Does anyone know if Delta has a kids meal on domestic first class flights? We are being offered the impossible burrito (vegetarian), Fox Bros. short rib, or the Italian burrata. I don't think a four year old would eat any of these choices. I can just pack something for her if they don't.

SDQ-JFK

Omelette was also very decent. Croissant was stale 👎🏼

Flew a breakfast flight yesterday (so I finally had something other than the salads/impossible burger, yay); the coconut chia pudding was actually decent. That being said, nothing compared to the Peruvian Chicken Sandwich I had on an Alaska Airlines flight last week, which was perhaps the best thing I've eaten on a plane since 2018.

No, Delta no longer serves any children's meals. Our daughter ate some of the burrata and we brought additional snacks to supplement. Note that they also don't have milk on board if you would want it.

It's so crazy to me that TAP has milk, child appropriate food, a changing pad, a toy, and a baby spoon, despite being regarded as a gutter class carrier, and Delta, supposedly the best the US has on offer, doesn't.

IIRC Delta had milk and kids meals pre-COVID.

It doesn't make sense they aren't back. Everyone had been chasing VFR and leisure travel which will skew more toward families. I'd also think throwing some chicken nuggets, fries and a veg out there would be a hell of a lot cheaper then someone basically wasting a non-kid friendly meal.

Question does United or American offer anything that anyone knows of?

United has a kids snack box for purchase, AA has baby meals.

Should I expect a junk box on ATL-BOI?

Pretty bad for an 1800 mile flight.

Upcoming options in domestic first for ATL-DEN dinner then DEN-DTW lunch, respectively. First time flying through ATL with a meal, so I'm looking forward to trying the short rib.

I had a difficult time with the SLC to DTW- None of the options looked really appealing- Hopefully we can get in the lounge at SLC or they have a decent snack basket

Limes too. I know its a first-world problem but Ive seen zero explanation as to why limes and fresh milk are no longer being offered.

During my SFO-JFK Delta One flight earlier this month, had some beef dish for lunch. It was above average. The dessert was actually quite good.



Flew EDI-JFK economy with P2 earlier this week and the food was actually very good and honestly better than the Delta One meal lol.
We were offered a Thai curry with rice, and 3 cheese tortelli as options. Tried both and were impressed with both. The side salad was also great. Dessert was a Beckleberry's Salted Caramel Ice Cream which delicious.
We then got a 2nd meal an hour before landing - spinach & feta pastry and the other was a meat option. Went with the spinach, which was above average. Dessert was a passion fruit mousse which was not bad either.
I am really impressed by Delta's sustainable packaging and utensils in economy, as they are not annoyingly impractical like paper straws, and also feel very high quality and uniquely designed.

I have an AS flight next week, and their options were >>>>>>>>>>Delta's, even for only a 2.5 hour flight.
Same for me. Do they ever have different options once onboard?

Heading to Munich from LAX via DTW on 8/27 and I'm pleasantly surprised that the breakfast choices out of LAX seem to be different than I've been seeing posted lately. I saw peagreenid's post for DTW-CDG leg and I'll be happy with those choices too but won't see the menu still for a few hours.
