Delta trials ‘restaurant-style’ three-course meals in Economy Class

Delta Air Lines is trialling a new food service with economy passengers served restaurant-style three-course meals with cocktails.


Delta Air LinesΒ is testing out a new restaurant-style food service for passengers in Economy Class.


To begin the meal, passengers have a choice of “Welcome Bubbles”- a glass of Bellinis or a sparkling soft drink.


Much like in Business Class, economy passengers will then choose meal options from a printed menu of appetisers,Β entrΓ©es andΒ dessert.


Choices may include aΒ quinoa salad as a starter and aΒ main course of pasta with cauliflower in a cream sauce.


Rather than the usual meal trays, the food is served on white dishes and cloth napkins are provided rather than paper.


The carrier is currently testing out the new service on flights between Portland, Oregon, and Tokyo.


If the trial proves popular, Delta could roll out the new food service to all of its international flights before 2019.


A Delta spokesperson said: “Delta constantly listens to customer feedback and is now testing innovative ways to make our culinary experience on board feel more like dining at a favourite restaurant.

“As part of that we are conducting a test on select international flights where flight attendants will deliver an enhanced main cabin dining experience that we’ll use to gather customer feedback.”
