Agreed. My first time flying included an MD-11 on ATL-MCO. And later it was always hard to choose between the 763, 764, and 777 on that route.
The days when people shopped at malls instead of Amazon, listened to FM radio instead of streaming music, left their teacup dog at home instead of pretending it’s a service dog, met at bars instead of Tindr, and didn’t pretend to know what gulten was when asking if the bread is gulten free.
Welcome to 2019, where 15x-16x daily service to Florida triumphs over 8 or 9 widebodies, where load factors are in the 90s instead of the 50s... and where DL is making lots of $$$$.
Well done Sir! Good to wake up to a laugh!
