Sorry it has taken nearly a week to post this trip report just been busy and such. Anyhow Widget1580 aka Travis planned a day trip to LAX and I decided to go with him. He started in SBN and I started out in DTW and we met at CVG

First flight of the day
DTW-CVG
10-29-05
flight 5198 operated by Comair
Equipment CRJ7
Depart 610am
Seat 3D

Departed a bit late because we had to be de-iced. I guess that time of the year is coming around again. However after we de-iced we were on our way to CVG. Sorry no pics from this leg of the trip. Too early hehe Wink


Next flight
CVG-ATL
Flight number 325
Depart 906am
Equipment MD88
seat 31A
This is where I met up with Travis. It was good to see him again Smile
Anyhow our flight left the gate on time, but due to fog we left late. When we departed there were around 30 aircraft in the lineup to depart!
It was a very nice flight. The whole crew was extremely pleasant and always had a smile on their faces. We sat in the row that the f/a sits. Her name was Mimi. She is based in BOS She was sooo friendly and received my compliments as well as the other crew. Other than the flight was very nice once we took off.
And all of the F/As thought we were crazy to spend a day in LAX and fly for fun...hah

My snack

Next flight
ATL-LAX
Flight number 266
Seat 39G
Equipment 767-400

When we arrived into ATL Travis friend Rigo aka Jetblue surprised us and was going to spend the day in LAX with us! Smile

This was the first time for all of us to ride on 764. She is a powerful beauty. After switching around some seats we ended up by each other. We were delayed yet again because we took on some more fuel and freight. Once we took off it was a nice 4 hour flight out to LAX. The in flight movie was Batman Begins or returns of something like that. I didn't watch it. We arrived in LAX around 2pm local time and began our 9 hour stay at LAX.

Here are some pics from the flight
Travis and Rigo on the 764

some mountains on our way to LAX

our snack...consisted of some oreos raisins and crackers and cheese...i traded my oreos for Travis, and Rigos raisins Smile

some cabin shots

A nice smoggy view of LAX on approach


Once we deplaned we went to one of the parking lots to watch some of the planes come in....here a few pics I got from that

A BA 744 coming in...took three pics of it

Then I got some pics of a WN 737 on approach

There are a lot of WN 737 coming in and out of LAX they get so boring.

Alright I will have more pics and what not of what we did in LAX for the day and plus the return trip home LAX-ATL-CVG-DTW in pt2 which I will be posting probably a bit later today...I hope you enjoy sorry if its not the best trip report...also I managed to get not one single registration....yes go me!  Smile

Nice report. At first I was skeptical of the new M88 interior, although it grows on me with every pic that I see, and now I think it looks quite sharp. I'm hoping to see it soon, although SEA doesn't see the M88 at all (maybe I'll see it soon on a 757 or maybe an M90). What do you think of the new interiors? I also want to fly on a 764 - haven't had the chance yet, but trying to get on the daily ATL-SEA.

some cabin shots

I thought that every seat on DL 764s had PTVs installed..I guess not.

DL will have PTVs on their 764s when they start using them for international routes...but not for a coulple years i think....they will still use the 764s without PTVs on international routes
