Delta Air Lines is updating its premium economy offering to Delta Premium Select. With the upgrade, the airline will be introducing new locally-inspired meals and hand-crafted amenities. Starting in the coming weeks, the update to Premium Select will also expand Delta’s partnership with socially engaged B Corporation, Someone Somewhere.
Updated Delta Premium Select experience
Introduced in February 2022, Delta’s Premium Select class is the American airline’s premium economy offering, featuring wider seats, deeper recline and adjustable foot and leg rests, as well as priority check-in, security and baggage service. The offering is available on the majority of Delta’s long-haul international flights.
Starting on 20 September 2022, the premium economy will now also offer an improved dining experience featuring new options inspired by local cuisine. These include, among others, braised beef short rib with fingerling potatoes and dijon green peppercorn jus, Impossible Meatballs with polenta, pomodorini sauce and broccolini, or honey harissa chicken thighs with jollof rice and stewed greens.
Mike Henny, Managing Director of Onboard Service, understands that inflight meals are an important part of the service delivered by the airline.
“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.”
Driving social impact with Someone Somewhere
Starting in October, Delta’s updated experience will also feature new hand-made amenity kits provided by Someone Somewhere, containing organic skincare products from Grown Alchemist and other travel essentials. These new amenity bags are part of Delta’s longstanding partnership with the organisation and are made from recycled and locally sourced materials.
Someone Somewhere is a Mexican company that offers job opportunities to artisans living in poverty across the country, and works to improve their income and living conditions. They are a certified B Corporation, and work to promote traditional artisanal techniques, and appeal to a socially conscious market.
