Delta Air Lines is trying to keep safety a priority while still offering flyers a comfortable and enjoyable experience. With the goal of decreasing touch points on the plane, travelers in all cabin classes on domestic flights will receive a personal snack bag.
Delta announced the debut of the snack bag last Thursday. Not only is the snack bag full of goodies, but once you are done, it doubles as a trash bag. While offerings may change, currently, the snack bags offer an 8.5 ounce bottle of water, along with Biscoff cookies and Cheez-It crackers. Once you are done, you can use the provided hand sanitizing wipe as well as cocktail napkin to clean up.
Flyers will get their snack bags very early on in the flight. Flight attendants will pass them out when they make their first rounds through the cabin. However, Delta did mention that the snack bag items will be based on availability. If the snack bag doesn't appeal to you, that's okay. Delta said that passengers can still bring their own food as well as non-alcoholic beverages on board.
While domestic travelers will get a snack bag, those on long-haul overseas flights will still enjoy in-flight services and meal choices, in addition to a large selection of beverages. Keep in mind these in-flight services and meal choices have been temporarily streamlined as the battle against COVID-19 continues.
For those who don't already know, Delta is taking multiple steps to make flying safer for passengers and crew. In a bid to make social distancing easier, Delta decided to block middle seats and reduce the number of passengers per flight. Delta is taking other steps as well, and you can see how the carrier is making changes to keep you safe by checking out its coronavirus update page.
