Delta Airlines’ in-flight meal services recently got a cheesy makeover, and the company also announced a very of-the-times change to its snack boxes.
Adding some depth to Delta’s food offerings, the new Flight Fuel program features fruits and cheeses from New York’s popular Murray’s Cheese and a non-GMO snack box with full ingredient and allergen labeling. The Tapas Snack Box, which is also the biggest of the three snack packages, offers eight non-GMO bites, including crackers, chocolate, almonds, hummus and more. Murray’s is only available on the premium menu, which is exclusive to flights between New York’s JFK airport and San Francisco’s SFO or Los Angeles’s LAX airports.
This announcement comes about a week after GMOs were given the general thumbs-up for consumption by the National Academy of Sciences. So yes, Delta’s non-GMO snacks are an industry first, but they now also might be an industry-only.
