So the airline is bringing back complimentary meals in 12 markets nationwide after receiving positive feedback from passengers during a test period late last year.

“We are all about making our Main Cabin experience the best it can be for our customers and offering free, high quality meals is a big part of that experience,” said Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President of In-Flight Service. “When we tested this concept, our customers loved it and appreciated it so we are implementing in our most strategic markets.’

Here’s what’s on the menu

Morning flights:

  • Honey Maple Breakfast Sandwich
  • Luvo Breakfast Medley
  • Fruit and cheese plate

The free meals return March 1 for flights between New York’s JFK and Los Angeles/San Francisco. Service will expand on April 24 to 10 additional markets:

  1. BOS-SFO
  2. BOS-LAX
  3. BOS-SEA
  4. DCA-LAX
  5. JFK-PDX
  6. JFK-SAN
  7. JFK-SEA
  8. SEA-FLL
  9. SEA-MCO
  10. SEA-RDU

This change comes as Delta expands a restrictive basic economy ticket option, which offers no seat assignment until after check-in, no refunds or changes and no upgrades.

The low-cost fare does include the same food and beverage service that regular economy passengers get.
