As per past records, it is usually the First Class or Business Class passengers that fly like royalty with the comfortable seats and classy meals. Things are about to change for Economy Class passengers as Delta Airlines is testing out plans to enhance the flying experience for its long-haul passengers.
The airline is offering a brand new three-course meal and wine option for its economy passengers that seeks to make the onboard culinary experience feel a bit more like dining at a favourite restaurant.

Passengers would be greeted with “Welcome Bubbles” upon takeoff, where they would be offered a cocktail service which features bellinis and three different brands of sparkling waters alongside a variety of choices from the cocktail cart. Passengers would be presented with a printed menu to select their item of choice and the three courses of their meal would be served separately instead of being handed out on a single tray all at once. Some choices include a quinoa salad, roasted grapes or perhaps pasta with cauliflower and walnuts in cream source, and you can top it off with a cup of Haagen-Dazs ice cream for dessert.
The meals would be served on white plates with cloth napkins. Although plastic cutlery would still be used, the airline would be implementing a sleeker design as compared to the current designs adopted in most economy cabins across airlines.
Delta Airlines is testing this new option on flights between Portland, Oregon and Tokyo, Japan at the present moment. Should the airline receive positive customer feedback, Delta Airlines has plans to offer three-course meals to all passengers on long-haul international flights by the end of 2018.
