Instead of spending money on seating, airline companies are redirecting their focus towards providing flyers with the best in-flight meals

Delta Air Lines preformed a group focus test to find out what customers desired most from an in-flight meal. Delta discovered the group reacted much better to the same food when it was given to them on aesthetically pleasing silverware and plates.


Delta plans to update their silverware and plates for customers to have a fresher perspective for their in-flight meals. This also includes the meals prepared using fresher ingredients, though, having employees on the flight making the meals themselves remains a stretch. The menu on the flights will have updated items to give customers a wider variety to choose from, however, Delta plans to keep their less healthy options available to have food for everyone on board.

The real fight for flight companies was originally having the most comfortable seating, but they've now switched to having the best food experience for customers.
