This is normally not my first choice when being offered. Not that I am actively avoiding it but since FEBO is sorta / kinda / maybe followed by Delta FAs (despite the official policy from Delta) sometimes I cannot avoid getting this option so how about an honest review.
As you can see from the photo above the meal is of decent size and quantify, that is, you will not be hungry when you get done with this meal (but with all the carbs you will be sleepy).
The flavor is not half bad. Personally I would like an even more intense herb flavor in the tomato sauce and I did add some pepper liberally to take it up a notch. Perhaps some kind of side packet with extra could be offered for almost no material food cost, Delta?
Cheese wise, since it is a 3 cheese pasta after all, was just ok. Again, I would have liked to have had just a touch more cheese flavor. Perhaps, a stronger type of cheese could have been included as one of the three chosen. Then again I like very strong cheeses so I could be somewhat jaded in my palate.
The Cabernet Sauvignon wine included on this flight was a decent one (if not all that expensive). It worked well with the pasta and the salad that was fresh and crisp as it usually is each meal. I can not remember the last time I had a wilted side salad from Delta so kudos to them here.
The bread was warm and my only complaint here is FAs tend to take too long to come back to give you the bread and I had to wait quite a while to get the above shot that is I could have eaten half of my meal before they came by with bread choices.
Most readers know I am really a big fan of Delta food. They tend to do a very good job and I am rarely dissatisfied and the same goes for this meal. While not my first choice it did not disappoint other than as already mentioned it did make me rather sleepy. – René
