Hello guys welcome to my Trip Report!
Today, I am flying the Delta Boeing B777-200LR from LAX to Atlanta.

Starting the day with a healthy breakfast (junk food at 7AM)

TBIT (Tom Bradley International Terminal) is the best terminal in LAX. Not only does it have shops and restaurants, it also has aesthetically pleasing rooftop.

My inbound aircraft is coming from Sydney operating DL40 was delayed due to high winds at Sydney.

Delta One Business class. Swear I am not being jealous, but the seats don't look very comfortable to me.

Back to the pit of economy, where I belong.

Here's Delta's pathetically small IFE screen on a 9 year old aircraft. Glad that the 777 fleet is getting a retrofit soon.

Legroom is pretty decent. One of the best benefits of flying an international widebody on a short 4 hour domestic hoip.

The lavatory was clean and stocked with basic amenities.

Turning final

The landing was pretty "solid" even a bit rough by YouTube standards

Vacated the runway

Parked at the "main" terminal (Concourse T). The pilot announced that this is to help other passengers to make their connection since this we are already 90 minutes delayed.

^^^ Is this really necessary for a 4 hour flight?

Very nice ride on the Boeing B777-200LR. Always great to fly a widebody on a domestic flight. The cabin is great but could use some retrofitting (8/10) The service was very efficient with a smile (9.5/10) There was a great selection of movies and TV shows on Delta studio as well as the streaming portal. However, the IFE screen is quite small and low-def (9/10) Delta provided a good variety of snacks by US standards (9/10)

    While it is definitely one's opinion to rate, I find the 9.0 for catering way too steep and unexplainable. Just a small bag of peanuts, pretzels or some sort of small snack on a four hour flight is simply a very poor standard for an airline what's suppose to be more than a LCC. But thanks for sharing!

      Haha yeah I can see what you mean. However, in the United States, economy flyers have lower expectations on catering. It is quite unfair to judge them based on an "European" or "Asian" scale where people often get complimentary meals.

    Wow, I actually flew this bird in 2015 on PVG-LAX. Nice to see it still in good condition and albeit the horrible PTV we had on our flight.
