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. It includes a three course meal, except on red-eye flights which have a lighter one course offering. Delta does not specify specific meals.

JFK-SFO, May 2016


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.

EXCEPTIONS:
  • Sub-900 mile flights where other airlines offer meal service on the same route will be catered as if they were in the 900-1399 mile category. Examples are ATL-NYC and certain West coast ex-Seattle flights.
  • West Coast flights between LAX-SFO are served LUVO light snack trays (with items such as carrots, hummus and crackers, etc). These flights also offer free beer (including a local selection) and wine in the coach cabin.

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 "snack" 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 "snack" 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 "snack" instead of "none" for meal service, this is a good sign that you will have some food service. If departure 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
-Chilled grilled shrimp skewers with chili glaze and a side of noodles.
-Pepperoni and sausage calzone

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 - Main Cabin and 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.

MSP-NRT and NRT-SIN, August 2015


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.

Got a great I class fare JFK-PDX-JFK. Outbound is a dinner flight and return is on the red-eye. Based on what I read, there seem to be a number of different dinner meals on 1500+ mile flights. Also, I understand no meal on the red-eye, just a snack.

If you would be so kind, what will my options most likely be for both flights? Not so worried about the red-eye as I will have had dinner beforehand.

Also, how are meal orders taken in the F cabin? I have no elite status, but I am also not an upgrader if that matters.

Theoretically, FEBO. Your milage may vary, though.

Just did the MSP-SFO leg in F with the wife.

We were served an evening meal

she the chicken an I the Pasta

The chicken was described as a Pot Pie, It came more like a thick soup with no pie crust. Rather tasty though

Its major problem was that it was propably prepared by a chinese chef as the chicken skin was left on and undercooked, I wouldnt turn it down but just de-skin it before eating

I took the cannoli which was quite good

I highly doubt that the ethnicity of the "chef" in the airline flight kitchens determines how the meat or any part of a dish is prepared as there are pretty fixed guidelines. Your ignorance is impressive.

another fuss about the veg meals

SLC-ATL DL 1222, 7/20. I had absolutely no time to get something beforehand so chose to eat the pre-ordered veg meal. The dairy veg meal comprised white rice, about 5 steamed zucchini slices along with probably half a steamed red onion and red bell pepper slices , green salad with fat-free dressing and the requisite pineapple and cantaloupe (underripe) slices. There couldn't have been more than a couple of hundred calories total--and that from the rice! No protein whatsoever. After being in a very meat-centric culture for a week and living on green salads and baked potatoes, I was really craving something substantial. Surprisingly, the F cabin was offered a vegetarian lasagna which ran out before reaching the back. Tried to snag that, but FA dragon gave me the evil eye. I've offered many times to school DL catering about how to properly construct a vegetarian meal, but they just refuse to take me up on my offer ! FA's were stingy with the wine too!

Since when is leaving skin on the chicken uniquely Chinese? Are you for real? Where have you been eating?

You could also choose between a bagel and croissant to go along with the other items. I chose the croissant. Light and fluffy...perfect with the included strawberry jam.

EDIT: Although it looks like they forgot the salt and pepper shakers with my meal. This was on a MD-90.

Hi,

Excuse my ignorance, I'm a BA regular and haven't flown a non-charter flight that wasn't with BA in a very very long time.

I am travelling the following legs (with a week in the middle) and I can't find anything particularly definitive on meals and whether they are complimentary or paid!

NCL > AMS (KLM)
AMS > JFK (Delta code share)
JFK > MSY

I'm not fussed on what's on offer between NY & New Orleans but the long flight from Amsterdam to JFK is the thing we're most interested in.

If I have overlooked something whilst searching, please feel free to link me!

Thanks in advance

Katie

NCL > AMS (KLM)
AMS > JFK (Delta code share)
JFK > MSY

I'm not fussed on what's on offer between NY & New Orleans but the long flight from Amsterdam to JFK is the thing we're most interested in.

If I have overlooked something whilst searching, please feel free to link me!

Thanks in advance

Katie

Hi,

Economy, and the flight we're most interested in is KL6071 which I believe is a codeshare Delta, Airbus 330-200

If it is a DL flight I haven't seen any TR lately.
