Delta: SAN-ATL-IND RT 767, DC-9, With Pictures

Delta 1662
SAN-ATL
Depart: 8:00 AM | 8:01 AM
Arrive: 3:04 PM | 3:13 PM
Boeing 767-300 (N138DL)

Landing video: http://youtu.be/jfSq4pGtGio

I arrived at Terminal 2 at 5:50 AM and found long lines for both the Delta ticket counter and security at T2W. The line for bag drop stretched back to the rotunda where security is. It moved quickly for how many people there was. I checked my bag and decided I did not want to wait in what had to be a 40 minute line for T2W, so I headed over to T2E security where there was much less of a line.

After clearing security I walked around to get some pictures.

Around 7:20 AM they started to board, but did not really board anyone until closer to 7:40AM. By this time I figure there is no way we can depart on time. I board with zone two and take my seat in 37G.

The flight attendants do a nice job politely pushing everyone on board and getting them to take their seats. We had four San Diego based flght attendants on our flight, I am always a little surprised to hear the FAs are from SAN, but it seems to happen quite often on flights between SAN-ATL.

Due to the polite pushing we push back only a few minutes behind schedule. The safety video is done in the push as the engines spring to life. We start a slow taxi to 27, Alaska, Southwest and United all jump in front of us to make us number four for the runway.

After a smooth takeoff we head west before making the turn south for the Poggi Two departure. As we climb we are told about the service that will be started soon and the food options we will have to buy on board. Not long after they passed out menus for the EATS for those who wanted it.

I took a look through the TV offerings and not find much, not a big surprise due to the time of day. Instead I read my book and listened to music. I did enjoy having the PTV with the moving map, it's a feature I missed last week on UA/CO.

I took a Coke and Biscoff for the snack service. The BOB option was only offering breakfast items due to our departure time. I would have had something if they offered lunch, but they did not, so I did not partake.

Around New Mexico the Captian made an announcement that we were expecting some turbulence for most of the remainder of the flight. He had warned us on the ground at San Diego about this, so it was not new news.

What was a bit of a surprise was that we had passed just north of Tuscon and now nearing San Antonio. We continued on a south routing, passing directly over Houston.

After we reached Texas the rest of the flight was pretty bumpy, bad enough the flight attendants could not do a full second service.

Even with our later departure out of SAN and southerly routing, we still managed to land on 28 just before 3:00 PM. The normal taxi from 28 got us into the gate at 3:15 PM.

Delta 2281
ATL-IND
Depart: 4:41 PM | 5:01 PM
Arrive: 6:17 PM | 6:29 PM
McDonnell Douglas MD-90 (N911DA)

Takeoff video: http://youtu.be/WhLMnrkhSXk
Landing video: http://youtu.be/2WdLlrT4SVE


After disembarking I check the monitors at the gate to see I will be out of B20. I already knew this though because of the Delta app on my phone. As I turned it on I got a message telling me gate. As I walked around the airport I got another message telling me we had a new departure time of 4:55. Not much of a delay, but really nice to be notified as soon as possible.

Around 4:00 PM I walk over to B20 and the flight to Newark, at least I think it was EWR, was having trouble getting anywhere. There were a lot of people standing and looking confused and going nowhere. I continued to walk away from that mess. A few minutes later I got another update from the Delta app saying my gate had changed to B18. I really like this app, it's very nice to get this info as it happens.

Some of these gates in the B Concourse are too small for the aircraft they have departing out of it. B20 and B18 for example are too small for a MD-90, they do not have enough seats in the area for the size of the plane, so people are forced to stand in the middle of the Concourse and block the way of those trying to walk to their gate.

Around 4:20 PM ship 9211 noses into B18. They were able to turn the plane quickly and we started to board at 4:40 PM. I am skeptical that we will depart anywhere close to the new departure time, however, somehow we manage to get everyone on board and push back at 5:00 PM.

We are about number three for departure when we get to the end of 26L. To the west are ominous looking clouds and considering how the ride in was, it can be expected to have a bumpy ride out. After only a brief delay on 26R we buzz down the runway and lift off into the windy and bumpy air. We turn to the northwest as we depart and fly through a good amount of turbulence.

It smooths out only for a brief time on our climb. The Captian makes some kind of announcement about turbulence but I can't hear it due to my location in the aircraft.

We fly through moderate turbulence as we pass through clouds at FL300. Again, for only a brief time we had a smooth ride. For the next half hour we flew through consistent moderate turbulence. The FA made one pass through the cabin and I think she was brave to do that. By now we are told that we are starting our descent to Indy and the turbulence continues.

Winds are the surface were at 25, guting to 38! This made for a bumpy approach but a smooth landing on 23L. We parked at A6, which was a very quick taxi. Next to us was a Delta A330. It was departing to Frankfurt.

After exiting into the terminal I was very impressed with Indy's new terminal. It it's new, big, open and very nice. It gives a great first impression to the city.

Delta 1613
IND-ATL
Depart: 2:16 PM | 2:21 PM
Arrive: 3:51 PM | 3:59 PM
Douglas DC-9-51 (N770NC)

Takeoff video: http://youtu.be/Rrugub1N32w
Landing video: http://youtu.be/ByqU8npTukE


I chekced in online and printed my boating pass. I was dropped off at 12:15 PM and there was no line for bag drop. The airport was built with the future in mind, so there is empty space for the airport to grow into.

