Friday morning I woke up and we put my cat in her cage and left her with my aunt.

PBI - IAD
Departure: 12:00 a.m
Arrival: 2:25 p.m
The cabin was bright and clean as usual. The F/A's were really friendly.
Only at PBI...
Take off from PBI:
Decent into IAD.
Does anyone know whey there is a huge straight clearing through the forrest?
AF & LH
That is the ugliest but coolest thing I have ever seen at an airport.
That was my first time at IAD it was a nice airport and it was clean and functional and will be even better when it has a metro connection. It reminded me of MUC and IST.
Some D.C pictures:
Near Dupont Circle.
Canal in Georgetown.
All the trees were like this. It was beautiful and I have never expirienced spring before so it was really a treat.
My mom and I had lunch at a Turkish restaurant then walked down Embassy row on our last day and then we took the Metro to Regan Airport to go back home.
None of the check in machines were working which was really annoying. At DCA you don't give your bags at check in you give them to security I found this strange I have never seen this at another aiport before.

Sorry about the lack of info I lost the boarding pass for this leg.
The seats were old looking and the plane didn't feel modern or clean at all.
Less leg room than JetBlue but the seat itself was softer.
I am still not sure if I like their new color scheme.
The tray table was disgusting.

Even less food than B6 I didn't even get the can but whatever.
CLT was so crowded this time.

CLT - PBI
Aircraft: Airbus A321
I've never been on an A321 before it seems so long inside.
View from my seat.
Baggage claim in PBI.
Conclusion: B6 was good and service was friendly and they have great F/A's. I like their planes and they have good IFE. US is a good airline and I like them but they need to clean thier planes because the A321 was dirty too but it was atleast modern. Maybe they need to re-do thier seats. PBI could use a renovation but it is a great airport and I'd rather use it than MIA. I love IAD DCA and CLT nothing to complain about there. D.C is such an amazing city and I highly suggest that you see it if you haven't already.
