Delta has announced it will be introducing complimentary meals on several of its longest domestic flights, including transcontinental routes between New York's JFK and Los Angeles/San Francisco (LAX/SFO).

Beginning March 1, Delta will offer complimentary meals in the main cabin on flights between JFK and LAX/SFO. Additionally, beginning April 24 the airline will expand complimentary meals to 10 other major domestic markets from Seattle, New York, Boston and Washington, D.C. including BOS-SFO, BOS-LAX, BOS-SEA, DCA-LAX, JFK-PDX, JFK-SAN, JFK-SEA, SEA-FLL, SEA-MCO and SEA-RDU.

The expansion is part of Delta's ongoing multi-million dollar investment in the onboard customer experience, which includes upgraded main cabin snacks, blankets, light food-for-purchase options and free in-flight entertainment. Main cabin customers on long-haul international flights also have access to complimentary beer, wine and spirits, as well as sleep kits.

The new meal program will offer a variety of options for customers depending on the time of day. In the morning customers will choose between a Honey Maple Breakfast Sandwich, Luvo Breakfast Medley or fruit and cheese plate, while afternoon options include a Mesquite-Smoked Turkey Combo, Luvo Mediterranean Whole Grain Veggie Wrap, or fruit and cheese plate. Overnight customers will be offered a breakfast bar during the pre-arrival beverage service.

Following the March 1 launch on routes between JFK and LAX/SFO, the menus on all 12 routes will be updated according to seasonal and regional ingredients. In addition to the new meal service, customers seated in Delta Comfort+ will have access to a pre-arrival snack basket, which will be included on all 12 routes, as well as complimentary beer, wine and spirits. A mid-service Greek frozen yogurt bar will also be offered in Delta Comfort+ on flights from JFK to and from LAX and SFO.
