Hi everyone. I just arrived a few hours ago from Orlando on Delta Express flight 2528. This was my first trip with Delta Express and overall, it was an enjoyable experience. Our departing flight from Columbus was on Delta Express flight 2535 departing at 6:45 a.m. and arriving in MCO at 8:55, but we arrived 15 minutes early. Delta Express' 737-200's do show their age, and are somewhat noisy, but they still fly very well. The cabin comfort is equal to Delta's. The seats were standard yet comfortable. Flight attendants on Delta Express are very courtious, professional, and friendly. The departing flight was uneventful, but we saw an amazing sunrise during the plane's climb. The return flight was also uneventful, but we also got another nise sunrise and a great view of downtown Columbus when we landed. Overall, I would definatly recomend Delta Express.
I did not get to do any spotting while at MCO. All I saw while I was there were a few United's Delta's, and Northwest's, and a stray ATA or two. I was very disappointed. I wish I could have stayed to watch for some good planes, but my parents wanted to get out of the airport as quickly as possible :-(. On the other hand, my parents left me at CMH for a while to do some spotting. For the first time I saw a tandem takeoff at CMH. A Skyway Beechcraft 1900 tookoff at the exact same time as a United Express CRJ on the two parallel runways. it was pretty cool. Also I saw a Mexicana A320 come in for a charter flight to Cancun. I was amazed to see the aircraft here! Apperently, Mexicana operates weekly charters from CMH to CUN. So anyway, it's good to be back, and now I have to catch up on all the topics I've missed!
