Here we are, landed at 02:15 in MSP, we just have time to exit the plane, change terminal and our plane is already in the final boarding mode. No time for any kind of spotting nor sightseeing.

Very friendly welcome by the purser and we take our seats in the Y+ section, that means that the alcool will run freely :)

I am sorry not having too much pictures, there are two reasons for this: night flight and aisle seat, both together means restrictive pics opportunities.

Soon enough it is time for my usual Bac&Coke, as always when it comes to aperitive service with Delta:

Meal is served, chicken or pasta… What else?

To be fully honest, it was one of the best inflight coach meal I had. The sauce was very good and so was the chicken. The salad was fresh and the dressing good. Cheese and brownie were both ok.

To wash this everything down and to ease the short night, double bailey's plus two other double:

The window blind was closed by my friend, no spottoing opportunities. Hating you!

A good hour before landing, the egg croissant and the banana are served. Pretty standard with DL, but I kinda liked it:

That's all for my 2013 DL Flights. They have a consistent product, very solid and by far, the best on Trans-Atlantic flights amongst American airlines.
