This weekend was an incredible one. I headed out to DTW on Saturday to catch a Rangers (hockey) game and returned on an A220 today.
We flew a 717-200 to DTW, and I’ll be posting an Economy Comfort review for the 717 in the coming days.
For this flight, we were lucky enough to get the first class upgrade.
Route: KDTW (Detroit) - KJFK (John F. Kennedy)
Aircraft: Airbus A220
Tail Number: N111NG
After pre-boarding, First Class passengers and Diamond medallion members are boarded first. The process is simple and orderly, and we were on the aircraft in no time.
Here was our aircraft. (Taken in JFK because of the evil DTW window dots)
I went up to visit the flight deck and speak to the pilots. They were welcoming as always, and I got to talk about some of the more in depth characteristics of the A220.
My seat was seat 3D. It was comfortable, large, and had plenty of legroom! The tray table was sturdy, and the seat-back pocket had plenty of room. Not to mention the great IFE and the large windows!
Here was my seat (taken in JFK).
The legroom was impressive as well! Check this out:
I had plenty of room.
Delta’s IFE absolutely never fails to impress. This had all the standard features with great shows, new and mainstream movies, and excellent display size and accessibility.
The A220 has unique IFE as there are some pretty neat systems that track your flight!
Just excuse the airspeed issues, not sure the units were correct.
It had this HUD and so much more!
The service on this flight was also incredible as always. Delta’s cabin crew has always been exceptionally friendly and hardworking. This time was no different. We were served often and taken great care of!
No meal on this short flight, but we did receive delicious snacks. Here’s what I got and a drink while watching some old episodes of “Friends”. I was offered a glass but chose to keep the can.
First class passengers have their own bathroom, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit the bathroom with the window in it! Sorry it’s vertical.
The view from the bathroom was neat!
Climbing out of DTW!
Approaching JFK after a short flight,
Thanks for checking out my review! I’ll be coming out with another one some time soon, or perhaps a DTW spotting topic.
Have a good one, and enjoy the rest of the Super Bowl! Or perhaps reminisce on that interesting halftime show… or fly in the skies of IF!
