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.

Great to see proof that DL has adopted NW's meal/flight duration guidelines in FC (meals on flights 2 hrs and above)! And, will be such an improvement in Y to have EATS on all longer flights, as opposed to NW's overpriced, horrible snack boxes.

This list isn't completely accurate because it doesn't include meals served in F on routes like LGA-ATL.

Note that come April, DL's meal standards will change - meals will be served on flights of 900 miles in length, so routes such as MSP-ATL (907 miles) and MSP-SLC (991 miles) will now be served meals.

Note that I've been told the F Snack Basket is also changing in April. The good news is that a healthy option is coming - the fruits from the NW Snack Basket will be part of the DL Snack basket. The bad news is no more Sun Chips...

Oh I think the Biscoffs are safe...

Still, it'll be different not having the Sun Chips on board - seemed like the snack of choice in F cabins.

Note that I've been told the F Snack Basket is also changing in April. The good news is that a healthy option is coming - the fruits from the NW Snack Basket will be part of the DL Snack basket. The bad news is no more Sun Chips...
no! sun chips must stay!!! but thanks for the heads up - i'll update this when the new meal info comes out

Not quite true, they announce that only one beer or wine is complimentary with you meal and hard liquor is not free with your meal.

On my ATL-UIO-ATL runs, they are usually flexible and will comp me a my whiskey instead of the beer/wine option; but on my ATL-AMS-ATL runs, they seem to be strictly by the book. YMMV

Nice list, thanks for the effort in putting it togetheer.

Flights 1,551 miles or more (3.5 hours or more) In First Class, 2 complimentary meals with glassware and silverware will be served in addition to snack basket, and in Coach the snack basket and EATS items are available.



I was upgraded this Sunday from DEN to JFK for a 10:25am flight. I have been accustomed to getting 1 meal service when I have taken this flight before. It's interesting that it is now 2 based on the 1,600 miles or so. Wow! Is it just one small snack and then one meal??

What it means is that you'll have a choice from two complimentary meals - a meat-based dish, and a pasta-based dish. The website doesn't do that good of a job of making it clear. Service would be the choice of lunch (from two items), and then the snack basket before/after that.

Thanks for clarifying, Mersk862!

Does anyone have the fine details on the LGA-ATL special circumstance? I fly this route frequently and its not always consistent...I have received lunch on a 3:40pm flight but not a 12:00 flight...and that was a cold chicken sandwich. Breakfast seems to always be the same...cereal, fruit, yogurt, and a roll....no warm meals.

So anyone know the parameters for the LGA-ATL leg and if there are other special routes under 1000 miles that have meal service in FC?
