Starting today, Delta is bringing back free meals to coach! Although, only with a few routes. How did it happen? WE DID! According to Time, Delta brought back the program after numerous customers filled out satisfaction cards revealing they preferred the service.

Delta said:

We are all about making our Main Cabin experience the best it can be for our customers and offering free, high-quality meals is a big part of that experience. When we tested this concept, our customers loved it and appreciated it so we are implementing [it] in our most strategic markets.

The selected routes with free meals are mostly the longest domestic flights, including: New York City’s JFK – LAX, and JFK and – Francisco on March 1. Later on April 24, it’ll expand to: Boston – SFO, LAX, – Seattle, JFK – Portland International/San Diego/Seattle, Seattle – Fort Lauderdale/Orlando/Raleigh-Durham, and Washington National – LAX.

Breakfast options will be: honey-maple breakfast sandwich, breakfast medley, or fruit-and-cheese plate. Meanwhile lunch can be a toss-up between a mesquite-smoked turkey combo, a Mediterranean whole-grain veggie wrap, and a fruit-and-cheese plate. For those crazy red eyes, expect a breakfast bar during the pre-arrival beverage service.
