Delta Airlines has announced it is bringing back free food service to economy class customers on some of its longer domestic flights. The complimentary meals will begin March 1 on flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and California’s Los Angeles International and San Francisco International airports. The service will expand on April 24 to 10 other major domestic markets, including Washington, D.C., Boston and Seattle.
On Delta’s website, spokeswoman Catherine Sirna said, “The enhancement is part of Delta’s ongoing multimillion dollar investment in the onboard customer experience.” This also includes upgraded snacks, access to blankets, more food-for-purchase options and free in-flight entertainment. Main cabin customers on long-haul international flights are also treated to complimentary beer, wine, spirits and sleep kits, she said.
