Gourmet Dining Onboard Delta BusinessElite

While heightened security measures, routinely overbooked flights and the collective belt-tightening of the airline industry in response to rising fuel costs have all conspired to make American air travel a pain, at least one airline is doing its part to pamper frazzled passengers. With Delta's BusinessElite class, guests are given the luxury treatment from check-in to baggage claim, with accelerated security, priority boarding and expedited luggage retrieval all designed to minimize the hassle of travel. On board, kick back in front of one of 250 available movies or 150 TV programs, or, on domestic flights, stay connected with in-flight Internet service. Multi-course dining menus come courtesy of top toques Michelle Bernstein (Michy's, Sra. Martinez) and Michael Chiarello (Bottega), and feature wine pairings from Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. Once you're stuffed, dream easy with complimentary noise-cancellation headphones and a full-size pillow.
