Three trip reports in one?!?

I’ve found myself flying slightly more often recently, and I hadn’t made a trip report about any of the flights I’d taken recently, so I figured instead of 3 individual trip reports, why not make one big one?

The first flight was from Charlotte-Raleigh/Durham. I flew up there in First Class, seat 1A, for the low low price of 15,000 AAdvantage miles to watch the home team Carolina Hurricanes take on the visiting New Jersey Devils in Game 5 of Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. We had a chance to send the Devils packing to the golf course with a win in Game 5, and we did just that. It took going to overtime, but we got the W.

This was the A321 that whisked me up to RDU, a nearly (if not fully) sold out flight. N154UW, 10 years old from Gate B8.

Flight 2 was from Charlotte to Atlanta, for Ed Sheeran’s Atlanta stop as part of the North America leg of his “Mathematics Tour”, an appropriately named tour indeed, seeing as his last 5 studio albums have all been mathematical processes. I took the first flight of the day, on a CRJ-900 registered N588NN arriving from Greensboro, NC, in Seat 1A (again, 15,000 miles.)

Prior to heading to the concert venue, none other than the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons and Major League Soccer’s Atlanta United FC, I did some obligatory spotting in the various terminals of Hartsfield-Jackson.

And lastly, the last flight I took was once again, CLT-RDU. This time on a 737-800 in Seat 1F. This flight was also very near full. Got up to 13,000 feet for the short hop. Got some beautiful engine buzzsaw noise after rotation, but outside of that the flight was uneventful.
