Hi All,

Delta's website indicates that it offers free meals in economy on select flights to Hawaii. Are these meals similar to or different from those Delta offers on international flights?

Thanks, Soxfan  Smile

Haha, so I apparently got some people spun-up. I'll try again, more carefully.

On Delta's long domestic flights, I have received the following meal:
Chicken and rice in a creamy sauce, with a itty bitty salad, and a piece of chocolate cake.
It was pretty good, in spite of being smallish, and I was generally pleased with it.

I can't compare it to international Y on Delta, as I haven't flown Delta internationally for reasons which I should refrain from mentioning, in the interest of good taste and/or relevance.

Hope that keeps things calm, AND simultaneously answers the question!

Delta's got a perfectly decent Y product in the US- I suspect you'll have a fine flight.

In F class on a flight last thursday from SLC-MSP, the DINNER flight was a half a turkey sandwich-on a hard roll,1 thin slice of turkey, 1 thin slice of plastic cheese, 1 thin slice of lettuce, 2 slices of rancid tomatoe,served on a china plate. a small bag of potato chips, a small dish of fruit- 9 grapes, a rotten strawberry and 1/2 slice of pineapple, along with a ginger snap cookie.

Since I recently took a trip to Hawaii from MSP through ATL, and was compiling info for a trip report, I can show you the main meal on the ATL/HNL flight. The return leg just had a different entree. I believe the MSP flight sees the same size meal. I'm not sure 100% about the SLC and West Coast flights, but I believe the meal is either the same or similar.

I was impressed with how good it was. I'd eat that meal anywhere, except for where I'm paying for a meal of course! That flight included a significant pre-landing snack too. You shouldn't go hungry. Props to DL for bringing true service back to NW flights!

You can be sure a few bucks of your ticket price went to pay for that meal.  Wink

For sure, but since my charges weren't itemized, I'll consider it "complimentary".  Wink

It was certainly a nice change from virtually nothing served when I flew MSP/HNL over a year ago.

Does UA serve anything from ORD-HNL?

Not anymore. It is all "Food for Purchase" now. I was fortunate enough to fly the ORD-OGG flight just months before United stopped serving complementary meals on the Hawaii routes. The meals were hot meals of substantial proportions and I believe we got the standard choice of chicken or beef.

Since we're talking about economy meals...does anyone know if there are vegetarian options on board AA international flights to Europe (Barcelona specifically) or would someone have to special order it?
