The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to find out which of your neighbors secretly have pools. Put your eyes in the skies with this Groupon.
$119 for Dinner and a Scenic Flight for Two ($225 Value)
Dinner flights may be scheduled Wednesday–Sunday from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Before takeoff, couples share a prix fixe menu of salad and a choice of rib eye, tilapia, chicken, or pasta at Delta Charlie's on the grounds of Dallas Executive Airport. For dessert, the chefs whip up a choice of whipped-cream-topped brownie sundaes, cheesecake with chocolate or caramel sauce, or upside-down pineapple cake. After dinner, a pilot from Aviator Air Centers whisks the couple away on a sunset tour of the Dallas skyline. As the silhouettes of skyscrapers fade into purple dusk, the pair enjoys the four seater's private cabin with only their pilot and the plane's self-aware navigational computer for company.
Whether travelers are freshly arriving in town, meeting a loved one at the airport, or simply gathering evidence for the theory that the landing at Kitty Hawk was faked, Delta Charlie's aims to serve up culinary comfort. Lunch and dinner options such as tortilla soup and the fried texas catfish contribute local flavor, and specialty cocktails made from Bacardi Superior rum, Grey Goose vodka, and Collingwood Canadian whiskey keep spirits high over long layovers. The restaurant's dinner-and-flight packages elevate the traditional date night with an aerial tour of the Dallas skyline.
