Flying on the Delta A220 SEA PDX Main Cabin (Economy)

Due to some life changes I couldn’t do something very extravagant like a trip to Europe so I settled on a Labor Day weekend run to Portland.

As you would expect from a big established US airline the booking process was simple and easy.

Day of Travel
Thankfully the commute to the airport was easy because the flight was late enough in the day when less cars are on the road. I had been keeping my eye out on this flight and realized it would be delayed. Sure enough it was.

Before Boarding:

I went to the Delta sky club lounge to get some food since everything would be closed by the time I landed in Portland.
Delta skyclub was empty

It was also lacking with the usual dining options at that time of the evening

Boarding began a bit delayed due to the inbound arriving late from Phoenix airport.
Seattle airport didn’t have much traffic at this time so we were on our way into the air

The A220 is laid out in a 2-3 configuration. The seat and width were very comfortable. I had was seated on the left hand side. After riding 737s it was nice to be in that configuration.
Delta also has personal TVs on board they were on for the flight.

Due to the short duration of the flight there was no service and wifi was disabled. The A220 usually comes equipped with WIFI.

Since it was dark outside there wasn’t much to see and before long we were on initial descent into Portland.
We arrived at the gate about 40 mins behind schedule. However since Portland, (PDX) is a small airport we had a very quick taxi to the gate from the runway.

Portland - PDX



The flight was pretty good at least from a comfort perspective.
Above average DL staff (I tend to find DL staff to be less authentic for a lack of a better word than other airlines)
Nice modern cabin really liked it
Above average seat width 20.6' First class /18.6' Main / Comfort Plus 18.6'
personal TVS only a few airlines have them in the US

No wifi due to the short flight
no service in main cabin due to short flight
The 40 min delay no reason was given

Would I fly Delta on this route again?
Depending on the flight schedule and price, yes.
However if Alaska’s Q400 would be in service I find they have the best flights as they used to do a full service. The Q400s will be retired in 2023.
Thank you for reading or watching! I will be posting more trip reports in the future. I will try to release my report next week.

    Thanks for sharing this FR. The DL A220 ticks most of the boxes for comfort (2-3 + IFE). The lack of service is not surprising if they are only at altitude <10minutes. I guess that is the advantage of the Dash8, it is slower so has more time for a drink service. When AS brings in E-Jets on this route, it will likely lose service as well except maybe in premium cabin.
