The rumor posted upthread is that hot meals will start returning on March 1st -- https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/33937914-post85.html, but there has been no official word from Delta.

Hot food might be back by April/May. The TPG "leak" of the hot meal info says March 1st for a return, although Delta in internally had lightly denied that being a firm date.

That would be nice. For JFK-CDG in May, the price on Delta.com is $4,293 RT for D1 (PS is around $2,000). I think flyers deserve more than a Sad Box at those prices.

The hot meal return stated above is for domestic First, Delta One including this transatlantic hop has had hot meals for quite awhile…

List of alcohol available on flights? (Comfort Plus)

Can someone remind me where to find the specific alcohol that Delta carries onboard? I was wondering if Delta offers sparking wine? I found a thread on another site about sparkling rose and porter beer! I am in Comfort Plus by the way, which I guess means choices are the same as main cabin?

Thanks. It’s been a while since I’ve flown. Do planes still have those big propeller things?

Yes. It was standard for domestic first as far back as I remember.
