DELTA ONE (Business class) for premium TRANSCON ROUTES (only JFK-LAX/SFO) – Chef Michael Chiarello

This is a signature service for routes between JFK and LAX/SFO/SEA and other destinations. It includes a three course meal, except on red-eye flights which have a lighter one course offering. Delta does not specify specific meals. These transcon flights also feature Starbucks coffee, premium teas and sparkling wine.

Typical offerings:

Breakfast

- Need info here

Lunch

- Need info here

Dinner

- Need info here

Red-Eye Flights

- Need info here



MEALS IN DOMESTIC FIRST CLASS (WITHIN THE US) OR IN BUSINESS CLASS (TO CANADA, MEXICO, CARRIBEAN, ETC.)

First Class is defined as first class service to all 50 states (some exceptions for Hawaii and Alaska) on all non TRANSCON routes (such as JFK-LAX, see the section above). Business Class is the same service as domestic first but for trans-border North American flights that do not offer Delta One service, typically found on routes between the USA and Caribbean, Canada, Mexico, and Central America. One exception for business class flights is that sparkling wine is offered pre-departure as with all Delta international flights.

Meal service is determined by distance flown and time of departure:

0-250 miles
Limited snack box: Biscoff cookies, peanuts, and pretzels

251-899 miles
Full snack basket is offered

Examples of snacks offered:
Morning flights (departures 05:00-09:45) offer peanuts, pretzels, Biscoff cookies, biscotti, bananas, Otis Spunkmeyer muffins and Quaker Oats chewy granola bars.

Afternoon/evening: peanuts, pretzels, apples, Twix, Toblerone, Sun Chips and Walkers shortbread cookies.

900-1399 miles
Meals are served for flights departing 5am-1:30pm and 4pm to 8pm. This can vary slightly by flight, so it is best to check the reservation notes on delta.com. At other times a snack basket is passed around the cabin (see above).

1400+ miles
Full meal service will be offered between 5am-8pm. Breakfast is served for flights departing up to 9:45AM, and full lunch/dinner service after that. NOTE: For flights departing between 8pm and 9pm a light meal service, referred to as "refreshments" on delta.com, will be offered. This is often a source of confusion because delta.com lists full meal service for 1400+ mile flights as going until 9pm, but the reservation online will list "refreshment" and not "dinner." Also, there have been recent reports of longer redeye flights being served a pre-arrival breakfast, but there is not great information available about this. If your flight lists "refreshments" instead of "none" for meal service, this is a good sign that you will have some food service. If depature is after 9pm and before 5am, it will probably be a pre-arrival breakfast. See sample menu below.



SAMPLE MENUS

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):

Note: If you are flying a DELTA CONNECTION® flight (on regional jets such as a CRJ or Embraer) most meal service is cold as the majority of these planes are not equipped with ovens. There are reports that certain CRJ-900's are equipped with "warmers" but there is no way to know this in advance

All domestic first class meals are served on delta signature dishes with real flatware, glasses, etc.

Breakfast – served for departure times 5:45am-9:45am

Cold breakfast options:
-cereal, yogurt, muffin, fruit
-oatmeal with fruit and a bagel

Hot breakfast options:
-Omelette with potatoes, bagel, and fruit
-Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich
-Breakfast burrito

Lunch 9:46am-3:59pm
NOTE: No meal service on flights departing 1:30pm-3:59pm for flights under 1400 miles.

Typically served with fresh fruit (or another side). This is typically a lighter meal.

-Pizza with feta cheese
-Burger with pickle, tomato, and onion on the side
-Turkey sandwich with chips
-Hot pastrami sandwich

Dinner 4pm-8pm

All meals are typically served with bread, salad, and a dessert item such as a cookie.

-Cold grilled chicken with risotto
-Chicken-orzo salad (cold)
-Spinach ricotta ravioli
-Chicken teriyaki with white rice

1400+ mile flights departing 8pm-9pm

Typically there is only one option offered such as a hot sandwich served with chips and a cookie. Full snack basket will also be offered.

Long-Haul Hawaii Routes (ATL/MSP-HNL and seasonal JFK to HNL)
Note that Western US departures to Hawaii receive standard domestic service.

After departure a standard domestic F meal for 1400 mile + flights will be served. Prior to landing, there will be a lighter meal served. For afternoon/evening arrivals this will be sandwich or salad, for morning arrivals, a continental breakfast.


MEALS ON INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS - Economy & Economy Comfort

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 DeltaOne 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 typically served with:
- A main side dish to go with the entrée
- A small bowl of salad
- Bread/roll with butter
- A dessert item

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 the bottom of the wiki for more information on special meals.


DOMESTIC ECONOMY SNACKS, MEALS, AND EATS MENUS
Note: inventory is limited and not all options are always available.

For passengers seated in Comfort+ all drinks are complimentary, and on medium and longer flights, a basket of complimentary snacks will be passed around, with offerings such as chips, chocolate, crackers and other packaged snacks.

0-249 miles: No service except water/coffee by request when time permits.

250-899 miles: Complimentary peanuts, pretzels and Biscoff cookies.

900-1,399 miles: Complimentary peanuts, pretzels and Biscoff cookies plus limited premium snacks for purchase from the classic EATS menu.

1,400+ mies: Between 5:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., our premium EATS menus feature selections for purchase and are available on domestic (U.S. and Canada), Latin America and Caribbean flights.

Links to Current Economy - EATS Menus:

These menus change regularly, so it is best to check these links prior to flying for the most up to date menu.

DL apparently updates these links each month with each new menu, but in case the info is not correct or the links go dead, you may check the current offerings at this link and go to the bottom of the page and on the left it lists the info for EATS menus.

Classic EATS Menu - US, Caribbean, and Latin America

Coast-to-Coast EATS Menu - JFK to LAX/SFO (and possibly other transcon flights)

Hawaii EATS Menu - only offered on ATL-HNL

Check each EATS menu for items offered and more details. There are different menus as there are different items served based on each destination, as well as different items for eastbound and westbound flights.


SPECIAL MEALS:

Delta offers special meals for a variety of dietary restrictions on all flights with complimentary meal service. For flights within North America & the Caribbean, this means first class only. For transpacific/transatlantic and flights to South America, this would include all cabins.

No special meals are available on flights departing ABQ, ELP, or TUS.

Here are the special meals that are offered. You can select special meals by viewing your reservation online or by calling Delta.

The same meal may be served across multiple categories (i.e. the same physical meal may be served for Bland/Diabetic/Low Fat/Low Sodium/Vegetarian).

Please note that mistakes are widely reported. Confirm your meal request with a gate agent and flight attendant. Passengers with special dietary needs are strongly advised to bring their own snacks in case a catering error occurs.

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
