Delta Air Lines is re-imagining its inflight dining program for main cabin customers. Beginning June 1, Flight Fuel will replace the EATS menu on flights over 900 miles in North America. According to Delta,
“The newly branded Flight Fuel program extends far beyond a name change, it’s really about introducing multiple new menu offerings and providing transparency into ingredient and allergen information for customers,” said Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President of In-Flight Service. “This latest enhancement is another step in the right direction for Delta as we continue to improve the overall customer experience and provide a variety of fresh, healthy options in flight.”
Three Flight Fuel Menus
- Flight Fuel – most flights over 900 miles
- Flight Fuel Premium – on the premium routes between JFK and LAX/SFO
- Flight Fuel Hawaii – flights to/from Hawaii
The Flight Fuel menus will feature refreshed snack boxes, including the U.S. airline industry’s first non-GMO snack box called “Crave, Crunch, and Tapas” which looks delicious! Other features include a fruit and cheese plate, turkey sandwich with chips and a brownie, continental breakfast, and breakfast sandwich options. These join three Luvo wraps that were introduced in February.
Delta’s buy on board menu has been one of my favorites, and the latest changes make it even better. I’m looking forward to sampling a few of the new items after June 1.

[…] Delta introducing new economy buy on board concept starting June 1 […]
I think the big win here is the separate menu for Hawaii flights, especially on the longer flights from ATL/MSP/JFK, etc.
I agree, Disco. I also like Brad’s pre-order idea.
Options look great. Now if they could just add the ability to pre-purchase before the flight so you could guarantee you get your choice.
