I love flying Delta and seeing what’s new. Take the above as one tiny example. Normally, for years and years, Delta has had some kind of standard hanger and sometimes has tags where the FA can write down manually your seat row and number. However, much of the time those are not stocked and the result is a Coca Cola napkin is skewered and the info is scribbled onto it.
With this handy new Delta branded hanger not only are they saving paper (good for the environment) but also it is a quick way to spin the dials to where you are sitting. Such a simple but brilliant idea. I love this kind of “Keep Climbing” Delta thinking.
Then we have some new goodies in the 1st class snack basket to liven things up. We have an organic new type of chip. I know it is organic because it is stated so no less than SIX TIMES on the front of the bag! 😉
While this may sound like a strange combination of stuff for a chip I really liked it a lot. But don’t think just cuz they advertise only 80 grams of calories these are a super healthy alternative. As a comparison “Cape Cod Kettle Chips” by weight would have 100 grams. I guess if you went for 2 bags then the calories would add up. Either way, I enjoyed these and would grab them again.
Having just praised Delta for the two above items one thing I am not happy with at all is the change of pretzels to these horrid gluten-free things seasoned with olive oil and sea salt. Oh my, they are just nasty. Once you are done your tongue has some kind of coating that feels like you just ran it across the bottom of your shoe (I did not test that btw nor am I recommending it to test)! Maybe it is just me and others think these new “enhanced” sticks are amazing. You tell me.
Have you seen other tiny but meaningful changes Delta has been making that is impacting your travels in a good (or bad) way? Let us all know and comment below! – René
