On Thursday, Delta Air Lines announced that the customers can treat themselves with a complimentary glass of Prosecco in-flight.
The airline introduces that the Avissi Prosecco will now be available on all international flights for passengers. But it has not been confirmed yet whether this deal will continue to flights in the United States. In the flight, passengers have always had the option to choose between spirits, beer, white wine and red wine.
Although recently, those people who were sitting in the first class section of the aircraft were served with the Prosecco for free. Now, all passengers those are flying internationally can take the advantage of choosing favorite drinks from the newly enhanced alcoholic beverage list.
Delta’s Vice President of On-Board Services, Lisa Bauer said, “Sparkling wine is often the first choice for a celebration and we know how special it is for people to jet off on a trip so we wanted to bring the celebration to them.”
He added, “Offering complimentary chef-curated food and drinks throughout the flight is one of the things that set Delta apart and we’re upping the ante again with our mini bottles of Prosecco.”
The Delta’s Master Sommelier will offer the multiple flavors that are inspired by a selection of wines for the Delta one and the business class passengers. The sommelier of airline reportedly tasted more than 1,300 wines to create a selective list that pairs well with the in-flight experience of the customers.
- In May, the airline announced that it would start the complimentary Prosecco service for those passengers who are flying in the first class of the aircraft.
- The Delta airlines offer free texting & Prosecco to the customers.
- The customers seated in the main cabin could order a glass of Avissi or La Marca Prosecco, but they have to be paid for this.
The airline wrote in May, “The airline is committed to offering an ever-changing variety of fresh, local and seasonal food and beverage options to enhance the onboard customer experience.”
But, this deal may not be available to Delta customers flying in the U.S. The passengers who are heading to Europe from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York can enjoy the variety of fresh, seasonal food and beverage services.
This complimentary deal comes with the free in-flight text messaging offer. Passengers can send the text in flight by using WhatsApp, Facebook and iMessage Messenger.
Delta’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Tim Mapes said, “We know many of Delta’s customers want or need to stay connected in the air and on the ground, which is why we’re investing in an easy, free way to send and receive messages inflight through some of the most popular global platforms.”
He also remarked that “Coupled with our investments in seat-back screens, free entertainment, and High-Speed Wi-Fi, free messaging is one more way customers can choose how to make the most of their time on Delta flights.”
So, Delta is the first airline that offers in-flight texting capabilities to the passengers. From October 1, on all Gogo-enabled Delta flight, free mobile messaging was made available. But at this time the service, to send the text or video messages will not allow to passengers.
