Delta Air Lines has tapped the restaurateur behind cult burger brand Shake Shack and New York dining destination Union Square Cafe to create a special express in-flight menu for business class passengers.
The US carrier has teamed up with Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group to develop a new menu that will deliver an abbreviated version of its business class service for flyers who prefer relaxing and sleeping on flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and London.
The new Express Meals menu will be developed by chefs at the USHG’s Blue Smoke restaurant, who will also create a signature cocktail for the in-flight dining program. The program debuts next February.
Delta has worked with popular US chefs like Michael Chiarello and Michelle Bernstein to develop previous menus. This past spring, Meyer also opened his first airport outposts of Shake Shack and Blue Smoke on the Road at Delta’s new JFK Terminal 4.
