We just arrived from DCA on a quick, pleasant Delta flight (see previous report). Our next stop was the MSP SkyClub to grab a bite before heading to SFO.
The Club was a bit crowded but as evening flights started to depart, it quickly got empty.
Remaining evening departures
The food selection was not bad. The ribs were particularly good and so were the chicken wraps.
We also grabbed some cookies, just in case :)
Headed to Gate D2, about 5 minutes away from the SkyClub, where our flight was about to begin boarding.
Boarding was done very organized and by groups.
This time I did not miss the emblematic “Esteban” moment .
Our seats were in the mini C+ cabin, right behind first class. But surprise, trash from the previous flight was not collected. We immediately signaled this to a crew member, who was apologetic and collected the trash. We still sanitized the seat with some alcohol pad, just in case :)
The seat pitch was extremely generous, the C+ mini cabin on the 757s is by far, my favorite. We were also lucky enough to have the seat next to us empty, something rare on a Thursday evening flight.

Departure on time, followed by the security video.
Rainy departure from MSP.
Immediately after departure, drinks and snacks were served. I went for Prosecco, pretzel, and biscoff cookies this time.
The rest of the flight was uneventful. A second round of snacks and drinks was served about 1.5 hours before landing, although drinks were available throughout the flight.
Approaching the Bay Area with a nice view of San Francisco, including the Bay Bridge, Treasure Island, and even Market Street.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take pictures of the landing. Arrival was on time at Gate C11.
We then proceeded to walk for about 15 minutes until we reached the exit and the baggage claim area.
Welcome to San Francisco! Thank you for reading.
Overall, a good domestic DL flight with the usual services and seat comfort. The only downside was the lack of cleaning before the flight. On-time departure and arrival really made the difference, as there were many crew issues around those days, and other friends traveling on a different carrier got delayed due to crew issues.
