Is Delta Air Lines unleashing their inner foodie?
Last week, the mothership announced redesigned meals and special Welcome Aboard cocktails for Main Cabin passengers on international flights. The idea is really impressive and implementation will be the key if it is to again set Delta apart from other airlines.
And yesterday, the Reagan Washington National (DCA) Sky Club hosted an event themed around celebrity chef Jet Tila. (Only fitting that a chef named “Jet” featured in a Delta Sky Club!) 😉

A special tasting of Chef Tila’s food was offered. His book 101 Asian Dishes You Need to Cook Before You Die: Discover a New World of Flavors in Authentic Recipes was also available.

Many Sky Clubs offer dishes designed by local chefs. Marjorie Meek-Bradley‘s creations are featured at the aforementioned DCA Sky Club. Selections from Ethan Stowell are available at the Seattle flagship lounge and new Phoenix club. Lemongrass’ Mai Pham created food for the SFO Sky Club. Chef Iliana de la Vega was part of the Austin Sky Club opening.
Personally, I am really impressed with how Delta consistently sets themselves apart — in a positive way — from the other airlines. While United may have some nice clubs, and AA clubs have good hand made guacamole, I think I would rather spend time in a Delta Sky Club.
Is anyone else hungry to visit a Sky Club and enjoy award-winning chef prepped dishes? 🙂 — Chris
