On SAT I had pre-ordered and when they came around they said "I'm sorry all the chicken was pre-ordered" and I was like "yeah, I know one was me" and the FA replied "no I mean we have none left".

Honestly the entire process has made the meal process WORSE, not better!
You should write this up and send it in as a complaint to Delta so they can track it.

I've shared a few thoughts with Delta on this topic over the last month. They don't seem to (genuinely) care.

It happened to me a few months ago with my wife, for some reason her email wasn't on the PNR.

What if my wife's profile has my e-mail; will I get two e-mails for our upcoming trip?

I had to change the e-mail on her profile because she was complaining about spam from DL

I would return your wife's email to her profile and then setup her email (whatever it may be) to send all delta related emails to the spam folder. She will still be able to access them when needed. Especially when you are travelling together, when you receive your email it would also be a signal for her to check her spam folder for hers as I imagine they would come out at the same time or very close.

I fly F class or international Delta One on a weekly basis and have never received one of these emails.

My partner and I are on the same reservations. He always gets the email, but I don't. Not a big deal, but just curious.

Received the pre-select email for my Austin–Detroit early morning breakfast flight.

ATL - SEA dinner options

Picked the sandwich as I'm not fond of pad thai with cold chicken. Got a subsequent email confirmation of my choice as well!

What's with Delta and shrimp or prawns. I swear. They must get an amazing deal from the catering kitchens.

Unusual not to see a filet of fish option, like cod or salmon.

The spring 04/2018 AMS-US menu also didn't have salmon. Wouldn't worry to much, the spring 2018 menu 'roasted salmon filet' or 'bourbon grilled cedar plank salmon' might make a reappearance in the 5/19 AMS-US menu (it did last year)
Plus pretty sure fish is not completely gone from the menu and we will see 'salmon tataki' as a starter in the AMS-US 2019 spring menu later this week

Add to that; betting that the 'almost there' options 'Cuban pork sandwich' or the 'mixed green salad with grilled chicken' are also the same as the March 2019 spring menu (and 2018 spring menu).

Adding another data point. Thursday SLC-YYZ received the preorder email about 69 hours out. Korean Meatballs or Buffalo Chicken Salad.
