With its new premium three-course meal and complimentary prosecco offering, Delta aims to provide better customer experiences for travelers flying internationally in the economy section

Delta Airlines is upgrading its culinary service by providing premium three-course meals to economy-class passengers on longer-haul flights. As airlines increasingly are downgrading amenities for their lower-priced offerings, Delta’s new initiative shows that these consumers might be able to expect better airline experiences across the board in the near future.

Currently, this upgraded dining experience is available on flights from Portland, Oregon to Tokyo, Japan for a trial run. Delta has yet to comment on how long but the airline seems to be rolling out this program throughout the organization by November 1 of this year.

The airline’s new in-flight bistro style menu will include options such as a salad with quinoa and grapes, pasta with cauliflower and Häagen-Dazs ice cream for dessert. Additionally, passengers will be offered some “welcome bubbles” in the form of either a bellini or a choice of non-alcoholic options including LaCroix and San Pellegrino.

The menu itself will even have course selections, being divided into appetizers, entrée and dessert sections. As airliners compete for consumers’ attention, Delta’s new menu aim to differentiate the brand and raise its appeal to economy passengers.
