In an age where it seems as if every airline is taking away all the supposed perks of flying—like, you know, a free carry-on bag—Delta is defying its no-perks peers by offering up free meals to all customers on its longest domestic flights.
The airline announced today that customers on its flights between John F. Kennedy International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport or San Francisco International Airport will score complimentary meals, no matter their cabin class, starting March 1. Other routes will soon follow, including flights from Boston, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. (You can check out the exact routes affected here.)

Take a morning flight, and you might be treated to a Luvo breakfast medley, honey maple breakfast sandwich, or a fruit and cheese platter that we admit looks rather appetizing. Afternoon customers will be able to choose from a mesquite-smoked turkey combo, a whole grain veggie wrap, or that same yummy-looking fruit and cheese plate, while overnight fliers won't be left out: they'll be offered a breakfast bar just before landing, Delta says. The company expects to refresh its menu based on the season and what's locally available, according to the press release.
