Delta Air Lines is introducing sleep kits for its international economy customers. The kits contain eye shades and ear plugs.
In addition, customers on all trans-Atlantic flights of 3,850 miles or less from the U.S. to Europe will receive a full-size bottle of water following meal service and updated snack offerings for morning and afternoon/evening arrivals. A mid-flight ice cream service will also be offered on these flights returning from Europe to the U.S. Delta will expand these improvements to longer-haul international flights in early summer. Finally, domestic First Class customers as well as Economy customers on domestic and international flights will be offered newly upgraded earbuds for use with Delta’s entertainment systems.
Hydration and quiet are good things to have on an international flight. As for the earbuds, I usually travel with my Bose headphones, but find the airline offered earbuds to be supremely uncomfortable when I’ve been forced to use them. Glad to see something better offered.
