Re: DL retiring MD-80/90s quickly

Flight DL1995 operated by M90 / Registration N925DN will be making her final landing tonight at IAH around 832pm central time. IAH will probably never see another M90 land here. Ship 9225 will head back to ATL tomorrow morning as flight DL90 and sadly that will be her final revenue flight. The only ...

Re: New Delta First Class Seats - A321neo

I flew in “F” from ATL-IAH (seat 2D) A319 registration N352NB and I can tell you that was the “tightest” seat pitch in “F” that I’ve ever experienced. I can’t imagine why DL made the seat pitch so horrible on this aircraft! But I do love the current “F” seat pitch on A320/321’s, M90’s and the 75’s.
