Delta has announced a number of enhancements to its premium economy (branded Premium Select) service.

Starting this week customers now receive a revamped meal service, with main courses served on bagasse plates made from sugarcane plant fibre, with linen tableware and napkins, and silver cutlery.

Highlighted menu options include braised beef short rib with fingerling potatoes and dijon green peppercorn jus; Impossible Meatballs with polenta, pomodorini sauce and broccolini; and honey harissa chicken thighs with jollof rice and stewed greens.

Delta said that Premium Select customers would also benefit from “more dedicated service touchpoints throughout their flight”, including a new ‘bubbles and bites’ service offered shortly after takeoff, consisting of sparkling wine, water and a snack basket. A vanilla and orange peel oshibori hand towel will also be handed out before the first meal.

Meanwhile from October premium economy customers will receive new handmade amenity kits from Mexican firm Somewhere Somewhere, featuring products by Grown Alchemist. The bags come in three designs, and have been created exclusively for the US carrier.

Delta launched its Premium Select cabin on the carrier’s A350 aircraft in 2017, and last year announced plans to offer the product on all European flights by summer 2022.

Commenting on the news Mauricio Parise, vice president of brand experience, said:

“Delta Premium Select sits at the intersection of luxury and practicality – giving customers the opportunity to treat themselves to a more spacious seat and premium experience at a lower price point compared to our Delta One cabin.

“We continue to debut premium products designed for the future of travel, with differentiated offerings that give our customers the experiences they crave.”

The news comes as rival US carrier American Airlines this week announced plans for a new premium economy seat, which will debut on its A321XLR and B787-9 aircraft from 2024.
