Negative airline experiences have been in the news recently. Fortunately, Delta Airlines is promoting a positive attitude by opening  #DeltaAltitudeLounge pop-ups to the public, informing potential passengers about the onboard services and premium comfort offered in each of the six cabin options. 

Attending a #DeltaAltitudeLounge pop-up in Culver City, I learned that Delta now offers new nonstop routes that include LAX to JFK, BOS to SFO and LAX to DCA. From Los Angeles there are over 70 nonstop destinations around the globe. Internationally they serve 13 nonstop destinations including Tokyo, Shanghai and Sydney.

Flying on Delta is more luxurious than many of the competing airlines. Here's a peek at the new amenities and onboard services to make passengers flight experience better than its been in a long time. 

 Delta

Fly in Comfort

Soft slate gray slippers are available in all cabins on flights to China, Australia, Japan and Korea. Delta One and Delta Premium Select customers receive a Tumi amenity kit with Kiehl’s lip balm and deluxe hand and body aloe vera lotion that is grapefruit-scented. On flights to China and Australia, Delta One passengers can relax, dine and work in a roomy flat bed seat that can be adjusted 180 degrees for sleeping on the Westin Heavenly in-flight bed with luxurious white comforters and hypoallergenic pillows. Change out of your clothes into comfortable and stylish loungewear and slippers. To block sound, passengers receive LSTN Sound Co. noise cancelling headphones that also enhances the onboard Delta Studio entertainment system.

Culinary Delights

The new improved food and beverage program includes heated nuts for Delta One flight experiences. On select routes, Comfort and Main Cabin passengers receive complimentary meals that includes Luvo and Murray’s cheese. The Murray’s cheese plate offers Spanish Manchego, Boerenkaas aged Gouda and Grafton’s Vermont Cheddar with Rustic Bakery olive oil flatbread, dried apricots, almonds, fresh apple wedges, grapes and a dark mint chocolate. Also on the menu is a turkey brioche sandwich with carrot and celery sticks and red pepper hummus. It’s served with a Godiva caramel-filled milk chocolate. Vegetarians will enjoy a Luvo Harissa Veggie Wrap on a whole grain tortilla and served with grapes, strawberry, and an oatmeal crunch cookie. Complimentary premium snacks include Biscoff cookies, Squirrel Brank almonds, Pretzel Perfection Olive Oil Sea Salt Pretzels and Kind Healthy Grains Oats & Honey Bars. For a refreshing sweet treat passengers will enjoy Ben & Jerry’s, Magnum & Haagen-Dazs, Jeni’s Ice Cream and Honeysuckle gelato on certain flights.

Wine and Spirits

On North American flights, passengers receive a glass (or more) of Avissi Prosecco wine and pours of premium wines selected by Delta’s Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. These wines pair nicely with Delta’s newest in-flight culinary partners. Guests may also sip Macallan Double Cast 12-year Single Malt Scotch Whisky on certain flights.
