MIAMI — As of Wednesday, December 14, Delta Air Lines branded peanuts and pretzels will be replaced by brand name products.
The Atlanta-based carrier will now offer improved snacks, including Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels, Squirrel Brand Honey Roasted peanuts, and NatureBox Apple Cinnamon Yogurt Bars, in addition to their existing Biscoff cookies.
According to Delta, the snacks offered in the Main Cabin will be refreshed more frequently in the future, “based on direct customer feedback.” The airline assures that the upgrade in the snacks is the result of “positive customer and employee feedback as the tested branded snacks and larger portions earlier this year.”
US legacy carriers have invested in the passenger experience over the past couple of years, even in economy class. For example, American Airlines and United have introduced free snacks in economy during the last year. Now, Delta is upping the game once again.
The complimentary snacks will be available in the Main Cabin on flights over 250 miles. Additionally, customers on international Delta Air Lines flights will receive a choice of pretzels or honey roasted peanuts.
To celebrate the new snacks, Delta has set up branded vending machines in Los Angeles, Seattle and New York to offer complimentary samples to customers.
