Welcome back to another short travel series. This report though short, shows my connection to ORD via LGA. I've been fond of the C-Series for some time and this was a great opportunity to fly on it for the first time. Enjoy the great views on this short trip.

Leg room was more that adequate.

Another feature that DL provides is the aircraft specifications. Not often you'll find this on an IFE.

After pushback and start up, it was beyond evident of the quietness of this aircraft. Noise in the cabin was at a minimum.

Another notable feature of the A220 is the window in the bathroom. The only other airline I've experienced this one was on Qatar's 787.

Our flight was quite empty so I freely moved around the cabin to grab some great pics. 



Though clear from above, skies below these ceilings definitely over grey and overcast. Here we were flying over Lake Erie.
