Is anyone aware of what routes Delta Connection is offering meals in First Class on? Are they the same meals as on Delta, or something else?

Meals on DL connection... that is good for a laugh. I cannot even get a meal on ATL-DEN, a 3 hour flight almost.

I think it is disgraceful that DL doesnt even serve meals in F class unless the flight is over 1500 miles...AA serves meals on flights over 2 hours.

Are the CRJs and ERJs that are outfitted with first class have the galley space necessary for serving meals? I cant imagine they do, but maybe I am wrong!

Im a Gold Medallion FF on Delta and I'll tell you that I am routinely on flights to and from Alaska from SLC and LAX to ANC or FAI in the summer and there are not always meals on those flights so, I dont expect they are going to be putting meals on the connection flights. Has anyone actually had a mean on a DL connection flight?

The best example of when there should be a meal as far as departure time and flight lengh goes is on the DL553 from IAH to SLC (one of my normal flights), 3:23 scheduled flight time, no meal. Just crackers and drinks, it seems CRAZY to have no food in first on a 7:50a departure for a 3+ hour flight. I have never had any food on a DL conx flight and I did recently do first class on a CRJ900 from Calgary to Salt Lake (but it looks like the -900 is off that run for now), the seats were nice but the same snack service as coach.

SLC-YYZ on Skywest, and I think CVG-BOS on Comair might as well.


The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

I know Shuttle America offers meals on LGA-MDW, LGA-ATL, JFK-ATL, JFK-DFW, and ATL-KIN.... just wondering what other routes may have them, and what other carriers. According the the Shuttle America F/A I spoke to while in ATL last week they are now using glass in First Class too. Is this coming to the other Delta Connection carriers too?

At least here in Europe they serve meals on CRJ's 200/900.........IB regional (Air Nostrum) does it even in Y on their longest flights

Ya, I got two flights in F coming up with DL that are 2.5hr in length and no meals either way even though both occur during the lunch hour. For the money I am paying I think next time I may look at either AA or CO.

I was shocked to get a hot meal in FC on my flight from ATL-JFK in BizElite on 777....maybe because the flight was going on to BOM??

Ya, someone inside DL would have to answer that one. ATL-DFW is about the same distance and your lucky to get anything more than peanuts and a drink in F class.....pitiful really.

JFK-ATL, LGA-ATL, BOS-ATL and BOS-CVG all receive a "snack" (breakfast is a Continental spread with cereal, yoghurt, fruit and a croissant; lunch/dinner is a wrap, pizza or something else light) for competitive reasons. These are the only 4 routes to my knowledge outside the 1550 mile threshold that receive meals.

Shuttle America :

JFK-ATL
JFK-DFW
LGA-MDW
ATL-KIN

(BOS-CVG is NOT a meal service)

These are all that I'm aware of...correct me if I'm wrong!

On the mainline flights BOS-CVG is a meal service in F. Didn't know if it transferred over to the CRJ-900 flights, but on the 737s that fly the route, F does get food.

Write a letter or email to Delta and complain about it.

Just got word from the Customer Services people in CVG, these flights now offer food as well...

Perhaps someone is watching?
