First – allow me to apologize for basically shutting the site down for much of the past 2 days. My technical abilities are not quite as good as I think they are, and in the process of doing something small, I managed to make a mess. It’s all fixed now.
Anyway, Delta is upping its game in coach on its flights across the Atlantic. They just announced that they’ll offer new sleepkits (these will be available on all long-haul flights), featuring eyeshades and earplugs and some other crap.
On European flights of less than 3,850 miles, they’ll be offering, get this, a full bottle of water (they made it sound like a big deal), and, more importantly, mid-flight ice cream. Come summer, longer European flights will also enjoy water and ice cream.
I have a vague recollection of coming back from Europe on Northwest Airlines roughly a billion years ago and getting ice cream.
Nice to see an airline adding, rather than taking away. And who doesn’t like ice cream?
