It’s been a while since I was on a lengthy enough Delta flight to enjoy a meal other than breakfast, so I thought a quick 10PM blog post was in order. I was traveling from San Francisco to Atlanta on a Delta A320. Not exactly the best equipment for a transcon flight, but I purposely chose seat 1C, a bulkhead aisle, for the flight based on some reviews I had read about tight pitch in the other seats. The seat turned out just fine, and hey…there was even a meal. The original plan was for a hot and cold choice, but the ovens on our A320 were out of service. A quick thinking red coat procured six sandwiches to replace the hot meal setup. The cold meal was a steak salad which I chose.

The salad turned out to be quite tasty with very fresh ingredients, a generous portion of steak, potatoes, and a side of fruit that was surprisingly fresh and good. Paired with a red wine, non Luxury Bar brand ;) and capped off with a brownie for dessert. Lunch was actually…..well…. good.

  1. MJ – I agree, one of the best domestic Delta meals you had there. Love the blue cheese crumbles too.

  5. Looks good, MJ. I’m looking forward to my lunch next week in F from SAN to ATL!
