Plant-based menu options to debut onboard Delta

Delta Air Lines has made this announcement:

The best journey is the one that leaves you feeling better upon arrival than departure. Delta is supporting a healthier you with plant-based food options in airports and on board, unique loyalty partnerships that reward you at home, and in-flight entertainment to relax and unwind during your journey.

“We’ve taken a careful approach to ensuring each customer feels taken care of during their journey on Delta because connecting the world also means caring for those in it – and helping them feel their best no matter where they are,” said Dr. Henry Ting – Chief Health Officer.

Delta partners with leading consumer brands to bring its well-being mission to life across the customer journey. From plant-based food options by Impossible Foods and Black Sheep Foods, to a first-of-its-kind loyalty offer with Instacart, and curated in-flight entertainment with Peloton and Spotify, Delta is introducing more mindful, personalized and health-conscious moments at every step to ensure customers travel well.

EVEN MORE FOOD OPTIONS THAT ARE BETTER FOR YOU AND YOUR WORLD

Alongside the reintroduction of hot meals on board this spring, Delta is serving new plant-based dishes on board featuring products from Impossible Foods and Black Sheep Foods. Beginning this month, customers in premium cabins on select flights can order a variety of Impossible™ dishes like a green chili spice rubbed Impossible™ Burger with caramelized onion jam and Manchego cheese.

An Impossible Burger is among Delta's newest menu offerings for Delta One and First Class customers.

Other plant-based dishes include Black Sheep Foods’s lamb-style meatballs with spinach rice and feta, and cauliflower cakes with creamy pesto orzo. Plant-based meats like Impossible™ Burger are as delicious as meat from animals and better for the environment, using far less land and water, and emitting significantly less greenhouse gases as conventional meat from animals.

ORGANIC, SUSTAINABLE AND LOCALLY SOURCED FOODS ACROSS YOUR JOURNEY

Delta now offers Kate’s Real Food bars in all cabins, the USDA Certified Organic and nutrient-packed snack that promotes health and wellness by focusing on real ingredients.

In select Delta Sky Clubs, the airline partners with local artisans to highlight handcrafted, regionally made food and beverage products through its Fresh Farm program. These ongoing weekly activations began in late 2021 and will soon be found in Delta’s west coast hubs (Seattle, Salt Lake City and Los Angeles). In both Sky Clubs and onboard, customers can enjoy menu items in fresh and hot meals prepared with locally sourced ingredients.
