Delta wants Chrissy Teigen to make their inflight menu and Twitter is all for it

TORONTO — Chrissy Teigen: Supermodel, Author and… Airline Chef?

The popular model, known for her social media savvy and bestselling cookbooks, could very well be responsible for your next in-flight meal and it’s all thanks to Twitter.

While on a recent Delta flight, Teigen, who has 10.6 million Twitter followers, tweeted a picture of the inflight menu, complete with avocado toast, shrimp, tomato and capers. Teigen, author of the wildly popular ‘Cravings’ and ‘Cravings: Cooking For More’ cookbooks, wrote: “I will never ever take flying first class for granted but this is atrocious.”

She added: “plane shrimp are bad. Plane shrimp on avocado toast with capers??? dear god this seems like a good time to share my dream of curating an airline menu.”

Twitterverse was ALL for the idea, with CNN reporter Omar Jiminez writing: “For what it’s worth I wholeheartedly support this dream.”

Teigen’s most loyal fans also tweeted their support and tagged Delta on their posts. The airline didn’t clue in at first that the whole exhange was all in fun, thinking it was a legitimate customer service issue.

In response to Twitter user @allgoldeverything, who encouraged Delta to take up Chrissy’s offer, whoever’s in charge of the carrier’s Twitter handler replied: “I will be more than happy to assist you please provide your confirmation number, last name, flight number, and date of travel via a DM and I will be happy to review your reservation.”

@allgoldeverything cheekily responsed with: “My problem is that Chrissy Teigen hasn’t been asked by Delta to curate the in-flight menus. Or the menu in Sky Club. Please help.”

Delta hilariously responded with, “Thank you for providing your feedback and I will share your concerns with the inflight catering team.”

We’d love to know how that conversation went!

Finally, someone alerted Delta about Teigen’s original tweet. They retweeted her original post nine hours later, writing: “We’d love to show you around the kitchen. Let’s chat.”

Yes, let’s! Come on, Twitter, let’s help to make this happen!
