I usually do not like flying one way...but I had to this time since renting a car would have been more expensive than flying....besides....flying is fun !
The trip started with the usual Atlanta Journey to the Airport. Traffic was no that bad as you would expect on a 4th of July....i suppose everyone was still drunk or sleeping.
on arrival at the delta terminal, I had a chance to see some delta traffic taxing to the runway.
Checking in was simple and fast. I used the Kiosk and within a minute I had my boarding pass and was ready to conquer the TSA lines. The TSA agents were a little more efficient than usual this morning and the lines seemed to move faster. My gate was B12 and after talking to the gate agent I went to grab a bite before boarding.
I was lucky to see N102DA with the 75th Anniversary retro colors loading up and taxing...

Other Traffic observed........
Boarding was on time and by Zone. The flight attendants were rather colorful with their southern jokes and mannerism. They went as far as to wear false teeth. It was funny.
Arrival in CLT was on Runway 18R and there was no traffic at all in CLT we just went straight to the gate and parked.
some CLT traffic.......
