This trip was from a little over a year ago, in November of 2019. I did all of my flight training out of Gateway airport, in Phoenix. So I was pretty familiar with it, and was used to seeing a lot of Allegiant airplanes. Allegiant uses the airport, as one of its hubs. A few years ago, I had flown an...Jump to post

DTW is a really nice airport to transfer at, modern and convenient. And still in the Eastern time zone.
Thanks for sharing!
The cabin of N683DA looks amazing... :cloudnine: Mood lighting, curved overhead bins, large PTV - excellent for a 28 year old "veteran"! Good job Delta, well done! They were both 28 years old. They are older then me! N681DA flew to VCV on Monday, a week after i flew on it. Not sure if it'...Jump to post
It has been almost a year since I finished up my CFI checkrides. I had not done much flying in the last year. I was also looking at getting my high performance endorsement. So, I decided to go down to Florida to get the endorsement and get IFR current. Once I decided to do that, I also decided to st...Jump to post
Enjoyed the winter weather photos with a little Florida sunshine mixed in! Is it more, or did the seats on your Frontier flight look extra thin -- how was the comfort? It was a nice variety from the cold, to the sun! I'm flying tomorrow and it should be similar, starting off cold and snowy, and end...Jump to post

Wow, another cool day-excursion!... Interesting that SYR would have so many mainline flights... There's something about these domestic flights amid the snow... as homely as apple pie...

I saw that SYR is getting rid of the exit pods https://www.syracuse.com/news/2020/09/syracuse-airport-will-get-rid-of-those-unusual-exit-pods.html I really don't see the problem with them, but I can't imagine they're going back the old method of having someone sit on a stool for 8 hours.

I came across some cheap flights, and I decided to do one last day trip in 2020. My first flights for the day would be on a DL CRJ-700 and an E170. It has been a while since I was on a Delta Embraer. I also would be flying on Frontier, which I have only flown a few times. My last flight would be on ...Jump to post

Thanks for the TR. It's very hard to picture LGA with a "new" terminal - still getting used to that. Thanks for sharing. I'm not familiar with the formalities taking place even for domestic flights, but do wonder where else this is taking place in the US (Hawaii, Alaska?). I know. I usual...Jump to post

I am curious as to why you would not just have driven this? It would be much quicker, and less risky due to misconnect, than a connection in CLT.
I was going down to New York City for a few days, over Thanksgiving weekend. Before the pandemic jetBlue had 3-4 daily flights. Delta had 3 flights each to JFK and LGA, and United has flights to EWR. jetBlue did not have any nonstop flights from SYR-JFK the day we wanted to fly, or the day before. D...Jump to post

About a month ago I was looking at flights, and came across some flights to Florida for $25. I had not flown SYR-MCO, in 7 years. This was also my third time in 2020 flying the jetBlue A320 at SYR. Usually they fly the E190 to SYR. On the day of the flight, I got to the airport a little over an hour...Jump to post
This looked really familiar. I flew the same flight, also on N658UA in October.Jump to post

Wonderful report! Wondering what UAL is like these days-contemplating XMas home from IAD. Love the 2nd climbout shot from IAD, you got my apartment! Nice. All my flights on UA were good, I have another flight booked on them through IAD, at the end of next month. That's awesome that I got your apart...Jump to post
Did you have 767 in your log previously? I flew them in the 90s quite a bit, but not since 2008. They've been out of regular service in Australia for over 5 years. Yeah. I have flown on two other 767-300s, both DL. The first was from MXP-ATL. The other was from LAX-JFK, after a 767-400 had a mechan...Jump to post
Wow, so you basically just booked a joyride across the continent and back? Even so, why didn't you stay one night at an airport hotel at the other end in order to catch up on rest and such?... At any rate, thank you for sharing! I wanted to fly on the 767. The only flight that was on it, was the ov...Jump to post
Back in August, I found some cheap flights on United. They were only $79 each way. I was taking a few flights on one of my favorite airplanes, the 757. I originally was supposed to be going to Denver, but there was a schedule change. The 757 was replaced, with a 737. After finding a new flight, I ca...Jump to post
Terrible behaviour by the cabin crew. But a nice trip report indeed. And isn't it great to be able to arrive at an airport just 25 minutes before boarding time? I guess that's one of the only advantages of this pandemic. I tried it myself last weekend during my first airline travel in seven months....Jump to post

Great trip report. Though personally I will be happy they are gone. I did many flights years ago AA YVR-SJC-DFW, a long and loud flight with a stop in SJC as it could not make it there in one shot. As well as BLI-LAS or BLI-PSP with Allegiant. I mainly flew on DL MD-88/90s. I also flew on an Allegi...Jump to post
I had been at home in New York for a few months, during everything going on with COVID. I had my apartment back in Phoenix too. I decided to put my stuff in storage, because I am not sure if or when I will be going back. Back in May, I flew out to move out of my apartment. I had limited options for ...Jump to post
Thanks for an interesting and varied TR, and continuing to post to whet our appetites for travel in difficult times. I wish we were able to travel more for leisure.

Do you ever come through MSP or DTW with Delta to get back to SYR? I try to fly Delta, whenever i can. They are the airline i prefer, though i usually connect in ATL, DTW or JFK. I've been to MSP a few times, but not nearly as much as the other ones. The MSP-SYR flight is seasonal. It hasn't flown ...Jump to post
This was from a trip last fall. I had spent the majority of the summer at school. So, I decided to go home in September, for a long weekend that I had. For the flight out I booked myself on the jetBlue redeye, and then on an E190 for the second flight. I had done this flight several times. The morni...Jump to post
I had a quick trip that I was taking down to Charleston. For the flight down, I was on American with a connection in Charlotte. When I was looking at my options for the flight back, one flight caught my attention. I saw jetBlue had a flight, with a connection in Boston. The second flight from Boston...Jump to post
Nice Trip Report! I have had to take a few flights during COVID, on AA, DL & UA. The flights on DL were definitely the best, in terms of how they handled the situation overall. My flights on American the other day, were very full. There was someone in the aisle and the middle seats, next to me. ...Jump to post
Thank for the great report. You are really lucky to be able to get 2 flights on the MD88. I never had the chance to log a 88. Luckily I managed to get 2 last flights on a 83 last year in Taiwan.

Nice TR! Great to see that UA is offering PTVs on the B737-700, but makes me wonder, if ALL B737-700 are equipped with IFE... What about the ex AirTran examples? I know someone who flew this same flight a few weeks before i did, on another UA 737-700. They said that their plane did not have the PTVs.Jump to post

At the beginning of June 2020, Delta retired their MD-88/90s. In the weeks leading up to this, I had been debating about taking one last flight on a Mad Dog. I decided 3 days before this trip, to take one last flight on a Delta MD-88 before they were gone. After looking at a few options, I decided t...Jump to post

Great report. I usually sit in 5A/6A myself on the A320’s. How was it flying with COVID around? I had heard they weren’t doing as much services!
