Starbucks fans can once again enjoy the coffee at 35,000 feet.
Delta began serving Starbucks on all of its flights worldwide on Sunday.
Passengers are offered Starbucks’ Pike Place Roast, or VIA Ready Brew Italian Roast decaf if they prefer.
Delta is the only major airline serving Starbucks coffee on flights, although other airlines have served the brand in the past. United began a stint serving Starbucks in 1995.
“The move continues Delta’s effort to partner with high-quality, like-minded brands in an effort to enhance the overall traveling experience for customers,” the airline said in a statement.
Starbucks will be on more than 5,000 Delta and Delta Connection flights each day.
Delta announced it will serve Starbucks coffee in-flight worldwide.

As for other major airlines, American Airlines serves Java City coffee, United serves Hawaiian Kona blend and Southwest serves LIFT coffee, according to Coffee Crossroads. Read more…
