Delta first introduced pre-select meals back in March 2018 on in select Delta One cabins departing from Atlanta and New York JFK. In December last year the airline announced that it was expanding the pre-select option globally as well as offering it on long-haul domestic routes where Delta One is offered.

Now Delta is going a step further.

As of this week passengers traveling in the front cabin on the majority of Delta’s domestic routes will have the option to pre-select their meals too.

Per Delta:

[P]re-select will expand to include mainline First Class flights where meals are offered — including domestic First Class routes and select flights between the U.S. and Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America — bringing the number of daily flights eligible for pre-select from 200 to more than 1,000.

Flyers booked into a Delta First Class cabin on a route where a meal is served will receive an email from Delta approximately 3 days prior to departure requesting them to select their first choice meal – the only thing needed to participate is a valid email address.

Note: Pre-select is not currently available on Delta Connection flights
