There will be gourmet dinner entrees, such as seared beef tenderloin over risotto, roasted chicken breast and vegetables, and delicious delights such as fine pastas and sauces, as well as the first clas favorite, seared scallops.

First class customers will also be rewarded with appetizers, fresh salad, fruit, cheese, warm nuts, and ice cream sundaes while in route to Bogota. Delta’s Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson, has also spiffed up their wine list to include top shelf vintages and delectable varietals.

Travelers will also be able chose from upgraded in-flight entertainment, including a wide range of in-seat movies, pre-recorded T.V programs, games, and music.
