Hey fam!! I am proud to announce that Delta has finally shown some love to the 737. The 737 is getting so much love (fun routes), one of them being ATL-IAH. So, over the summer, I’ll be flying on some of these fun routes!! Anyway, my flights went extremely well even though I haven’t flown in quite some time. I had a few hiccups as expected, but for the most part I had a good flight. We flew over a big thunderstorm during both legs which caused the flights to be slightly turbulent. As for the landings, both landings were extremely smooth. The 739 is a little bit challenging to land in contrast to the 738 especially in high winds. Anyway, I had a good day and I’ll have more cool routes to come!! Until then, safe flying 😊
