Delta brings back complimentary beer and wine

By Rick Lundstrom

Beginning July 2, domestic First Class and Comfort+ passengers on Delta Air Lines will see complimentary beer and wine on all flights greater than 500 miles.

Single-serve red and white wine, as well as Heineken, Miller Lite, SweetWater 420 and SweetWater IPA will be back on board.

“In keeping with the Delta CareStandard, our goal is to serve all of our food and beverage offerings in the safest way possible – both for our customers and employees,” said Allison Ausband, Delta’s Senior Vice President of In-Flight Service in today’s announcement. “We take pride in always listening to our customers, and we know beer and wine are the adult beverages our customers want most. These selections are the first step towards a normalized beverage offering while we continue to keep customer and crew safety at the center of everything we do.”

Flight attendants will pass the cans and single-serve bottles using serving trays to minimize touch points on-board. Since beer and wine selections have fewer touch points than other adult beverage options and are individually contained, they are the first to be reintroduced on-board as Delta brings back food and beverage options.

Complimentary beer, wine and cocktails remain available to all cabins on long-haul international routes, including premium spirits and sommelier-selected wines for passengers in Delta One. On-board service adjustments like individual snack bags on domestic flights and other U.S. domestic offerings remain in place.
