After two wonderful weeks wandering through Alaska and Nevada, it's already time to go back home for Christmas.
I drop of my rental car and head to the terminal:
My flight is scheduled on time, good to know as I only have only an hour in Atlanta:
Delta's check in zone:
I checked in with a very friendly agent who hands me over both my boarding passes for ATL and CDG. She tries to print out the last leg but can't. Then she realizes I have a train booking from CDG to BRU and apologizes she can't print it. She tells me I need to pick up my bags in CDG and go to the train station to obtain my train boarding pass. I know the process as I did choose it on purpose: my tickets are booked ex and to BRU as they are cheaper than from BSL. I will skip the last leg and take a flight to BSL instead.
Nice Christmas stuff:
Going upstairs to the D Gates:
I breezed through TSA, all agents were very nice and smiling. Christmas spirit may have helped. Then I board the train to the D concourse:
I loved this Star wars Christmas tree:
Gates are one floor up:
A bit of spotting with this 737-800 and this 767-300 to ATL a bit later in the morning:
717 to SLC:
The sun begins to rise:
Boarding is called on time, priorities are strictly enforced, as usual with DL. Very nice welcome from the F/As. Here the cabin of this 757-300:
A few comments;
- The screens are pretty big and have a very good definition - USB plugs are below to screens and power plugs between the seats - Row 1AB has to be avoided, the pitch is awful as the bulkhead very near is - Row 1CD is a bit better but still, there's more legroom in "regular" rows - Recline is pretty good and the seat is comfortable enough
A welcome drink was offered. Coffee-baileys for me:
We took off on time, unfortunately no outside views, I had an aisle seat.
Nous partirons à l'heure, pas de photos extérieures, je n'étais pas à la fenêtre.
Once we reached the cruising altitude, the service began with a hot towel:
Today's meal choice are either cinnamon - passion fruit oatmeal or an omelet with provolone cheese together with chicken apple sausages. I took the latter:
It was a really good meal. The omelet was tasty and not overcooked, one of the best I had in a plane. The bagel came with Philadelphia cheese or butter/jam. The fruits were not top, however.
Service was very attentive and proactive. The lead FA made sure glasses were never empty and all requests fulfilled.
I managed to sleep a bit throughout the flight. We landed 20 minutes early in ATL.
A last picture of the cabin:
To conclude, some pictures from my room at the Cosmo in Vegas:
Delta Air Lines
Las Vegas - LAS
Atlanta - ATL
I really like the cabin of the 753, the retrofit has been well done, making the cabin really comfortable.
The crew was nice and the hot dish really good.
