Provenance Delta, the NFL and Coca-Cola were tie-in partners for this Delta children's meal and activity kit. Delta worked with vendor Just 4 Fun LLC to create the Fantastic Flyer Fun Feast carrier and activity products.

Dusty the Delta Air Lion was the mascot of the Delta Fantastic Flyer membership program for children, which launched in 1988. Dusty is dressed like a 1920s crop-dusting pilot.

The name "Dusty" and his pilot gear represents Delta's early roots as the world's first crop-dusting company, Huff Daland Dusters, which became Delta Air Service in 1928. Delta continued its crop-dusting operations until 1966.
