Date: 23rd March 2006
Departure Apt: SFO
Arrival Apt: LAS
Aircraft: Airbus A230-200 (N447UA)
Flight No: UA1416
Call sign: United 1416
My connecting Ted flight was supposed to depart at 15:41, however we eventually pushed back at 17:15, not very good, for a first impression of UA
's little cousin.
I was assigned seat 4A in Economy plus, and was surprised to be told that the seat pitch in this section of the aircraft was 35 inches, wow!!
After push back, we had a quick taxi to runway 1L, where we lifted off a few mins later at 17:30. Service on the flight was a drink, and a bag of munchies. While in flight, I took a few pics, as we crossed the Sierra Nevada Mountain range.
Flight time to LAS
was just over an hour, with wheels down at LAS
being accomplished by 18:40 (approx 1hour 30 mins late).
After deplaning, I made my way to the main terminal and baggage claim, where my bag arrived 25 minutes later.
In the Terminal.
A short cab ride later, and I was in my hotel - The Flamingo, ready for my first night in Vegas
I will not be writing about the return leg, due to the fact that the Ted (LAS
) flight was only 45 mins, and the UA
) flight was a night one, so I basically slept most of the way home, and I took no pics either.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this short report.
