Sat Jun 25, 2005 6:53 am

I am going be taking Delta Airlines for the first time next Tuesday from LGA - OAK with one stop over in Atlanta. I was wondering what is it like to be in Delta Airlines, also what's to do in Atlanta while waiting 3 hours or so before my flight to Oakland. Okay Thanks!

Delta.com has a wealth of information on the airline's services - I'd suggest going there for the most accurate and specific guidance on what to expect for your upcoming flight.

Hey Chris, I hope you have a great flight. DL has friendly staff on the ground and airborne, but don't expect much. My recent trips with DL have been okay but nothing to write home about. Perhaps it is the fact that I am used to the great service of AM and MX.

ATL is huge but as for spotting I don't think it's that great. Depending on the time of the day, ATL can be really busy. You can take the train that takes you from one terminal to the other and explore each terminal if you want. There are lots of places to eat and magazine/candy stores.
Next flights: MEX-LAX AM 738, LAX-PVG DL 77L, SHA-PEK CA 789, PEK-PVG CA A332, PVG-ORD MU 77W, ORD-MEX AM 738

First thing to do is expect to be in ATL more than 3 hours.

Check out the Budwiser brew house in terminal A above the train station. Good place to hang out.

I personally prefer Chili's over the Budweiser Brewhouse (next to the Crown Room in the center of A)...better food and service from my experiences, plus you don't have to deal with the obnoxious smell of cigarette smoke.

As for what to do at ATL, you can get a good workout just walking around the concourses. I'd grab a meal, and just walk around...lots of Delta action, but a decent amount of AirTran...

As for service, it's nothing to write home about. You'll get the snack basket on LGA-ATL, where you get the choice between a few things (sun chips, crackers, granola bar, etc.); on ATL-OAK, there's the snack box (oreos, cheese and crackers, etc.) and the snack basket later on during the flight.

Not to shift focus or anything, but I'm flying DL GRR-CVG-CDG in a week and I have a 7-hour layover in CVG and was wondering what there is to do there; also wondering about what to expect for my CVG-CDG flight (and my return FCO-ATL flight). Any info would be appreciated.

Web, I've flown Delta transatlantic several times, and as it has been said for Delta domestic flights already, don't expect much. The crew will probably be friendly, but there is not so much to eat. Expect dinner and then breakfast on the way over, with just water and maybe coffee and tea in between. On the way back, you will get lunch and then a light lunch again later in the flight. There are drink services in between, but little or no food, which is different from the European airlines I have flown. While I do not believe Delta is as good as European airlines, I think you will still find it to be pleasant.
