Delta Airlines is reportedly considering bringing back free meals on their flights. The practice used to be a standard one, but in recent years many airlines have cut back on the free meals to save money. Delta has other ideas.
Apparently the lowered fuel prices over the past few years have saved the airlines a lot of money, and enough that Delta feels like they might be able to turn that around into generosity.
The airlines has already been testing this out on flights that have been going between New York’s John F. Kennedy International, Los Angeles International Airport, and the San Francisco International Airport.
Delta will analyze the results after the testing period ends on December 15.
Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President of In-Flight Service, released a statement about the idea.
“We are constantly actively listening to our customers and employees, gathering their feedback and testing new products on board to continuously improve the overall experience. Testing meals on Transcon flights is part of our commitment to be thoughtful about our offerings and make decisions based on customers’ needs.”
