Delta Trip Report FSD-MSP Pics (Pt. 2)

Sun Nov 13, 2011 10:45 pm

Pt 1 of this Trip Report can be found at-
Land Of 10,000 Lakes On DL SAN-MSP-FSD Pt. 1 Pics (by Mike89406 Nov 12 2011 in Trip Reports)

INTRODUCTION-
My trip in Minnesota went from the warm 60’s-70’s to virtually pre-winter weather and blustery in the first day. I had some quality time with the family. The part I wasn’t looking forward to was the early morning 1 ½-2 hour drive back to Sioux Falls since I don’t sleep well before traveling.

By the time I reached Sioux Falls I still had time to get breakfast from a diner and proceed to the Airport.

ARRIVAL- I dropped off the rental car and proceeded to ticketing

CHECK-IN & SECURITY- I checked in at one of the kiosks and noticed that there were seats up in the front part of Y class. I then changed my seating assignments from FSD thru LAX. The gate here at FSD is very quick and not so crowded I made it thru in 2 minutes

Did a little spotting however there wasn’t much to see at this small airport.
One and only terminal at FSD

Nice trip report and pictures! I always enjoy reading about and seeing pictures of the "smaller" airports across the US.
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Thanks, I think this is the first Trip report I have seen with pics of FSD. I could be wrong but I coudn't find any others by searching the forum.

Nice report, and a correction, and United Airbus is an A320, not a 319. The 320's have two overwing exits as the one in the picture does, the 319 only has one overwing exit.
