DL 1890 CMH-CVG
Got to the airport about 6:00a for my 7:00a departure. Checked in and said my goodbye's to my girlfriend and my mom. got through security, there was practially no one in line so it went by really fast! got to gate C56 and boarded! The flight was the shortest flight I have ever experienced... a whopping 29mins inflight. Landed and arrived somwhere on concourse B(dont remember which gate exactly).
Boarded and made my way to the very back of the aircraft. Took my seat! A few minuites have passed and they are now starting the emergency checklist... where they teach me about the new technology called a seatbelt. As if i have never used one of those. We taxi to the runway and we are about #3 for departure! We depart through the thick black clouds and make our way out to FL310! It was an enjoyable flight... I talked to the couple next to me and their final destination was HNL(Lucky Them)! It was about a 3:40min flight and we were on the ground in SLC I spotted a couple of 763's and 764's for DL and the SkyWest service is like a mad house out of SLC! The FA welcomes us to SLC in which she has been there as long as we have and she is welcoming us?!?! Deplane the 752 and made my way to Sabbro! Got a big chease pizza(it was excelent) and a Mountain Dew! Finished my pizza and made my way to Concourse E!
Boarded the lil CRJ it was a tight squeeze but it wasnt unbareable like some people make it out to be. Made my way once again to the rear to the CRJ and planted my butt in seat 11A! I noticed that it is quite a neck acher to look out of the window of those things. On our decent into GEG we found a couple of good bumps but they ended when we began the final approach!
HADE A BLAST IN NORTH IDAHO! U WOULDNT BELEAVE THE THINGS TO DO IN IDAHO! IDAHO OF ALL PLACES! I WAS SUPPRISED!
Arrived at the airport about an hour before my 6:30a departure. Checked in, checked my bag and got into a long line for security. Waited for a while and after a while I was through the line. Preceeded to gate 6. Boarded... I was seat A1 its nice being in the front. We departed and turned to the south. When we got high enough the FA was going to come around with drink/snack service when she came over the loud speeker and said "Welcome abord Skywest Fight 3923 with service to Salt Lake City... I regret to imform you that the ground crew at GEG forgot the ice" I chuckled. Good job! She came around and asked me what I would like I said "Sprite"... she laughed and said "Its going to be hot" I didnt care if it was hot or cold! I just wanted my sprite! We landed and deboarded at gate E10!

DL 387 SLC-ATL
Departure gate: D2
I boarded the 764 (like most of my flights it was twords the back) and made my way to 42A and sat down. We waited for everyone else to board and we were on our way. Taxi'd to the runway an waited for a 738, and a couple of SkyWest CRJ to depart in front of us. Finally it was out turn to take a risk at the runway... Pilots applied full power and it felt like the longest takeoff roll that I have experienced! We got up to FL310 and the captain turned off the seat belt sign. Half way through the flight I had to go to the bathroom to get rid of all that sprite. And when I got back to the Lav. the first lav said "vacent" so I proceeded through the door and come to find out the lav. was not vacent. There was a woman in there!!! OooPs! HEHE! Ohh Well... lock the door next time lady! We landed in ATL and taxi'd to T2 and parked. Deplaned... And I made my way to my next flight.

DL 1664 ATL-CMH
Departure gate A27
I boarded and went back to my seat 42E. As I sat down I noticed that it is really hot in the airplane? So I ask the guy next to me and he said "The air car was broaken". I was okay with it until I found out that we were 29th for departure... jeeze we waited for a good hour. It was fine once we got airborne and the air worked well! We landed in CMH and taxi'd to C55 and deplaned! I had a great trip!
Correct my spelling errors! I am not the greatest speller! This is my first time doing a "Trip Report" so sorry if u get board with it!

Luv767s, I could never figure out why they put 757s on the route? I dont mind it because I like the 752s. The ATL-CMH flight was packed.lots of people going to CMH I guess! The new addition is just another reason for Delta to put a couple MD-88's and a couple 752's on those routes! But hey, the more flights the better!
