How is catering ex-LGA looking? I'm doing LGA-DEN soon and I'm wondering if it'll have a real breakfast or not.

I had hot breakfast (baked eggs) on a LGA/MSP leg last month.

LAX-SEA, DL1098. Upgraded at gate and didn't expect a full meal for the 2.5hr flight but was not disappointed to find this meatball (real), garlic bread, and burrata mozz ball waiting for me. These new meal partnerships with local LA restaurants seem to be working out nice.
This meal is delicious! But, it's weird that Delta One and Delta domestic get the same meals. Had this exact meal (except with soup) all shoved on one tray and served together on LAX-SYD.

Was pleasantly surprised to get drink service and the snack basket passed around in F on a 34-minute flight from LGA to PVD on Friday.

According to Deltas website, all flights in FC get drink and snack service regardless of length. Why were you surprised? For any instance where service was not present, you should submit a complaint.

Fair enough. Guess I've been jaded by not getting snack service on my last three LGA-BOS trips in F in the past year that I was surprised when I actually got it on a flight that was even shorter.

I flew that route pre-pandemic and received full drinks/snacks - even the flight notes on that route mention service for F. I'd complain for an easy stash of miles.

Airport vendors at PHX will be fined starting 6/1 if they don’t offer full hours and menus. PHX should fine Delta too.

Anyone fly BOS-DFW? Curious what we may get in F both directions...Side note - is there an end date in mind for the sad boxes?

Interested as well since I just booked this earlier today.

Flew it in late March but got a sad box, pretty sure I saw someone more recently on here that also got a sad box…

Is this being catered out of ATL? Im trying to see if this would be what I'd be getting as an option on ATL-BOS next week...
Although to be honest anything is better than the polenta bowl or chicken I've been forced fed by united recently

Delta One dinner menu for ATL-LHR. Received about 6 ish days in advance. Flying on 25 May. 4 different entree selections from our family, so I’ll report back with picture later this week.

Regional Update. Finally enjoyed full drink service in F from SAN to LAX, albeit no PDB. Was infuriating during the pandemic when they claimed the flight was too short for service, thinking that no one in the F cabin had ever flown that segment before 2020. Sad boxes from LAX to SAT were disappointing. So much waste with all of the packaging.
