This is a short series on a trip to DC I took back in 2017.
I didn't report the BOG-MIA segments as they were pretty much the same as this
Without further ado…let get it on.
I arrived around 5 am to MIA on a redeye from BOG, getting through the CBP was painless and since I only had a carry-on there wasn't much troubble getting to my gate to DCA which was in the way older E gates.
I waited for my chance to board while chatting with my friends…in no time I was boarding the gorgeous silverjet.
The cabin was your regular AA cabin back then. I felt the space to be a bit more spacious than on the A319.
Seatback had American Way magazine and the BOB menu, which I didn't really care for.
We took of towards the East and flew near Downtown and Wynwood, providing interesting views. This made up for being sit on the right side of the plane, which meant I would miss the cool views when landing in DCA.
There seemed to be some GCC meetup in Miami those days
The takeoff was the highlight of the flight. At some point the FAs passed by and handed drinks.I tried to watch some tv on my tablet making use of the inflight wifi IFE. But I mostly slept. I had a busy day of work ahead.
DCA boasts one of the best approaches in the world, over the Potomac River, which grants gorgeous views of DC. But you have to be seated on the left hand of the plane to get the gorgeous views. The right-hand side highlight is you are basically on top of Rosslyn's CBD, and nice views of the Pentagon.
Boarding took some while, but once I was out I was waiting for the Blue Train to Downtown in no time.
All in all, this was your regular pre-pandemic AA domestic flight.
Crew was unremarkable. I had a nice apple juice and cookies while I had a real breakfast in DC. The seat was good enough and the IFE did its job.
