Delta adds a sparkle

More competition on the inflight catering front emerged last week with Delta Air Lines claiming every flight could now be a special occasion after the airline introduced Italian sparkling wine in the main cabin in the shape of a glass of prosecco.

The carrier noted passengers had long had a choice of free beer, white and red wines and spirits, with the popular fizz, now available on all international flights, continuing Delta’s focus on providing a premium on-board food and drink offer.

Vice-president on-board services Lisa Bauer said: “Sparkling wine is often the first choice for a celebration and we know how special it is for people to jet off on a trip, so we wanted to bring the celebration to them.”

 “Offering free chef-curated food and drinks throughout the flight is one of the things that sets Delta apart and we’re upping the ante again with our mini bottles of prosecco.”

Passengers in the Delta One cabin meanwhile can now sample the flavours of autumn  through a new selection of wines curated by the airline’s master sommelier, Andrea Robinson, to create a seasonal list.
