We love helping you save money while traveling (see: the round-trip tickets to Costa Rica we told you about for under $200, the $105 round-trip tickets to Puerto Rico, and the super cool way you can get your American Airlines tickets for cheaper than ever). That’s why we know you’re gonna want to know about the awesome new way that Delta Airlines will be saving you money on your next trip with two short, yet oh-so-fulfilling words: free food!


That’s right, the fine folks over at Delta have just announced that they will begin serving complimentary meals on select routes beginning March 1. Transcontinental passengers traveling from New York City’s JFK airport to LAX or SFO will be the first to enjoy the fresh food, soon-to-be followed by various other flights toward the end of April.

If you happen to be flying in the morning, you’ll be able to choose between a honey maple breakfast sandwich, a continental breakfast, or a fruit and cheese plate. Daytime travelers can opt for a mesquite-smoked turkey combo, a Luvo Mediterranean whole grain veggie wrap, or, again, a fruit and cheese plate, and overnight peeps will be offered a breakfast bar which we can only assume has (what else!?) fruit and cheese.


Would free food make you more likely to opt for one airline over another? Let us know @BritandCo!
