American Eagle First Class CRJ-900 PHL-CVG *VIDEO FLIGHT REPORT*

Sat Apr 27, 2019 7:25 pm

Video to full flight report with takeoff and landing: https://youtu.be/fF3rq95jmes

Flying to DFW from SXM connecting through PHL and CVG.

I sat in seat 2F in a usual regional first class recliner. The seat gave 38 inches of pitch and 19.7 inches of width according to SeatGuru.

I got to my seat a couple minutes before departure so I wasn't offered a pre-departure bevarge. Not sure if there even was one.

Departed with a smooth takeoff. This flight was only a couple days after the 737 MAX was globally grounded. During takeoff, I spotted an American Airlines 737 MAX near the cargo areas of PHL.

I still haven't been on one and I would like to try it even if it's AA's infamous OASIS interior. Thankfully though, it seems they will be doing some modifications... to first class at least...

About 15 minutes after takeoff, we were offered a choice of drink and a snack from a small snack basket. Due to the medium-short length of this flight which was around 1 hour and 20 minutes, there is no full meal.

Service was fast and adequate, nothing really memorable.

We began descending into CVG shortly. Downtown Cincinnati was in view.

CVG is an interesting airport... originally one of Delta's largest hub before the bankruptcy.

It had flights to HNL, ANC, AMS, BRU, FRA, LON, MUC, CDG, FCO, and ZRH and was planning on expanding to PEK, NRT, and PVG... only to be reduced to CDG today.

CVG eventually gained another transatlantic flight to KEF on WOW air but was shortly cut.

Thanks for reading/watching. Hope you enjoyed.
