Curious as to what to expect in DL First Class aboard the A319 that seems to now be flying between JFK and DCA? I remember in the past this route has been the domain of primarily CR7/CR9/CRJ and the odd M88.

I know that although the flight is blocked at 1h36m, the actual flight time is more like 40-50 mins - I may be flying this route later in the month in F and wanted to see if anybody could shed any light on the cabin/service/etc. for a leg that short on a mainline aircraft.

Thanks!

You will likely be served drinks and a snack. You will also be offered a drink before takeoff while everyone else is boarding.

The seats are typical domestic F seats, nothing too special, but they are comfortable.

DTW-PIT is roughly the same length, maybe even a bit shorter, so perhaps I can pitch in.

If you ask me, the F seats on the A319 (and perhaps even the A320, since they share the same seats) are plush enough, and they will be more than adequate for a flight of that length. You should also get a snack from a basket, as well as some drinks.

At least it's better than in Y: passengers on a flight of that length get nothing at all.

Maybe a drink and a packet of chips/cookie, better than economy where the flight attendent walks thru and slaps them.

A holdover from PanAm?

F on this flight is the same as any other DL mainline flight. Pre-departure drinks on the ground, and once in the air, you'll get your usual beverages and your choice of snack from the basket.

Due to the short duration of the flight, there is no service in Y.

DCA-LGA is a Delta Shuttle route. It caters to business travelers flying between the cities and has an entirely different service than other flights of similar length.
