I have flown it umpteen times on the 737-700 and the 717-200. It's very pleasant. It's the same domestic first-class seat that you'd find on a DL
MD88, and indeed maybe a little nicer. Correct that: to LA
, it's the same domestic first-class seat that you'd find on a CO
738, because that flight is on a 737. (The 737 a/c is a little wider, and the seat seems a little wider.) The XM
Satellite Radio is free (just as it is in coach), and it's wonderful. If you have your own headphones for your computer or Ipod, bring those, because they are probably better, but the little ear thingies they give you are also fine. There is plenty of legroom. You have, like on all domestic F, an f/a that primarily watches your cabin, but also helps the others. You should feel free to ask for as much beverage as you want, and I think you technically get two free cocktails, and they may not enforce that limit. On my last trip to ATL
, they had some cookies or some kind of similar snack. [Edit: After reading JayDavis's post above, he is correct, they have a broader selection of snacks, including those TGIFridays chips; I'm not a chip guy, I usually go for those little butter biscuits, and they definitely have those.] I also think you can ask for at least water and maybe some other beverage during boarding -- but I don't recall.
You get to preboard. You have a special line at the ticket counter if you haven't printed your boarding pass at home. At ATL
, there is a shortcut through the first level of security for First Class passengers, which you can use.
All-in-all, you will enjoy your trip.
