Delta Air Lines this month added more offerings to its existing inflight menu that debuted earlier this year. In an effort to put people, values, and diversity at the forefront, the Atlanta-based carrier has partnered with several companies, suppliers, and small businesses to help enhance passenger experience.

Refreshments in the sky

Brand new to the lineup of beverages includes Topo Chico’s strawberry guava-flavored hard seltzer. The refreshing gluten-free beverage is made with a blend of natural flavors and minerals to taste and is currently offered on all domestic flights. According to Delta, the seltzer is inspired by Topo Chico’s popular sparkling mineral water and brings a unique twist to classic flavors that passengers are sure to love.

Since summer, Delta has also worked towards offering Georgia-based Thrive Farmers tea on all flights. The airline said customers in all cabins can enjoy English breakfast tea and Delta One customers can choose between soothing Guizhou Green, floral Egyptian Chamomile, calming Pacific Peppermint, and malty Earl Grey teas.

According to Thrive Farmers, the company has an innovative farmer-direct model that gives growers around the world a true stake in the sale of their produce, resulting in predictable, stable, and higher incomes for farmers.

Kristen Manion Taylor, Delta’s Senior Vice President of In-Flight Service commented on the carrier’s mission to deliver an enjoyable inflight experience while simultaneously being a positive influence for people worldwide.

“We’re always listening to what our customers tell us they’d like to see onboard, and we’re giving them more of what they say they’re craving, while also making an impact in global communities. Our collaboration with brands like Thrive Farmers builds on our mission to partner with companies who do good in the world by enriching the lives of the people who create their products.”

Sweet bites to eat

To satisfy passengers’ sweet cravings, Delta also introduced new cookies onboard. In addition to the favored Biscoff cookies, the airline recently started offering chocolate chunk sea salt cookies from Seattle-based Bell’s Cookie Co. The family-owned business has become a popular place for sweet treats around the Emerald City since it started in 2019, and now has a place in the sky. Bell’s cookies are offered to first class passengers on flights 900 miles or longer departing from Seattle.

A sundae to remember

Ice Cream also flies at 35,000 feet with Delta’s newest partnership with High Road Craft. Over the summer, the carrier started serving gourmet vanilla ice cream on long-haul international flights. The collaboration hits close to home as High Road is based in Atlanta, Delta’s home base. According to a statement, High Road is the only craft ice cream maker in the United States and makes an all-natural product that is made from scratch.

Delta said passengers in Delta One can enjoy High Road’s Vanilla Fleur De Sel ice cream with a build-your-own sundae featuring toppings like morello cherry compote, chocolate sauce, and speculoos cookie crumbles. The airline also debuted the Delta Sundae, which is a similar offering available to passengers seated in other cabins.
