Hello folks, this is our return trip heading back to St. Louis as we checked out the hotel and headed to the airport to catch our Delta 1873 flight from ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฝ St. Maarten to Atlanta ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ for part 1 of this trip. As we were about to line up for takeoff, someone spotted us at Maho Beach ๐Ÿ๏ธ sent me that photo onto my phone that I will post. Anyways, letโ€™s get right onto the shots.

Welcome aboard Delta Flight 1873 at Gate 9 at SXM airport as we were ready to board this flight back to Atlanta. My Aunty bought us some souvenirs at the gift shop inside the airport and also I got some snacks to eat on the plane before we arrived at the gate

Here we are taxiing to RWY 10 for departure out of SXM

As mentioned earlier that someone spotted us getting on the runway as we were about to takeoff

And off we go we are headed back to the 404 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Atlanta. Peace Out โœŒ๏ธ SXM, we will see you next time. What a wonderful time we head at St Maarten

Climbing to our cruising altitude as we were above FL120, flying past Anguilla ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฎ with the view of St Maarten that we took off from

Cruising at FL360 over the North Atlantic Ocean ๐ŸŒŠ enroute back to Atlanta ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ as the flight attendants served us either Sun Chips or Cheez-Its and I chose Sun Chips with a cup of Sprite and my Aunty got Cheez-Its and gave it to me since she didnโ€™t want it. After that, I watched a movie called Barbie on the IFE screen and then I fell asleep ๐Ÿ˜ด until I heard โ€œFlight Attendants, prepare for landingโ€ ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โœˆ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธ ๐Ÿ›ฌ

Banking to our right as we entered left base onto RWY 27L in preparation for approach to ATL airport

And we were on short final RWY 27L before we landed in Atlanta

And weโ€™ve just landed in Atlanta, and crossing RWY 27R before we taxied to our arrival gate. Welcome to the 404 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ once again

And we arrived at Gate E15 at ATL airport and here is the photo of our plane as we exited the aircraft. Now, we had to proceed to Passport control ๐Ÿ›‚ before we went through the Security Checkpoint to head to Gate E16 for our final flight to St. Louis ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

And that completes our connection flight to Atlanta. Stay tuned for Part 2 and have a good first day of August. Happy August
