So here we are at SLC, between two rush hours, it is an half empty airport and very quiet that we have. We arrived at gate C08 and will depart from C06.

Free WIFI and very fast:

Next to it, an A319 ready to go, apart from this Airbus, not a lot to see:

A look at the upgrade list, and as usual on that leg, my friend and I are upgraded to First. It's only an hour of flight time, but it is free, and I will never decline anything for free ^^

Boarding begins right on time, we will board first, that will allow me to take some picture of this ageing First Class cabin, but still comfortable, nevertheless:

Recline is not great, but at least, the seats do recline ^^

Baileys on the rocks as welcome drink please:

Leg room is very good, in the meantime, it is First ;)

Push back and take off along the Airfoce base, I'll be able to stop those US Air Force re-engined with CFM56, B707. I love this plane!!

Salt Lake City:

Quite cloudy outside:

Soon enough the service starts, without trolleys, as usual in First with DL, with a full cabin. The purser begins with the snack basket:

My very light selection:

As offering the snack selection, the purser asks what kind of drink is requested and gives the order to the hostess that stayed in the galley.

I'll have my usual Bacardi Coke:

A second offer of snack is being made together with coffee/tea.

No invidual screens, but overhead TV's:

    Thanks for this report! You're right about the cabin showing its age! Thankfully thr 757 cabins are getting overhauled and from the pics I've seen of the renovated 757-300 interiors, it looks really nice! Can't wait to try one!

    Thanks Kévin - I might try one in January 2015, I'll fly HNL - SEA, hope that this 753 will get the mods at that time ^^
