Delta is unveiling a refreshed Delta Premium Select (DPS) cabin experience, featuring locally-inspired dining, premium hand-crafted amenities through its Someone Somewhere partnership.

Delta debuted DPS in 2017 on select trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic routes, and the airline has since expanded the product to more routes and aircraft types.

Starting today, Delta Premium Select passengers will enjoy an elevated dining experience that offers more options infused with local flavors.

“At Delta, we know a good meal can make a great experience on Delta flights even better,” said Mike Henny, Managing Director of Onboard Service, in today’s announcement. “When designing our Delta Premium Select menu, we reimagined our food and beverage offerings from scratch, and we’re excited to launch delicious new offerings that also highlight our premium service and culture of innovation.”

DPS menu options will include meals like braised beef short rib with fingerling potatoes and dijon green peppercorn jus; Impossible Meatballs with polenta, pomodorini sauce and broccolini; honey harissa chicken thighs with jollof rice and stewed greens; and for dessert, mango mousse with mango passion fruit compote.

Passengers will be served their main courses on bagasse plates made from sugarcane plant fiber, with linen tableware and napkins, silver flatware and glassware. And they’ll enjoy more dedicated service touchpoints throughout their flight, like a special ‘bubbles and bites’ moment, with sparkling wine, water and a special treat shortly after takeoff, as well as a premium snack basket.

Beginning in October, Delta will phase in new handmade amenity kits by Someone Somewhere featuring Grown Alchemist travel essentials and other premium essentials that make the journey more enjoyable. The new Delta Premium Select amenity kits will come in three new designs that Someone Somewhere artisans created exclusively for Delta. Special for the month of October, select Delta flights leaving the U.S. will feature a pink kit to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month as part of Delta’s support of breast cancer awareness, research and education.

Passengers will also enjoy specially curated, natural skincare products by Grown Alchemist, a leading force in clean beauty. Customers can keep hydrated with vanilla watermelon lip balm, found in their kits, and refresh with a vanilla and orange peel oshibori hand towel, which will be handed out before the first meal.

Other premium amenities, including a memory-foam pillow, noise-canceling headsets and plush blanket made from recycled materials, are also designed to make the in-flight experience more comfortable and relaxing.

Delta Premium Select offers travelers more space to stretch out and relax with a wider seat, additional recline, and an adjustable footrest and leg rest on most long-haul international flights.
