The additional menu options will launch this month in Delta One and First Class and on select flights 900 miles and greater.

“Not only are plant-based meats like Impossible™ Burger delicious to eat, but they’re also often better for the environment using far less land and water to produce,” said Kristen Manion Taylor, Senior Vice President – Inflight Service. “These new options are one part of Delta’s broader mission to promote a wellness focused travel journey.”

Delta has also started a loyalty offer with Instacart and added inflight entertainment with Peloton and Spotify.
