If there’s one universal truth about commercial airlines, it’s that the food sucks. Dry chicken, crusty rice, and a sad, rubbery piece of broccoli isn’t exactly the most appetizing thing to eat at 35,000 feet.  

Chrissy Teigen, model and connoisseur of delicious food, knows damn well how bad it can be, even in first class. After a recent Delta flight, she called out the airline for an “atrocious” meal of avocado toast topped with shrimp, tomatoes, and capers.

She explained her reasoning for this dish being such a monstrosity:

And then she had a brilliant idea: Curate her own airline menu and make food that doesn’t suck and is actually enjoyable to eat.

Obviously, Delta loved the idea, and tweeted back:

And lo, the Delta x Chrissy Teigen airplane food collaboration was born. Maybe.

I’m looking forward to those gooey biscoff brownies, so hopefully this actually happens.
