This trip is our nonstop flight out to San Jose del Cabo (SJD) from Seattle for spring break. I had been to SJD before, but it had been many years. Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:40am, meaning we got to the airport at around 4:40. We got a ride to the airport, and got out at Delta's check-in area. They had a check-in stand outside, so we checked in there. We went inside, the airport wasn't too busy as it was 5am on a Saturday. We quickly got through security and rode the tram out to the South Satellite. Upon arriving to our gate (which I believe was S7), we realized we had two hours to spare.
Our aircraft, N380DA, a 1999 737-832. I will be sitting in seat 22F in economy.
Our neighbor, a Delta Connection/SkyWest E175, N244SY.
Renovations at the North Satellite.
The employee powered Alaska/Horizon Q400. After a long taxi down to 16L, we took off no later than 8am.

This 737 had the newer IFE screens. I put it on the flight tracker and left it there for pretty much the entire flight. The screen was clean, responsive, sleek and it worked just fine. I didn't use it to watch anything, because I brought my kindle with Netflix. Pretty soon after we got to cruising altitude, I got my obligatory Delta-branded Biscoff cookies.
Descending over the Gulf of California, and an interesting group of clouds. We arrived on time, but sadly parked at one of four gates that use jetways. I was looking forward to using stairs, but this was much faster. We walked down to customs, which was a very large, clean facility. There was almost no line. However, on the way to customs, it did feel very crowded. After clearing customs, we were on our way out of the airport. One interesting feature of SJD airport is that before you leave the airport, you get in a line. At the end of the line is a security officer and a stand with a button on it. You push the button, and if it flashes a green light, you are free to go. If the light is red, they go through your bags. As far as I'm aware, whether the light is green or red is random. We got lucky with the green light, and went outside to wait for our hotel shuttle.

Overall, this was a very pleasant flight, the crew were very friendly and happy to help. This was somehow my first time flying Delta, and I was very happy with the flight. The south satellite at SeaTac was rather small and bland, with not a lot of things to do. It was, however, clean and comfortable. San Jose del Cabo airport was very clean, but it definitely had some more crowded spots.
