Beginning September 13, Delta Airlines will be serving up an exclusively crafted series of the celebrity chef’s meals to its passengers.
Well, those in the high-priced BusinessElite seats, at least.

Meals will initially only be available on flights from Kennedy International Airport to Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle. --Joanne Green
