Delta has announced enhancements to the cabin experience for passengers flying in Delta Premium Select, the airline’s premium economy class. Changes include locally-inspired dining and premium hand-crafted amenities. Travellers will also be able to take advantage of more dedicated service touchpoints.
From September 20 2022, Delta Premium Select’s dining experience will introduce a greater choice of options reflecting local flavours. Menus feature dishes such as braised beef short rib with fingerling potatoes and dijon green peppercorn jus. Honey harissa chicken thighs with jollof rice and stewed greens is also an option.
For flexitarians and diners looking to try a meatless dish, there is the likes of Impossible Meatballs with polenta, pomodorini sauce and broccolini. Desserts such as mango mousse with mango passion fruit compote are also on offer.
“Delta Premium Select sits at the intersection of luxury and practicality – giving customers the opportunity to treat themselves to a more spacious seat and premium experience at a lower price point compared to our Delta One cabin,” comments Mauricio Parise, the airline’s vice president of brand experience.
From October 1, Delta will also begin offering Someone Somewhere amenity kits in three different designs. The handmade bags are made using natural and recycled materials.
The Someone Somewhere partnership is driving social impact. QR codes inside of the bags give travellers the opportunity to learn about the person who stitched the amenity kit bag in Mexico. The maker’s name and location are listed on the label.
The bags hold Grown Alchemist clean beauty travel essentials, such as vanilla watermelon lip balm to help keep travellers hydrated, and other premium essentials.
A special ‘bubbles and bites’ moment with sparkling wine, water and a special treat shortly after takeoff, plus a premium snack basket, count among the dedicated service touchpoints Delta Premium Select customers can now expect during their flights.
Delta Premium Select is available on all Delta flights from US airports to its London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol international hubs plus most flights to Europe.
Delta’s premium economy offering gives passengers more space to stretch out and relax than its regular economy class. The seats are wider, offer passengers additional recline during flights and feature an adjustable footrest and leg rest on most long-haul international flights.
“We continue to debut premium products designed for the future of travel, with differentiated offerings that give our customers the experiences they crave,” adds Parise.
