Atlanta On AA/US And E170 With Extended Winglets

Sun Aug 17, 2014 1:39 am

Every summer I go to ATL for about a week. I found out in January what dates I would be going and after looking into my flight options I decided I would take US from SYR-CLT on an A320 and then take an A319 from CLT-ATL. Then for the return flight I would take an AA CRJ-700 to ORD and then a E145 to SYR. The total cost for the flights were $713.50. UA was about 830 and DL $760. Before I made my flight called to see if there was the AA flight to ORD at about 6AM then to ATL and back on US because those flight times worked better, but online it showed that the those flights were not available. They said the same thing when I called, so I decided to make the US flight through CLT on the A320 and A319 (as it turns out the A319 I would have taken was N814AW one of the first A319’s to be repainted into the new AA colors.) about a month after making the flight the AA early morning ORD flight had become available and the return US flight was still open. So I called US and said that the flight wasn’t available when I made my CLT flight. They said that I would have to pay the $200 dollar change fee plus the difference in airfare. So a couple weeks later I got an email from AA that my return flight ATL had been changed. The times changed by about an hour and the ATL-ORD flight had switched from a CR7 to the new AA (republic) E170. So once this happened I called back and since the flight had changed they said they could not change my flight, but could refund my flight and then I could just rebook the flight because it was only a couple dollars more. So with this I rebooked myself on the new flights which would be an AA E145 SYR-ORD then a new AA (republic) E170 ORD-ATL. Then for the return flight it would be ATL-PHL on a US E170 and then PHL-SYR on another US E170. Once I made the flight I assigned myself the seats I wanted. The only seat I was not too happy with was the ORD-ATL flight. By the time I had made this flight, it was pretty full and one of the last window seats was 12A and it was over the wing closer to the engine. But on the rest of them I got good seats. Overall I was glad I was able to find a way to switch the flight over to the one I wanted through ORD instead of CLT.
My flight was scheduled to depart at 640AM. Boarding was scheduled to begin at 615AM. So I woke up at 345AM so I could be out of my house by 4AM. I live about 10-15 mins away from SYR so I would get there about 2 hours before boarding. I wanted to be able to see all the early flights leave so I thought I would have plenty of time to do that. I got dropped off at the curb and walked in and was on line at the AA counter at 417AM. I checked the FIDS and my flight was not on there. I was the fourth person to get on line and two of the three people ahead of me where checking in with AC to YYZ. AC uses the AA counter and gate at SYR. There was no one behind the counter when I got there. It was about a 10 minute wait and at 430 one AA person came over and made an announcement that the AA system was down. She said that they were unable to check anyone in. They could not check any bags and print out boarding passes or bag tags. However the AC system was working. So she began checking in the AC passengers. A couple of the people who were going to YYZ wanted to move their seats however the agent said that AC rents the space from AA and the only thing she is allowed to do is check people in and bags for YYZ. They can’t print out boarding passes or assign seats or anything else for connecting flights from YYZ. At least one of the passengers checking in was connecting through YYZ to NRT. She was supposed to go the night before but her flight was cancelled. She showed up really late and was arguing with the agent because she couldn’t give her an aisle seat for the long flight for the YYZ-NRT flight. The agent told her that she needed to go to the gate before she missed this flight. As all this was happening the AA system still was not working and the line for AA was getting really long. The one agent working was nice and kept us informed and kept apologizing for the situation. Only one person during the whole time on line, left the back of the line and came up to the front and for about 5 minutes and started yelling at the agent and arguing with her about he hates AA and how she was inefficient. She told him that she was on the phone with ROC, ALB, BUF and ART and trying to see if they could check us in there and send the boarding passes for the gate, or if they could give us gate passes and then check people in at the gate but the gate was having the same issue the counter was. So she said I am doing everything I can and I am sorry for the wait. After about 35 minutes of waiting everyone for AC to YYZ was checked in. However no one for AA was checking and there was a full E145 of people that were not checked in and it was less than 45 mins before departure. After about another 10 minutes, they decided that they would handwrite out the boarding pass and bag tags. They then went through the list of everyone on the plane and checked off them off. They had one person check off the person’s name then the next person she asked where your final destination was and if it was a connecting flight she handwrote out the SYR-ORD boarding pass and told you once you got to ORD, go to your connecting gate and show them the handwritten boarding pass and your ID and they will print out your next boarding pass. Then the next person handwrote out a bag tag and got your connecting flight# and city so they bag would be transferred. Then you could go up to the gate. At first they waited to have you come up to start this unusual check in process, but since I was only the second person of 50 to check in and we were 40 minutes to departure, the first person went up and down the entire line of people to find out what everyone’s name was and there final destination to cross check with the list of everyone on the plane. The person infront of me was going to TUS and the woman behind me was going to ANC, but she was not on the one list so they thought she was on UA but she was on a different list so there where a few issues getting everybody checked in. We were all told that security knew was going on so we would not have any issue with the handwritten boarding passes. I left the AA check in counter for security at 552AM. I spent 1 hour and 35 minutes on line before being “checked in” and getting my boarding pass and bag checked in. The only good thing about this long wait was that they didn’t charge $25 dollars to check in a bag. I then went down to a part of the airport were you can see the ramp. I got there in time to see the B6 E190 as flight 115 the 6AM flight to JFK pushback. After that I went up to security. It was a quick wait and I was through in about 5-10 minutes. As I was going through I saw the B6 E190 begin its taxi and the DL MD90 nonstop to ATL pushback. Once I was through I got some breakfast and went down to my gate. I have never flown AA so I was hoping I would get on the old colors before they were gone. I knew that my E170 from ORD-ATL would be the new colors. I went to my gate and saw my plane and was glad to see N688AE in old colors was sitting there. I lucked out because the day before it was in the new colors.

