How is this different than what we see today in business class?

In fact, that large size main was downsized by PMUA, and made larger after 3/3/12.

All I can gather is we don't have a 'specialty cocktail' listed on the menu, and no pre-arrival snack. But we're getting a lie flat seat and real personal entertainment screens. Crews are the same.

I say all of this as a critic as well. In fact, recently wrote to senior management about the need to mystery shop Delta on these routes, as they do a much better job than United or AA. And a better job than United PS business circa 2005.
The size of the main course was still the same - it's the plate that got bigger.

It's not a well known brand, and it's in a 187ml bottle, as opposed to a full size bottle.

I saw it last week during the NBC 11pm news. There is a large billboard near SFO advertising p.s. service as well.
