On this particular flight last week, I took off back to Atlanta in my Delta First class seat and had clear skies for as far as the eye could see.

I was offered the dumpling dinner; which is one of the newer dinners. I haven’t had this one before so I had to try it. I wasn’t really sure what to expect; it’s just not something I would have expected on a Delta flight. It’s certainly tasty and I would order again. The entree came with dumplings, shrimp and bok choy. The sides are great including a nice little salad and the usual piece of chocolate cake, which is just enough to get your sweet fix.

  1. The meal looks fantastic. Though my stomach may need 10+ dumplings to be fully satisfied.

  2. I’ll take a pass. I’ve never tried requesting a special meal on domestic first-class flights. Can you do this? I wonder what other options would be. Was there a second choice?

  3. Hi FNT, There was another choice, but I was sold on the dumplings so I don’t recall what it was right now. I think that your question bout special meals is really interesting and I will work up a post about that in the coming days. Thanks!

  4. OK…I’m the odd one out. that isn’t what I was expected. The “dumplings” that I was thinking of were more like chicken and dumplings. To me, those are more pot stickers. Just a product of where I live in the country.
