Delta Dining
Delta Air Lines is trialing a new restaurant-style food service on its international flights for economy customers on flights between Portland, Oregon, and Tokyo. If the trial proves popular, Delta could roll out the concept to all of its international flights by the end of the year.
Each course is served separately following a choice of three Bellinis or a sparkling soft drink.
Each passenger is also handed a printed menu detailing their choices with dishes that could include a quinoa salad as a starter, a main course of pasta with cauliflower in a cream sauce and a dessert of Häagen-Dazs ice cream.
Rather than the usual meal trays, the meal is served on white dishes with white cloth napkins rather than paper. Cutlery is still made from plastic, it is described as being more robust and sleek.
Bring it, Delta!

Weekend Getaways
Air travel site Airfarewatchdog is making it even easier to find last-minute long weekend deals with its new Weekender tool, which only shows the airfare rates to a destination for two- to four-day trips leaving Thursday or Friday, and returning Sunday or Monday.
Users can choose the Anywhere option and the search engine will show you a list of popular, value destinations near you.
The new tool also lets you compare deals for different dates, showing you this weekend, next weekend, and upcoming weekend options.
A hotel deal can be added to the airfare through online travel agents like Expedia and


Airfare offers – ones with or without a ticket-by date can expire at any time.  Heed Clark’s advice: Buy that great airfare deal right now – and then figure out a reason to go there! Eventually, you’ll see the world at a fraction of the normal price!
