Domestic #DeltaOne on a Boeing 767-400

With only a few days remaining on my Global Upgrade Certificates (from my 2017 Choice Benefits), I’ve been using them rather liberally for my recent flights to and from LAX. Since I was automatically confirmed in Comfort+, I wasn’t too disappointed when they weren’t clearing. However, on the last day of their availability, I was … Continue reading “Domestic #DeltaOne on a Boeing 767-400”

Recent LAX Visit and @Delta First Class Meal – Antipasto Salad

While in LA for work recently, I caught a glimpse of a KLM Queen flying overhead as I returned my rental car. It’s been quite some time since I’ve seen one of those! I was pleasantly surprised with an upgrade on the way back to Raleigh. Initially rather worried with the weather hitting the South-East, … Continue reading “Recent LAX Visit and @Delta First Class Meal – Antipasto Salad”

@Delta First Class Meal – Tandoori Chicken with Quinoa Salad

Delta has really been stepping up their catering game of late, and my recent flight from San Diego to Detroit is proof that they are taking it seriously. Since I was on an odd numbered flight (DL 833), meal orders were taken from the back to the front, so I didn’t have a choice in … Continue reading “@Delta First Class Meal – Tandoori Chicken with Quinoa Salad”

Delta Schedule Change Fallout

Schedule changes are really no surprise in the travel game, but they are decidedly not fun. A few days ago I received an automated call from Delta to let me know that there was a schedule change that would make one of my connections in an upcoming trip illegal. Taking a deep breath, I logged … Continue reading “Delta Schedule Change Fallout”

@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300

Recently I had the opportunity to fly on what I like to refer to (affectionately, of course) as a narrow wide-body. Delta has a handful of Boeing 767-300 (not ER or LR, mind you) that have their first class in a 2x2x2 configuration. These seats are standard recline only, not angled or lie-flat as other … Continue reading “@Delta’s Narrow Wide-Body, the Domestic 767-300”

Aeromexico 787-800; excitement! #Dreamliner @Boeing

I’m really looking forward to being able to take a ride on Aeromexico’s 787 service from New York-JFK to Mexico City, on my way to Cabo San Lucas. Thanks to stockpiled Citi ThankYou and Chase Ultimate Rewards points, I was able to book two business class tickets for half the price I would spend, otherwise. … Continue reading “Aeromexico 787-800; excitement! #Dreamliner @Boeing”

New @Delta Serviceware by Alessi // @Matteo_Alessi

This week I had the opportunity to give the new Alessi serviceware a whirl, and I am very much a fan. The napkin ring went from being a paper hoop to a nice hexagonal metal ring, and the mugs and glasses are markedly nicer than before. Another nice touch was that the old salt and … Continue reading “New @Delta Serviceware by Alessi // @Matteo_Alessi”
