Gate A13. Before that, I had to run to the washroom. A long walk (or run?) was ahead. This turned out to be a bad choice because I missed the tram to get to concourse A/B by about a few seconds. Gaaaahhhhh!!!! Just missed it!
A long three minute wait felt like thirty three minutes. It was 1101 hours, nineteen minutes to departure. I did not bother seeing how long prior to departure time does Delta close barding gates. If they got delayed out Chicago (thanks, nature :P ) it had to be on them to put me on the following flight….
Onboard…lets get going already!
I got to the gate after a lot of huffing and puffing. 1113 hours, just seven minutes to departure! ‘You made great time!’ said the nice lady at Gate A13. Another young lady, presumably a UND student too, boarded this flight from Chicago. The jet bridge door opened for us, it was cold in there too! I was soon about to board a CRJ200…registration unknown! But more importantly, I MADE IT!
Not a nice welcome at the door. ‘What is your seat number?’ asked Donna, the only flight attendant. ‘7D’, I said, and yet she insisted on checking my boarding pass. Okay, cool then. Took my seat and relaxed. I made my last flight! This was a very hectic trip for me indeed.
The Captain gave us a few details of the flight. It would be a very cold 10F at Grand Forks, we’d cruise at 26000 feet for our quick 54 minute hop to Grand Forks. Pushed back at 1123 hours, three minutes late. Both engines fired up, followed by a short taxi behind a lovely Air Canada CRJ-200, and blasted off into the skies like a rocket!
Banked and set course towards North-North West. Service began. Interestingly, unlike all domestic flights with Delta (including SkyWest and Compass Airlines), this Endeavor Air flight was a change only flight, meaning that no cards accepted, the exact opposite of all my DL flights so far! I found the seats on Endeavor to be much more comfortable than those on SkyWest.
It was another flight flying over a lot of snow, a snowy Minnesota. Service began, the flight attendant went about her job. I requested cookies and peanuts (finally!), ginger ale and water. She said she could only give me one of the drinks, and the other once the entire plane was served. In a stone cold manner. Wow, that was nice of her! Once she was done, she gave me the glass, with what looked like a fussy and irritated attitude. Anyway.
A quick restroom visit, finally on the CRJ!
Descent started at 1204, we slowly came closer to land…
My trip was coming to a quick end!
Touchdown into a very snowy Grand Forks, announcements were made about arrival. A Detroit MI based crew served us today. Pretty nice! Docked at Gate A1. I waited to get off because I had no flights after this, up until May at least! The Captain said goodbye to everyone from his seat, while the flight attendant, Donna thanked most people, except me. Kinda got the feeling that I was being racially profiled? Oh well.
I found out that N800AY flew me into Grand Forks. Baggage came out pretty quickly, I met my friends and I was on my way back into a snow cold Grand Forks, ready to tuck in to the bed of a warm dorm room, and to start my second semester at UND!
Minneapolis - MSP
Grand Forks - GFK
A pretty non existent flight with Endeavor Air for Delta Connection, if that makes sense. I made the flight, I was relieved to be onboard. The less said about the crew member, the better. I quite liked the comfy seats on the CRJ.