Because IND is only a few years old the security are is one of a few in the country that was designed post 9/11. Because of this the layout of the security area is very nice and supposed to make this a quick process. Not staffing it properly will make it just as miserable of an experience as the worst security check point. They only had two lines open and did not open up a third one until the line was well backed up. A lot of lazy TSA "working."

After clearing security I walk around and check out the airport. There are many food and shopping areas around and lots of space at each gate. I do hope that airlines grow into the airport so much of it does not continue to be underused.

After walking around I headed back to A7 to see my DC-9 arrive. As I did this I watched and A330 nose into A5. This was the same 330 I saw in Friday, it was returning from Frankfurt.

After watching the -9 nose in I walked around a little more before waiting for boarding to start. I boarded with zone 2 and took my seat in 24A. This is, in my mind, the perfect seat on a DC-9. You are nice and cosy, nestled up next to that JT8D.

The flight attendants mentioned they were New York based, but these were not from the Pan Am era, much younger and much more New York.

We pushed a few minutes late and started both engines. After a taxi to the end of 23L we are told that we have an ATC release of 2:43, another 15 minutes.

After serving our delay to please ATC we take to the runway and takeoff power is added to give us that great DC-9 roar. It takes a while to climb to FL290. As we are in the climb the FA tells us that due to turbulence we will not be served. In the same breath she mentions that it is too short of a flight to provide service and instated they will offer water only. Which one is it? Turbulence or the length of flight? The turbulance appears to be a lie since the entire flight was smooth. I think a little laziness was at play with this crew.

They did offer peanuts and water. No Biscoff to be found.

We start a gradual descent into ATL and set up for a right downwind for 26R. We had a lengthy final and over the numbers a lot of power was added, but we make a nice landing and quickly find our way to B10.

Takeoff video: http://youtu.be/gR26jKyDB1Q
Landing video: http://youtu.be/pfRWCPlqusc


I walked around to get some pictures to kill the tme in Atlanta. My flight to SAN was out of A25 so I spent most of my time in Concourse A.

Boarding started right at 6:30 PM using the automated system. This seems like something that is almost rare now. It used to be used in San Diego, but is not anymore. I also notice it is not used at any other out station. There are times that it is not used in Atlanta either.

I take my seat in 45A, and the rest of the plane is boarded quickly. We are ready to go right at our scheduled departre time, but we wait for surrounding aircraft before we can push.

We taxi out and have a minimal delay at the end of 26L for takeoff. We blast off into the night and head west to San Diego. After the seat belt is turned off the flight attendants hand out the EATS menu.

About 10 minutes after the flight attendants walked through the cabin with the drink carts. The guy in front of me stopped the FA and said he was ready to order. It took five minutes to inform him that they start at the front and work their way back.

I ordered the Focaccia Italiana sandwich, an Italian style roast beef on baby spinach topped with fontina cheese and red onion served on a sun-dried tomato focaccia roll with a basil-pesto spread. I had a coke to wash it down along with Biscoff for desert. For the price of $8.50 it is on par for what you can find in the airport and quality was good.

I watched TV to pass time. About 90 minutes outside of San Diego the second snack service started where they again offered a drink and snack.

The captain thanks us for flying Delta and we start a gradual descent. A clear night makes for a nice view of downtown as we coast past on our way to 27.

After a nice landing we taxi to gate 39. This 767 will serve the redeye back to Atlanta.

After disembarking I head to baggage where my bag comes off after about 15 minutes of waiting.

Overall all the flights were good with adequate service, with the exception of the crew from New York. I definitely enjoy the PTV and the options it offers for free, I only wish this was available fleet wide. The Delta app is a great resource for the airline to keep in contact with the passenger. I am interested if other airlines do this same thing with their apps.

Great photos. I was especially liked getting a perspective on the IND midfield terminal. IND did a great job on their new facility.

Hey

Nice report, thanks for sharing! Enjoyed the spotting pics, nice you still got a CO plane at SAN.
Quite ironic that the domestic 767 had all the whistles and bells while the ER models still have old-style IFE.
Is that 330 in IND a diversion??

Greetings
Marc
Next trip report: Well worn A330s and Hassle free MUC transfer

Great report and pics-I am going to be flying a DL 763 and MD-90 for the first time next month, and actually picked out seats in the same positions you were, so it was great to get a "preview" of what I am already looking forward to. The videos were fantastic too, thanks for posting!

Very detailed report, and nice coverage of your flights to and from IND. I like how you write text about each flight and then begin the photos in sucession ...

A330 at IND

Did not know DL operated any flights to/from IND with an A332. Very cool!

Best,

Matthew
I love to fly!

Hi there,
Nice trip report, also like your pics and vids. Enjoyed it all very much!

Next to us was a Delta A330. It was departing to Frankfurt.

Wow, didn't actually know that they flew IND-FRA

Quoting C767P (Reply 1):
After exiting into the terminal I was very impressed with Indy's new terminal. It it's new, big, open and very nice. It gives a great first impression to the city.

Looks like a very nice terminal indeed!

cheers,

Both of these 330 flights were military charters. Same aircraft on Friday as Sunday, was going to Frankfurt on Friday, returning Sunday.

Nice trip report and pictures! I actually did a DL DC-9 daytrip to IND a few summers ago and like you I was also impressed with the new terminal.
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Great report. I lived in Indianapolis as a kid (moving elsewhere in the late '80s), and I could recognize the unique Dunkin' Donuts sign as the design for Roselyn Bakery, a local chain that closed their stores in the '90's. The nuggets of info that get stuck in your brain....

It has been a while since I have been through CVG, but yes, I can see some similarities.
