?

0-249 miles: There typically aren't any services given on flights because of their short distance, as they are typically Delta Connection flights.

250-899 miles: Treat your taste buds to tried-and-true fare. Light complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will keep you fueled up on your next flight.

900-1,399 miles: Enjoy a selection of high-quality snacks for purchase from the classic EATS menu.

I took this flight not too long ago in EC. You can expect a beverage service about 30 minutes into the flight. After that, dinner (choise of chicken or pasta) will be served. About midway through the flight, the flight attendants will be offering a snack sonsisting of a small sandwhich, bannana, and I think a granola bar. Then, about 1.5 hours prior to landing, they serve a hot pizza with salad. Also, there is a sanck cart set up with water, fresh fruit and yogurt and granola bars and it is self service. Also, the FA's were through the cabin about every 45 minutes with trays of water. Remember, you are in EC so all beer, wine and alcohol is complimentary.

Haven't been on TATL with DL for over a year, but heading out MSP-AMS return in BE in 2 weeks (other connecting flights, but inconsequential). Anyone reviews on the BE meals these days? How about the wine selection?

I flew ATL-JFK-ORD earlier this year. I had breakfast on the 738 ATL-JFK, and (would have) had lunch on the CR9 JFK-ORD. A diverted flight and then mechanical issue delayed the flight until after the late afternoon departure, which I took instead. It had no meal service.

I took this routing due to IROP on original ATL-BNA-ORD routing, but I checked the ATL-JFK-ORD fares for several weeks after seeing the great service. I discovered that this routing is at least 2x as much as the next-most-expensive routing. Coach fares, direct or connecting through BNA/DTW, were all $500-$600, but going through JFK (coach) was at least $1,150 or more for all the dates I checked.

This wasn't even a Y/B/M fare, so as GM I would probably not even get the UG for that price. FC was more expensive than coach too (though it would be cheaper to buy FC on any other routing than coach through JFK). Definitely not a great option unless a stop in JFK is absolutely necessary!

BE meals are really quite good these days. Personally, I love the soup and appetizer. Usually skip the salad, which is quite large and uninteresting, nothing to write home about. Main courses offer a lot of choices, but I generally choose either the fish or pasta option. Steak is usually well-done and tough, and the chicken can be dryed out from freezing and then over-heating on the plane. Can't help you much with the wines, I forego them for a Heineken. Dessert is always very good, no matter which one you choose.

Pre-arrival "snack" last week was choice of a chicken and pesto hot sandwich or a salmon and potato salad cold plate. Either one is very tasty, it depends on my mood which one I choose for myself.

In between the two meal services, there is usually a hot chocolate chip cookie offered and there is always the snack cart for additional munchies if you get hungry. On my MXP-JFK flight last week, there were so many desserts left over that those were the only things on the snack cart. Lots of fruit and cheese choices plus Italian cannoli with strawberries. No packaged cookies, no chips in sight. The hot chocolate chip cookies ended up being added to the tray for the pre-arrival snack instead of being offered mid-flight. It was no big deal, no one went hungry and we actually arrived about 35 minutes early so there was not enough time to eat all of the food that was available!

If you want to preview the main menu for your flight, go to delta.com and you will find it under Travel Information/In-Flight Services/Business Elite. Have a good flight!

Hi!

I will be flying Business Elite from AMS - ATL on DL175 in august. I typically fly KLM on TATL flights, and have always been served dinner after departure. When I logged in to my booking, the meal shows "Breakfast" Would I be served breakfast after departure, and then a dinner/lunch prior to arrival?

You should see a similar timeline as the post above (thanks for that, by the way). There will be time of day adjustments to dictate the meal (breakfast in morning, etc). You won't go hungry!

Eastbound to Europe this month (May), I would choose either the Beef Short Ribs or the Fish (Cod) for the main entree - both are quite good actually.

Because DL175 leaves AMS early (9am), the main meal will be a Brunch - the entree choices will be some typical lunch or breakfast items (e.g., one option would be steak and eggs, another would be pancakes/waffles, while another would be the ubiquitous chicken dish). The appetizers are nice too - a fruit/yogurt plate, as well as a smoked salmon dish.

Before landing, you will get the typical snack (choice of a hot sandwich or a salad) which could qualify as a light lunch.

Food from SIN-NRT-DTW?

Hello Flyers,

I am heading from SIN - NRT on a morning flight then from NRT to DTW in the afternoon, arriving at 4:30pm. Any insight into meals served?

After the flight from NRT to SIN earlier this week, and having an almost inedible dinner (and I am not as picky as some), I am considering taking the vegetarian (dairy allowed), as I can't imagine it being worse.

Thanks!

Assuming you're in Y, I always order Asian Vegetarian (AVML). From Asia, it's usually a noodle dish, including for breakfast. The only downside is that the mid-flight snack on the TPAC can be pretty random. (Once I get a banana with a special meal sticker on it, another time a bag of grapes and a bag of carrots.)

The SIN flight is breakfast, IIRC, so the usual choices of egg something or other and some vaguely Asian inspired dish.

Of course, there are also plenty of good food options at both SIN and NRT

ATL-UIO-ATL

Booking ATL-UIO-ATL in Business. Any idea of what to expect for meal service? I'm assuming more like domestic F than international J, but curious.
