A Sunset on Utah’s Great Salt Lake

Atlanta to Salt Lake City

So you may remember a little over a month ago the Friday Night Flight was in Atlanta. I flew this route on that day but never had the chance to make this post until now and because @reer104 brought it up yesterday. Both of these airports are hubs for Delta so they use many aircraft on that route including 737s, A321s, 757s, 767s and A330s among a couple others. I decided to use the A321 for no real Reason other than I wanted to. I left Atlanta just after 6 PM Eastern if I remember correctly, but it was more than a month ago so I don’t really remember. I do know that I timed my arrival so that the sun would be setting in Salt Lake City when I arrived, and it was amazing. Flight time was 3 hours and 33 minutes.

@snoman thanks so much! The Delta livery is so clean on the 321

@TheFlyingGuy1 @Aero thanks a lot guys!

@Rian16 thanks Rian! The scenery in the Rocky Mountains is great

@Luke_Sta he’s floating so I don’t think we should make any assumptions about aircraft type. And Denver is ok, the Rockies are what matter 😝
