Following Southwest Airlines: No Inflight Service on All Flights and American Airlines Reduces Inflight Service on All Flights, Delta is next to announce their latest inflight changes which went into place today March 25, 2020.

Delta will be slashing all alcohol and soda onboard their flights, leaving only bottled water for all passengers onboard all flights in all cabins. They’ll still offered pre-packaged snacks onboard, and first class meals will be replaced with non-perishable Flight Fuel boxes.

Per Delta,

While the signature hospitality that Delta crews are known for worldwide remains unchanged, beginning March 25 customers will start to see the following temporary changes on board on all U.S. domestic and short-haul international flights. Onboard service has been streamlined to include only the following:

  • Two snack offerings across Main Cabin and Delta Comfort+, as well as in First Class on flights less than 900 miles.
  • First Class and Delta One meal service on U.S. domestic and short-haul international flights greater than 900 miles will now be replaced by individually pre-packaged, non-perishable Flight Fuel boxes with two snack offerings.
  • Beverages will be individual bottled water only – no alcohol offerings – across all cabins, with plastic cups and ice also removed during this time.
  • Preselect and Special Meal service will be temporarily suspended.

Delta previously announced the following temporary onboard changes across all U.S. domestic and international flights:

  • All glassware, including coffee mugs and champagne flutes, from First Class and Delta One have been removed.
  • Hot towel service has been temporarily suspended in all cabins.

  1. These are 100% cost saving. These are not because they care. Trust me. They could easily provide a nice pre packaged MEAL if they really wanted to.
