Delta’s youngest passengers who are embarking on adventures around the world will soon be able to enjoy specially prepared in-flight meals. Beginning on April 1, passengers will be able to pre-order kid-friendly meals for their little passengers.
Beginning on April 1, passengers will be able to pre-order kid-friendly meals for their little passengers.
The meals include an assortment of fruits, veggies, colours, and textures. The chefs at Delta analysed restaurant menus and traditional children’s meals to create dishes that will suit both children and their parents.
The breakfast menu offers French toast with maple syrup, scrambled eggs, a variety of fruit, and a mini blueberry muffin. The lunch and dinner menu consists of cheese tortellini with marinara sauce and parmesan cheese, carrots and broccoli with ranch dressing, other fruits, and graham cookies.
Passengers will be able to select these dishes via special meals on flights departing after April 1 beginning on March 23. First-class passengers can reserve special meals at least 24 hours in advance on long-haul international flights and on the majority of domestic routes.
The reintroduction of kid’s meals is the most recent change to Delta’s updated in-flight food and beverage menu. Delta announced the return of its popular distinctive Delta One dessert cart on January 19.
The dessert trolley features plated desserts, fruit and cheese platters, and an ice cream sundae bar. Visitors can indulge in goodies such as chocolate opera cake, Cowgirl Creamery waggon wheel, Midnight Moon gouda, and grapes. Also available will be a vanilla ice cream sundae with toppings such as whipped cream, cookie crumble, fruit compote, and chocolate chips. Delta One offers a dessert cart on international flights, with offerings varying per departure location.
“Your onboard meal and beverage should be no different than your go-to restaurant at home, and that’s why we’re constantly reinventing our onboard service at Delta. We always want to surprise and delight our customers with seasonal, fresh and fun menu options,” said S.V.P. of In-Flight Service, Kristen Manion Taylor, stated.
In addition to children’s meals and the return of Delta’s much-loved dessert cart, the most recent menu update adds regional touches such as traditional afternoon tea and tapas to pre-arrival menu options, while seasonal additions include comforting dishes from Atlanta’s Little Italia’s Gio’s Chicken Amalfi.
Delta’s extensive food and beverage programme includes Du Nord Social Spirits, a variety of vegetarian menu options in partnership with Impossible Foods, partnerships with three James Beard Award-winning chefs, and elevated onboard wine offerings with Imagery Estate Winery, led by award-winning female winemaker Jamie Benziger.
