This Wednesday I will be flying from FLL to LGA on Delta's 7:50 am flight. On Saturday, I will be doing the return on their 8:55 pm flight. Both flights are shown as serving a 'snack.' My question is if the 'snacks' will be served in the SkyDeli bags, or on the longer snack flights do they actually come around and serve them on trays? What can I expect? Thanks!  Smile

when it is "ski deli" it usually sais that. They come around with a small snack. First class will usally get a salad while coach will usually get some cookies or something.

It only says 'snack' in the flight information area. I want to know whether they hand out SkyDeli bags on the longer flights, or if they actually come around and serve you a snack like cereal or something like that.

They will come around with something. When they gove a ski deli, they actually say "ski deli" instead of "snack", they will come around with a little something.

Your morning flight will be a snack service, meaning you'll probably have one of their (in)famous Sky Deli meals Your return flight will be a snack service meaning a few packs of snack mix. Most flights after 8:00 pm usually don't have a meal service other than a snack.

On an ELP-ATL-BOS route last summer our flight was listed with a "snack" service. On both flights we received a small plastic tray with a pita, chips, apple, cookie, and bottle of water.

Worst snack I ever had was a "sugar cookie" on US.

I might add that these are essentially the same contents as a Sky Deli bag. You get a bottle of water, usually a sandwich (muffin in the morning), fruit, and one or two other packaged items.

As long as the contents are fresh it shouldn't be that bad.

Hello,
I don't know about long haul flights on Delta but my experience on a Shuttle flight from LaGuardia and Washington National few weeks ago is one of the best flights I ever had.
Despite the very short flight (less than 40 minutes on air) flight attendants served us a bag with bagel, jam and orange juice in the morning and a vimini basket with cookies and sweeties in the return flight. If you add that DL Shuttle aircraft (B737-800) have an internal configuration like a Business class with automatic retractabble monitors, leather seats, great seat pitch and so on, I would say that DL service is great.

Ciao

Stefano

Hey...

I've flow DL658 and DL447 many times. I'm a f/a for DAL. DL658 (FLL-LGA), we usually give out cereal, with a fruit, either apple or bannana. A "treat" of somesort (i.e. Cookie, brownie, rasberry pound cake). And your choice of beverage. The cereal is served with 2% milk, and is usually Special K. On DL447 (LGA-FLL), there iusually a turkey/ham/ or some sort of cold sandwhich. A salad, with our own dressing, (very good), and a snack (cookoe/brownie, etc), and a fruit dish. with grapes.. and apple. I fly LGA-FLL about 2X a week, and this is pretty much what we serve on these particular flights. Hope this can help you

~I would just liek to point out infact, that everyone is so quick to critisize Delta over something as stupid as the meal you are served onboard. Being fed on a 2 or 3 hr flight, should not be all that important. So what? Yu don't get a 3 coarse meal. there are many other much more important thing than the meal... like safety!!! It's a plane ride for pete sakes! lol... Some of you ppl should really listen to how you sound!

But Delta_fly_boy, do you realize that here in Europe, even on a one hour flight, you are served breakfast with two rounds of drinks? I think that's what people are criticizing, and not the fact that you are served at all.

The last flight I took from Vienna to Brussels lasted only 1 and half hours, but it was a wonder to see the two tiny flight attendants working the food carts. Within 10 minutes after take-off, they were already pushing those carts through the tiny Avro. Within half an hour, everyone was efficiently fed, and they were already beginning to serve beverages.

I've seen this on all the European flights I've ever taken. My God, Austrian airlines even serves warm breakfasts between LHR and VIE, a 90 minute flight!

Steman....considering what they CHARGE on the Shuttle....they darn well OUGHT to give you a bagel! hehe. I remember when Pan Am first started up their shuttle in competition with Eastern. Pan Am did its ticketing on the ground...and so could serve a snack on board. Eastern didn't want to give up its inflight ticketing, but had to compete, and so THEY served a snack too. I remember one full flight on an Eastern A-300 when the poor FAs literally ran down the aisles almost throwing bags of goodies at the passengers trying to serve everyone before landing. And those snack bags had enough in them to nibble on for a week! I guess they didnt want people complaining about what was in the snack bag, and asking for something else, so they included almost everything they could think of.

As long as some European airlines are state subsidized and can afford such fine service at normal prices, there'll be a big difference between US and European service.

That SkyDeli stuff has to go. I got food poisoning from one of those stupid cold sandwiches. I would much rather have a bag of peanuts than one of those dang sandwiches any day. At least I would not get sick from peanuts, unless they were laced with something. Continental has better service in coach. I received a cheeseburger, chips, fruit, cookies, and water, plus the regular soda or tea and the burger was served very hot. But, of course, Midwest Express is absolutely the best. I have received decent meals that will fill you up and the service from the FA's is practically non-stop.

When they say 'snack' service they mean a snack, which could be considered a light meal.
A service of only peanuts or pretzels or snack mix would be considered a beverage service.

Some people in here are completely giving you the wrong information. The 7:50 Am Flight will be a breakfast skydeli meal. Chances are it will contain a bannana, cereal, milk, crappy muffin, orange juice, and a couple other things. The 8:55PM flight will probably be a sub sandwich, sunchips, cookies, a fruit, and some other things. The morning sky deli really isnt to good in my opinion. The dinner one is very good. The sandwich is good, chips are great, and i had some really good cookies in my last one. Considering it will be around 9:30 in the evening you reach cruising the snack turns out to be extremely convinient, and im sure you will be satisfied. But best of all is the aircrafts...Right. A 763, and 767, gee your really lucky. Ide trade in a 767 for another airlines say Md80 or 727 any day. Enjoy your flights.

Thanks. I definitly will enjoy the 2nd flight. There is hardly anybody on that flight at all. The first one, to LGA, is completely packed. Oh well, at least I have an aisle on both flights, and not a middle seat.
