- Luvo Sesame Grilled Chicken Wrap (480 calories) – Grilled chicken wrapped with a multi-grain salad (whole grain brown rice and barley with edamame and shiitake mushrooms) in a toasted sesame-ginger dressing with arugula, romaine and green garbanzo hummus in a tomato whole grain tortilla.
- Luvo Mediterranean Whole Grain Veggie Wrap (470 calories) – Vegetable and multi-grain salad (whole grain bulgur with green garbanzo beans, zucchini, slow roasted tomatoes and kale) in a balsamic vinaigrette with arugula, romaine and green garbanzo hummus in a spinach whole grain tortilla.
"We love the passion and quality Luvo brings to its food as it so closely aligns with our own approach to enhance the customer experience and offer more healthful options on board to meet our customer's needs," said Allison Ausband, Delta's Senior Vice President – In-Flight Service. "Our team continuously strives to offer frequent refreshes for our customers, while developing a variety of fresh, flavourful and healthful options made from real ingredients."
Each wrap is made with high-quality ingredients that elevate flavour and taste, including fresh vegetables, nutty whole grains and savoury chicken without antibiotics. The wraps have limited sodium and added sugar and no artificial colours, sweeteners or flavours. Each wrap contains less than 500 calories, is packed with nutritional value and contains satisfying servings of protein.
In December 2015, Delta's domestic food offerings were lauded by The Diet Detective in its annual Airline Food Investigation with Health Ratings as the airline took the top spot among large network carriers and tied for second among all U.S.-based airlines with a score of four out of five stars, highlighting Delta's partnership with Luvo.
