Delta has refreshed its Premium Select cabin experience, adding locally-inspired dining, premium hand-crafted amenities, dedicated service touchpoints, and a spacious new seat design.
“Delta Premium Select sits at the intersection of luxury and practicality — giving customers the opportunity to treat themselves to a more spacious seat and premium experience at a lower price point compared to our Delta One cabin,” said Mauricio Parise, vice president of brand experience at Delta. “We continue to debut premium products designed for the future of travel, with differentiated offerings that give our customers the experiences they crave.”
Elevated Dining Experience
Passengers will now have more food options that are also infused with local flavors.
“At Delta, we know a good meal can make a great experience on Delta flights even better,” explained Mike Henny, managing director of on-board service. “When designing our Delta Premium Select menu, we reimagined our food and beverage offerings from scratch, and we’re excited to launch delicious new offerings that also highlight our premium service and culture of innovation.”
Meals include seasonal menus, more plant-based meals, local sourcing and new partnerships with small businesses, and diverse partners and suppliers from around the world.
Options include meals such as braised beef short rib with fingerling potatoes and dijon green peppercorn jus; Impossible meatballs with polenta, pomodorini sauce, and broccolini; honey harissa chicken thighs with jollof rice and stewed greens; and for dessert, mango mousse with mango passion fruit compote.
Main courses will be served on bagasse plates made from sugarcane plant fiber with linen tableware and napkins, and silver flatware and glassware.
There will also be more dedicated service touchpoints throughout the flight with a special “bubbles and bites” moment with sparkling wine, water, a special treat after takeoff, and a premium snack basket.
Handmade Amenity Kits
Beginning in October, Delta is introducing new handmade amenity kits by Someone Somewhere featuring Grown Alchemist travel essentials to make the flight more enjoyable.
Grown Alchemist is a leading force in clean beauty. The kits will have specially curated, natural skincare products along with a vanilla watermelon lip balm and a vanilla and orange peel oshibori hand towel, which will be handed out before the first meal.
They will come in three new designs, handmade by artisans in Mexico exclusively for Delta. Each kit tells the story of the artisan who crafted them.
To honor breast cancer awareness, select Delta flights leaving the U.S. will have pink kits as part of Delta’s long-standing effort to support breast cancer awareness, research, and education.
Other premium amenities include a memory-foam pillow, noise-canceling headphones, and a blanket made from recycled materials.
More Space On-Board
Passengers will also enjoy more space to stretch out on board with a wider seat, additional reclining, and an adjustable foot/leg rest on most long-haul international flights.
More Winter Flights
Delta Premium Select is available on most flights to Europe, including all U.S. routes to Delta’s international hubs in Amsterdam and London.
This winter, Delta will operate nearly 400 weekly flights to popular destinations such as Frankfurt, Paris, Rome, Zurich, and more.
“Customers traveling between November and March can expect fewer crowds, unique seasonal events and activities, and better flight and hotel availability,” announced Delta Vacations President Kama Winters. “Whether you’d like to browse Christmas markets in Copenhagen, take a winter cruise through the Rhine Valley, or ice skate outdoors on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, Delta can connect customers to beautiful destinations and experiences across the world.”
