Most people know about a few airline perks. For instance, most of us are aware that speaking politely to the flight attendant can get you plenty of airline freebies, from a whole can of soda to a warm coffee mug to a cocktail, on the house. But what you may not know is that plenty of carriers offer amazing airline perks — ones that, often, only frequent flyers know about.
Below, check out the best airline perks that you probably haven’t heard of yet.
1. Delta will give you a free breakfast
Let’s start with one of our favorite airline perks for travelers who just don’t have time to grab breakfast before an early flight. When you take a Delta shuttle in the Northeast, then get on a commuter flight that leaves before 11 a.m., the airline will give you a complimentary bagel to start your day off on the right foot.
They even serve the bagels hot — unlike the lukewarm ones you often encounter at airport coffee shops. Before you even get on the flight, you’ll also get to enjoy complimentary Starbucks coffee at your gate.
