Back in August, I had one of the best domestic flight experiences in all my years of flying on Delta, however, not only was the flight experience top notch due to the above and beyond service given by the airlines, I also took notice to new or different meal try concept presented by Delta Air Lines, and I must say I really liked it!
Flying often, it is rare that the meal try stands out to me. I feel like most domestic business/first food comes out on standard cafeteria-style trays that are covered “fancied up” by a cloth napkin in an effort to make the tray look classier. Although I do not have any pictures of meal trays from recent travel on Delta, below I have pictures of meal trays from Korean Air, Alaska, and American all taken in the last 6 months. Notice that each one contains the same standard tray, a cloth napkin covers the tray, and white china.
Now observe what I experienced last week on Delta’s transcontinental flight from Atlanta to San Diego
Although the food was still served on the typical airline white china, notice the more modern wooden trays below. Gone are the napkins covering up cheap high school styled plastic meal trays, and in with the modern chic décor! The trays were ridgeless on the longer sides and had a slight curved lip on the two shorter sides. This could cause for some issues as plates may slide off the sides, but the risk is worth the added flair these new trays bring!
As far as the meal goes, breakfast was good. The omelette was cheese and vegetables with a side of Southwestern potatoes and fresh fruit. Then shortly after breakfast was served warm bagels or croissants were offered. The breakfast was perfect size for a 3.5-hour flight and overall pretty good for a domestic flight, however, more importantly, I love the stylish new trays! I hope Delta rolls these out on all domestic flights! Way to be hip & modern Delta!
