While sipping on malbec in a real wine glass and noshing on a spicy cauliflower and olive tapenade sandwich at the Delta Marine Terminal at LaGuardia in New York, I thought -- this has to be one of the best-kept secrets in air travel.

This isn’t the only great experience in air travel. Here are a few of our favorites:
