MIAMI — Delta Air Lines is bringing back free meals and beverages, for all passengers, on selected long-haul flights to and from Honolulu.
The new complimentary service is going to be launched on Delta’s flights from Atlanta, beginning on September 15, and it will apply to services from Minneapolis / St. Paul, starting on November 3, and New York’s JFK International Airport, beginning on December 17.
Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin customers will be offered two meal services, one at the beginning of the flight and one prior to arrival, thus matching with the airline’s similar long-haul flights.
“As a global airline, Delta continuously evaluates its offerings to ensure we are thoughtful about what we’re providing customers on board,” said Allison Ausband, Senior Vice President-In-Flight Service.
”Offering complimentary meals and alcohol on our long-haul flights to Honolulu is another example of our customer-focused approach.” Ausband said.
The meal services vary on the route, with a choice of two hot entrees, a sandwich with a brownie and a continental breakfast snack box, as well as complimentary beer, wine and spirits.
To date, Hawaiian Airlines is the sole carrier to offer complimentary meals and drinks for all passengers on the Hawaii-Continental U.S. routes.
