Dining on Delta is about to become a more indulgent experience with the introduction of a new in-flight dining program. The new Flight Fuel menus will replace the EATS program in the main cabin from June 1, 2016.

In Delta's own words:

The newly branded Flight Fuel program extends far beyond a name change, it’s really about introducing multiple new menu offerings and providing transparency into ingredient and allergen information for customers,” said Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President of In-Flight Service. “This latest enhancement is another step in the right direction for Delta as we continue to improve the overall customer experience and provide a variety of fresh, healthy options in flight.”

Some of the menu highlights look to be the three refreshed snack boxes, which include the airline industry's first non-GMO snack box ‘Tapas,' the breakfast and turkey sandwiches, and the Luvo Wraps, which were revamped back in February.

Flight Fuel Premium will also include Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle and a co-branded cheese selection from Murray's Cheese in New York.

After traveling the world in search of the best cheeses, we are thrilled to bring some of our favorites to Delta passengers,” said Murray’s Owner and President Rob Kaufelt. “We carefully curated these special collections to mirror Delta’s spirit of innovation, and we’re excited to share our passion for cheese with Delta customers.

Final Thoughts

These new offerings are a solid effort from Delta, with a fantastic variety of fresh, healthy food across all three menus. Delta already had a good buy in-flight menu in place, so it's nice to see them taking proactive steps to improve the experience for flyers even further.

Add reasonable pricing and new packaging using sustainable, earth-friendly, recyclable materials and you have a product I will look forward to sampling.
