Delta Air Lines announced Thursday that it will allow customers to treat themselves to a complimentary glass of Prosecco in-flight. The introduction of Avissi Prosecco will now be available to passengers on all international flights. It has not been confirmed as to whether this deal will eventually extend to flights in the United States. 

Customers of age have always had the option of choosing between beer, spirits, white wine and red wine in-flight. Prosecco, however, was only recently served to those seated in the aircraft's first-class section for free. All passengers flying internationally, even those seated in coach, will now be able to reap the benefits of the newly enhanced alcoholic beverage list that will include the popular fizzy drink.  

"Sparkling wine is often the first choice for a celebration and we know how special it is for people to jet off on a trip so we wanted to bring the celebration to them," Lisa Bauer, Delta's Vice President of On-Board Services, said in a press release Thursday. "Offering complimentary chef-curated food and drinks throughout the flight is one of the things that sets Delta apart and we’re upping the ante again with our mini bottles of Prosecco."

Passengers seated in Delta One, the airline's premium cabin for business class customers, will pair fall-inspired flavors with a selection of wines by Delta's Master Sommelier. The airline's sommelier reportedly tasted more than 1,300 wines to create a selective list that pairs well with the customer's in-flight experience. 

A representative for Delta Air Lines did not immediately return International Business Times' request for comment. 

Delta announced in May that it would begin serving complimentary Prosecco to fliers seated in the aircraft's first-class. Customers seated in the main cabin could order a glass of Avissi or La Marca Prosecco, but they would have to fork out $9 to do so. The deal, which began June 1, was a part of the airline's "industry-leading culinary strategy." 

"The airline is committed to offering an ever-changing variety of fresh, local and seasonal food and beverage options to enhance the on-board customer experience," the airline wrote in a May press release

This deal may not be directly available to Delta customers flying in the U.S., but it will be accessible through flights heading to Europe from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York, for example. 

Delta's complimentary Prosecco deal comes on the heels of the airline's free in-flight text messaging offer. Passengers will be able to use iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger to send texts in-flight.

"We know many of Delta's customers want or need to stay connected in the air and on the ground, which is why we're investing in an easy, free way to send and receive messages inflight through some of the most popular global platforms," Tim Mapes, Delta's Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, said in a September press release . "Coupled with our investments in seat-back screens, free entertainment and High-Speed Wi-Fi, free messaging is one more way customers can choose how to make the most of their time on Delta flights."

Delta is the first U.S. airline to offer passengers in-flight texting capabilities. Free mobile messaging was made available on all Gogo-enabled Delta flights October 1, including aircraft's that have two or more cabins. The service, however, will not allow passengers to send text or video messages at this time.
