Does anyone know what their options are? Has anyone flown Delta or can vouch for the edible-ness of their meals?

I dunno about Delta, but whatever stuff British Airways serves, it was AMAZING.

Delta was o.K. on business class, you have a large selection of veggies. I can´t say for economy class.

It's domestic, but across the country. Six hour flight or so. Hm. Maybe I'll treck along some snacks and not worry what they serve. Thanks guys.

I just flew delta this week & requested a "vegetarian" meal. "Vegetarian" means vegan - "lacto-ovo vegetarian" is the only other veg choice.



Here is what I had:



Portland --> Dallas: bagel w/Promise margarine & strawberry jam, corn flakes, soy milk, banana.



Dallas --> Boston: grilled veg sandwich (dunno if the bread was vegan), cape cod potato chips (mmm!), red apple, bag of raisins



On my way back...



Boston --> Atlanta: pretzels



Atlanta --> Portland: The flight offered food to purchase!! So I bought some food in the airport but it was nearly impossible to find anything vegan. I ended up buying an onion bagel, plain, and a "salad" (which was that iceberg lettuce salad mix in a bowl with lite italian dressing).



On the flight, they sold food from some catering company - it was not vegan at all. The three sandwich choices were a club, turkey, or beef sandwich. They had cookies or cake you could buy. They did have one salad but it was not vegan - it had cheese in it. Not to mention it was $8.



So be sure to ask at the gate if food is served - you might have to get something in the terminal. Also, don't forget to call 48 hours in advance to make sure they have you listed as pure vegetarian!!

Nice food! Over here (UK) you don't get meals as part of your flight price anymore and you have to pay for them. But last time I went on holiday I did get a meal. I choose the veggie option and it looked rather inedible. (Not that I got to eat because I was too busy being sick and fearing for my life) :P
