Delta Introduces Sleep Kits & Ice Cream in Coach for Trans-Atlantic Flights

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?

  1. I don’t think you’re quite fixed yet – your posts aren’t showing up in Feedly. According to my feedly account your last post was the payphone one on March 31. I have no idea how to fix it, but FYI and good luck!

    • I made a DNS-related change, which took me a day to fix. Unfortunately those changes take 2 days or so to fully propegate across the internet. I still have one browser that’s messed up. I’m really sorry (it’s very annoying), but come Monday, it will be all better. Unless it’s not.

  2. Confirmed fixed! You made it to Feedly today.

    • Phew! I made one, small (albeit important) stupid mistake on Wednesday and it basically knocked the site out for 4 days. Well done, Blank.
