Delta Air Lines announced several new food and beverage offerings for passengers flying this fall. This includes new snacks, new beverages, additions to Delta One® service, and seasonal menus.

New Delta Snacks

New Snacks

Mini SunChips Garden Salsa Flavored Whole Grain Snacks will be added to all cabins as part of Delta’s complimentary snack choices. Beginning September 26th, customers in Delta Comfort+ and First Class will find new options in Delta’s AM Snack Basket. It will feature favorites like Biscoff cookies and new choices like Nature Valley Soft Baked Oatmeal Squares. This snack basket will be available between 5:00 AM and 9:45 AM on flights over 900 miles for Comfort+ passengers and flights between 251 and 1,499 miles for First Class passengers.

Delta Beer

New Beverages

Starting on October 10th, New Belgium Brewing’s Voodoo Ranger IPA will be available on domestic flights. Starting this fall, customers can enjoy Lunzaul Blanco Tequila, which Delta is bringing back by popular demand. Delta will also be offering Lakeland Dairies dairy-free, plant-based oat milk creamer starting on September 26th.

Delta One Meals

Enhanced Delta One® Service

Starting September 12th, Delta One® passengers will enjoy a new, plated appetizer course with choices like dill-cured salmon with pickled vegetables or Mexican shrimp cocktail. Service will be made consistent across Delta One® transcontinental and Hawaii flights to mirror international flights with warm nuts, an expanded wine selection, a special appetizer, the option of dessert or a fruit and cheese plate, and espresso service (on select aircraft). Enjoy a multi-course dining experience in Delta One on domestic transcontinental flights. Other new dishes include Cacio e Pepe Lasagna, Braised Meatballs with Bianco Di Napoli Marinara, Gioia Ricotta and Garlic Bread from Los Angeles-based culinary partners Jon Shook & Vinny Dotolo.

Delta One Chinese Meal

New Choices on Delta One® International Flights

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q’s Beef Short Ribs will be available as a dinner option for Delta One® customers on international flights departing from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) this fall. Served with creamy herb mashed potatoes, green beans, caramelized shallots, and BBQ jus. Customers flying to and from China can opt for a Chinese meal, created by renowned chef Jereme Leung. The meal for customers exiting the US features braised beef brisket, served with stir-fried beans with Chaozhou preserved olives, potatoes and carrots, a poached chicken with preserved Szechuan pickles starter, and a pork broth with Chinese yam, red dates, and crispy rice. A new Korean meal is available for Delta One® passengers on flights between South Korea and the US. Customers exiting the US can choose bibimbap with beef bulgogi, savory dried pollock soup, and refreshing octopus salad with sesame and lemon.

Delta Burger

New First Class Meal Choices

Delta is partnering with acclaimed chef Mashama Bailey of The Grey in Savannah, GA to provide southern flavors to First Class passengers on eligible domestic flights departing from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). Southern classics like Curried Chicken Salad and a Southern Chess Pie Bar for dessert will be featured.

Beginning September 12th, customers will be able to choose seasonal meals if ordered through pre-select over 24 hours before departure. These include Pumpkin Spiced Chia Pudding with apples, figs, and toasted pumpkin seeds for breakfast, a Charcuterie and Cheese Plate for lunch or a light dinner. It includes roasted chicken, quinoa, green beans, roasted tomato, and grilled lemon.

Other new additions include:

  • Vegetarian Mushroom Ravioli with a red pepper butter sauce, wilted garlic spinach, artichoke, marinated tomato, and parmesan. It’s served with a Chocolate Fondant Cake (completed with a gooey fruit compote).
  • Delta’s Classic Cheeseburger is also being refreshed with new toppings including smoked cheddar and dill pickles on a brioche bun.
  • Another new option is a Field Greens Salad with burrata, dried cranberries, chickpeas, toasted sunflower seeds, and sesame dressing. A Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookie from Seattle-based small business Bell’s Cookie Co. will be served for dessert.

Anthony’s Take: I can’t wait to try these new meals. The burger and special dishes out of Atlanta sound great.

About time the D1 flights got multi course back great move

Greg September 13, 2023 - 1:29 pm

Reading the details let me take that back. Sounds like the app will be served at the same time as the main.

So basically D1 is offering the same service AA does on a little midcon.

Meanwhile AA offers proper nuts, then salad/app, then main, then dessert choices on transcons and intl

Should have known it’s vapor ware from Delta again

I don’t see where it states that everything will be served on one tray. Delta offers sequenced meals on international D1 today. So, why is adding an appetizer changing that? People are so hostile these days believing that any change is immediately interpreted as a “downgrade”.
