Orlando foodies can feast on subs at 1,000 feet in the air on Subway's new blimp

It's a bird… It's a plane… It's the Subway blimp!

The fast casual sub chain is taking to the sky in a new dining experience set to give customers a shot at enjoying a Deli Hero sub at 1,000 feet above the ground in a 180-foot-long blimp, Subway said in a press release. Subway in the Sky will fly over Orlando later this month – and a lucky group of sandwich lovers will get the chance to join the mission. 

Subway's new Deli Hero subs, first launched in July, feature a half-pound of freshly sliced meat. Whoever gets a chance to be on board Subway in the Sky will be able to enjoy them in the floating restaurant. 

"The Subway in the Sky reinforces a summer of exciting changes at all U.S. restaurants following the debut of freshly sliced meats and Deli Hero subs, a major expansion and new category in its Subway Series menu," Subway said in a press release. "Alongside 10 straight quarters of positive sales and international growth, the sky is no longer the limit for Subway."
