Happy Four Day Week, Americans! Happy Regular-Sized Week, Everyone Else! We’re back with another edition of the Fly&Dine Interview + Giveaway series and this time it’s with Rene of Delta Points. Rene is the go-to guy for all things Delta on Boarding Area and he was also one of the first to welcome me into the Boarding Area fold. Check out his thoughts on Delta food and more, then scroll down to this week’s giveaway question for your chance to win $50 to Starbucks! First, let’s get to that interview:
1. What’s your favorite thing to eat on Delta flights? Anything that you have to order every single time you fly?
Delta surprisingly has a BUNCH of good eats on-board and clearly most are in 1st class. I LOVE the cold steak and potato salad dish. Could eat it almost every flight. The steaks on international flights are often very good as well as the BBQ chicken transcon. Then there is the travel treats snack box. If I am stuck in coach I always get one of those. Just nummy.
I would have to say Atlanta. I love 1 flew south and PF Changs there. I love ATL because they have the SkyDeck in the F concourse Skyclub and XpressSpa’s all over the place. Detroit is a close 2nd and the sampler at Chili’s is always good! I loved the Chili’s in ATL that is now PF Changes and the view was the best for tail watching! 🙂
Boy this is hard for me to answer as I flew 105 segments on Delta last year and then the rest were AF & KLM. Those were all regional but you do get some food there that can be totally OK for a short 1-2hr hop. The only other flight I had to compare the year before was Lufthansa 1st class. Now that is just such a step up from Delta (but as Gary always says Delta does not have real 1st class)!
Thanks Jason for letting me share my Delta travel foodie stuff. One last thing I have to say is always the best on Delta and hits the spot is an ice cream sundae and brandy after dinner. That is the way to end a meal at 32k!
Great! Thanks, Rene. I need to get to one of those SkyClubs to check everything out! Now let’s get this giveaway started. All you have to do is answer this week’s question by the end of Sunday night. Leave your answer in the comments. Ready? Here we go:
