Flight Review: Delta One Business Class Breakfast JFK-LAX

We recently wrote about the new Delta One Business Class North End Grill Menu which is served on flights from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles and San Francisco as well as Delta One Transcontinental Business Class Dinner SFO-JFK but haven’t covered their breakfast options on the transcon flights, so I was excited when a business trip meant I would be able to experience an earlier morning flight.

Delta doesn’t offer complimentary upgrades to Delta One on their transcontinental flights, but Platinum Medallions can redeem Regional Upgrades and Diamond Medallions can redeem Global or Regional Upgrades if they wish to upgrade.

This particular flight was operated on a Boeing 757-200ER in a 2×2 configuration meaning the window seats didn’t have direct aisle access, which can be seen as a negative compared to their 767-300ER planes which offer direct aisle access in the premium cabin.

Due to runway construction at LAX, there was a ground delay program in place at Los Angeles International Airport delayed our departure time by 45 minutes. For this flight I chose seat 1C, which is the aisle bulkhead.

Transcon flights come with the same swag that international Delta One flights offer including a Westin Heavenly pillow and blanket, noise canceling headphones and a Tumi amenity kit.

Mimosa Martini Review

While you can order any pre-departure beverage you’d like, flight attendants come by offering orange juice or sparkling wine. I asked if I could have a mimosa which was delivered promptly.

For breakfast, Delta’s Westbound transcon flights feature cuisine in partnership with Café MoMa. For breakfast the two entree choices were a quiche or greek yogurt.

For a starter, breakfast featured smoked salmon with cream cheese, onions and arugula as well as an assortment of fresh fruit and yogurt and a pecan bar.

For the entrée I opted for the quiche which was quite flavorful and had mushrooms and tomatoes along with roasted potatoes. Hot bagels and croissants were offered. Additionally, they were offering a signature citrus-cranberry juice which was tasty.

The other entrée was a Five Acre Farm Greek Yogurt with pineapple and coconut-cherry granola, but having the yogurt as a starter already it seemed repetitive if you were to order to.

Normally you’re offered a choice of three entrees in Delta One, but I believe with the new partnership with Café MoMa they’ve only started with two this month, but later on they’ll add a third choice.

Prior to landing, we were served warm chocolate chip cookies, however you can’t have a warm cookie without a glass of milk!

Bottom Line

If you’re looking to redeem your Delta SkyMiles or other credit card points for a trip in Delta One, consider using the Juicy Miles award booking service, who can help you redeem for the lowest amount of miles.

I was pleased with the breakfast service on this flight and personally was a fan of the quiche (it tasted better than the presentation). It’s nice change from the normal omlette egg option which most of the domestic flights feature.

Have you had a chance to try their new Café MoMa breakfast menu? Feel free to share your thoughts below!
