Welcome to my trip report about my flight with Delta to Atlanta. This is a one day trip from New York to Atlanta, and I would be heading back the following day.

Today's trusty steed: N808DN. I'll admit, I was a little disappointed that I did not get split scimitars.

Some airport spotting.


N808DN, with some rather interesting boxes being unloaded from the flight, as well as the Pilot doing the walkaround.

Boarding.
I had asked to board first to take empty photos of the cabin, and even to me surprise, the gate agent allowed me to! I was truly excited to be one of the first to board. This, along with other examples throughout my trip, shows how Delta goes above and beyond, and truly catered to my inner Avgeek.

Cockpit visit and chat with the pilots! Today's cruising altitude would be FL360, flying at mach .8, and taking off on runway 31L and landing on 8L.


Extra fancy SkyInterior. The LEDs really made the cabin feel special.

Very dirty window, even though the aircraft is just 4 years old.

Conclusion

I was really blown away by the service. I was allowed to board early, and talked to the flight attendants for a bit before more passengers boarded. They seemed very nice, and even just after out short conversation, they remembered and addressed me by name throughout the flight. The seats were decent enough for a 1-2 hour flight, and the entertaintment system was more than enough. I think the selection of movies would even suffice for an ultra-longhaul flight between USA and Asian destinations. As for what could've been better, my only complaints were the dirty window and the flimsy armrest on my seat which was broken, especially for such a new aircraft.
