Delta will be expanding its inflight service offerings starting April 14th, as the airline attempts to start bringing back a pre-pandemic service.
Delta will offer 7.5-ounce Coca-Cola mini cans of Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite and Seagram’s Ginger Ale. The airline will also serve up premium, ready-to-drink, canned cocktails from Atlanta- based Tip Top Proper Cocktails starting with a an old fashioned and a margarita.
Here’s the details of Delta’s new service starting April 14th:
The new snack and beverage service will include coffee, tea and water plus sweet and savory snacks in all cabins on domestic flights and the debut of new products that we know customers will love, like mini soda cans and premium, canned ready-to-drink Tip Top Proper Cocktails. These new products drive simplicity of the service and promote safety, too.
Redesigned service standards developed in partnership with the Mayo Clinic went through multiple rounds of validation and onboard simulations to ensure they are safe to execute and reduce complexity as much as possible. Some of the changes include:
- New mini soda cans for the Main Cabin that will be delivered to the customer unopened, which streamlines and simplifies the service.
- Contactless payment technology to enable on board sales (Tap-to-Pay launched March 16 with the return of earbud sales).
- Streamlined selection of beverage choices.
- Ice upon request with new handling guidelines.
Other updates announced:
Delta will be brining back onboard recycling as Delta’s part of our renewed commitment to sustainability.
Additionally, pricing for alcoholic beverages has been adjusted to reflect improvements in the quality and brands offered in our portfolio. Prices will increase by $1 across each category, including domestic beer, craft beer, spirits, wine and craft cocktails.
Delta explains that they have not followed other airlines or reacted to the actions of our competitors. Instead, they’re launching the new snack and beverage service the Delta way – driven by our values, focused on safety.
