*Video Only* Delta A350 cockpit flying lesson and Delta One Suite

Thu Jun 20, 2019 11:55 pm

While not a traditional "trip report" it's something I think most will find interesting. I was flying from Seattle to Tokyo Narita on May 30 on board Delta's Airbus 350. I was lucky enough to get Delta One seats which is the new lie flat product and Delta's best business class. In addition to the wonderful seats, they have privacy doors and do not disturb signs outside of each door providing a lot of privacy and opportunity to rest. However it's difficult to sleep when you have an 18 inch screen in each suite with tons of entertainment options.

What made this trip even more special was the invite from the crew to visit the cockpit prior to flight. Besides just seeing the cockpit the Captain and crew proceeded with a brief flying lesson and orientation of instruments making it as very special visit. Seeing the latest technology and getting an explanation and lesson from crew made this an unforgettable experience especially for an airliner enthusiast.

If you ever get a chance to fly on an A350, I highly recommend it especially if you can fly in the Delta One Suite with lie flat seats. Hopefully you'll get a chance to see the cockpit too!
