Delta Air Lines is trialing a new upgraded food service on some international flights with restaurant-style three-course meals with cocktails, even for those in economy.
The new menu is being testing out on flights from Portland, Oregon to Tokyo and could be rolled out elsewhere on its international network if it is successful.
It begins with 'welcome bubbles', made up of a choice of three Bellinis or a sparkling soft drink.
Meal choices are offered on a printed menu card and served on while plates with real cloth napkins.
Options include a salad with quinoa appetizer, a main course of pasta with cauliflower in a cream sauce and a dessert of Häagen-Dazs ice cream.
The airline said: "Delta constantly listens to customer feedback and is now testing innovative ways to make our culinary experience on board feel more like dining at a favourite restaurant.
"As part of that we are conducting a test on select international flights where flight attendants will deliver an enhanced main cabin dining experience that we'll use to gather customer feedback."
