Welcome cocktails, meal upgrades coming to Delta's economy class

Delta is upgrading its Main Cabin experience for travellers on international flights, including welcoming cocktails, new meal options and more.

The upgraded experience, to be offered on international flights scheduled for 6.5 hours or longer (plus select shorter international flights where Delta One or Delta Premium Select is offered), will debut in November, when travellers can expect:

  • Free “Welcome Aboard” cocktails featuring Bellinis to start;
  • Hot towels at the start of the flight and following meal service;
  • Mix-and-match options for premium appetizers and larger entrees;
  • A ‘fond farewell’ chocolate upon descent.

In addition to these enhancements, over the past several months, Delta has provided specialized training to its team of more than 3,000 Pursers — the lead flight attendants on international flights. Responsible for the customer experience from nose to tail, the Purser role at Delta has been elevated to include pre-flight introductions in the gate house and personal greetings at the boarding door.

In addition to recently upgraded amenity kits, more international onboard enhancements are coming soon, like refreshed ear buds and headsets, Delta said.
