Introduction


Welcome to another trip report!
After a very long and anticipated wait (literally years in the making) I'll finally be flying to one of my favorite countries in the world! I was originally suppose to take this trip to Japan back in the summer of 2020 but due to obvious circumstances I had to reschedule the trip literally 4 times. Until I finally locked on a great award redemption flying from LAX to HND via SEA on Delta using SkyMiles so I booked this trip last year hoped that I wouldn't have to cancel it like I have the previous three times. Last time I was in Japan was back in Nov. of 2018 and I had an absolute blast enjoying the food, culture and beautiful scenery that I couldn't wait to enjoy again!
Let's get straight into the trip report shall we 😉.
Welcome from LAX terminal 3. I was so excited to take this trip that I arrived very very early (about 3am which was quite ridiculous but I couldn't help myself 😅).

check-in


Of course at this time in the morning there was practically no one at the check in area. 


photo tempimagepo7elt

Although there weren't any agents in sight I still proceeded to use the self check-in kiosk to print my boarding passes and tag my checked bag.


photo tempimagecx7xkfphoto tempimaged0kd1g

Thanks to my medallion status I was upgraded to Comfort+ from Main Cabin the day before which was a nice surprise. So far the Y+ cabin looked quite empty so fingers crossed I'll have the empty middle seat on this flight.


photo tempimagehxvrgj-74073

Got my boarding pass and bags tagged and now just waited until the agents opened up the desks.

After waiting for some time. The agents finally arrived and the process was simple and only took a few minutes to drop off my bags. Now off to security control.

Security control went smoothly and I was airside in just 10 minutes.

Looks like my flight will be departing out of the nicer 'B' gates.

gate area


After a relatively long walk I finally made it to my gate. As expected no one is here other then me 😅.


photo tempimagesmlxtg

This part of the terminal looked very nice however these gates offer zero views of planes which was disappointing. I really wanted to see my A321neo but I guess I'll have to wait until I arrive in Seattle to get a better exterior view of her.

Upon entering the aircraft we received a warm welcome by the FA and proceeded to my seat. My seat for the next 2.5h, 15A (comfort+). Chose this seat specifically for it's perfect window alignment (thanks to aerolopa).


photo tempimagejb20rl

Always nice to see a PTV.


photo tempimagem5ap11

Legroom is fantastic! These seats offer 34" of pitch, I'm 5'9" or 176cm for reference.


photo tempimagedqhup0

Absolutely loving my view from here!

Next to us is a DL A321ceo scheduled to depart 5 minutes before of us across the country to ATL.

Shortly after the FA's came by through the cabin offering complimentary headphones.

Luckily I scored an empty middle seat on this flight whereas I stored my book bag under that seat to have more space. I hope this doesn't come off as selfish but my rule of thumb is that whoever gets to the row first gets first dibs.

Have a safe flight to ATL!

We pushed back right on time. Today's flight load up to Seattle this morning looked to be around 85%. Interestingly the comfort+ section made up of mostly comuters, FA's and pilots assuming flying to their base for work.

inflight service


The inflight service began 30 minutes into flight with the handout of premium snacks from a basket in the Comfort+ section.

I went for a potato chips and pistachios.

Quickly followed by the main drink service.


photo tempimageccqeri-35276

I asked the FA for a red wine and orange juice. Got to somehow take advantage of the free alcohol ;). 


photo tempimagey5as0t

I'm no wine expert but I find DL's wines to be very dry. I'm more of a sweet wine type of guy.

Making a makeshift mimosa/sangria whatever you want to call it 😅.

Regardless it was sweet and delicious!

second drink service


To my delight the FA's came through the cabin once more about an hour before arrival offering coffee & orange juice from a tray. I gladly went for a coffee.

inflight Entertainment


I personally believe Delta has the best IFE system in North America (with JetBlue following right behind) with countless movies, shows and live TV to choose from.

My absolute favorite part though was the fantastic interactive map which I kept on throughout the flight.

arrival at the gate


We arrived at the gate 5 minutes ahead of schedule. Now time to run from where I currently am in 'A' gates to 'S' gates for my Tokyo flight as I have a tight one hour connection here.

Conclusion

Overall this was a great and comfortable domestic flight on Delta. The crew onboard were friendly, attentive and professional throughout the flight. Seat comfort (both padding on seats and PTV's) was fantastic for economy class standards. The last minute upgrade was a nice surprise as it gave me more legroom and recline which made the flight that much more enjoyable. Not to mention the added bonus of complimentary premium snacks and alcohol you get when flying comfort+ on domestic flights. And lastly, I very much appreciated the two drink services on a short flight as this one which you don't ever see on other airlines such as AA or UA.