I then looked out my window as they were loading up the bags and saw my bag on the lower left. All the bags had the yellow handwritten bag tags
http://i.imgur.com/gWwOdTa.jpg
Eventually the pilot came on said that as we knew there were computer issues and the last of the passengers were still at check in and that as soon as they got everyone done we would pushback and they hoped to be able to make up some of the time in the air. He then said the weather and flying time and after about 15 more mins the rest of the passengers boarded and they closed the doors. Within 5 minutes we were pushing along with the B6 E190 to MCO pushed at the same time as us and he turned to the right we pushed straight back. We started up our engines and began our taxi. We taxied to runway 28 on taxiways Echo then Alpha then crossed over runway 33 and we then held short of runway 28. The E190 followed us then turned onto runway 33 then onto runway 28 and backtaxied to the end and took off infront of us. As soon as the E190 was in the air, we taxied onto the runway and took off. I was not sure why the E190 taxied onto the runway and backtaxied and took off infront of us. Just before 730AM we taxied onto the runway and took off.

We touched down around 30 minutes late. Once we landed we taxied off the runway and made a right turn and then another left turn and taxied down to a runup area and we taxied off the runway and then the pilots shut down the engines. The pilot made an announcement that since we were late, there was another plane using our gate and that it should be pushing shortly and that he would get back to us. About ten minutes went by and the pilot once again came on and said the plane was the still there and he hoped it would not be too much longer. Ten minutes passed again and he came on and said “well, im out of excuses…. They are trying to get us a new gate. We realize that many of you with less than one hour connections have your connections. Once we get to the gate go to customer service to get rebooked. About five to ten minutes later the engines started and once again the pilot came on and said they got us a new gate and we were still far away and would have about a five to ten minute taxi and we would be at the gate. Once we got to the gate I was one of the last off because I was in the last row. The people next to me were traveling to SJC had about 30 minutes, but only had to go a few gates away. I had about 40 minutes but had to switch concourses. My original layover was supposed to be 2 hours but ended up being 40 minutes with all the delays. Once I got off the plane I went to the agent to try to get my ATL boarding pass (since they could not print it out at SYR). Someone else from the plane was doing the same thing. I didn’t have too much time and had to get from the G concourse to the H concourse so I decided I would get my boarding pass at the ATL gate. Once I got to the gate, the plane was not there. But within a couple minutes the E170 N428YX with the new extended winglets pulled into the gate and boarding began within twenty minutes.

Once I got to the gate the plane was not there yet, so I went up to the gate agent and explained her what happened at SYR and she seemed pretty confused that the boarding pass was handwritten and then she asked for my ID and reprinted my ORD-ATL boarding pass. After a couple of minutes my plane pulled into the gate. Within twenty minutes of the plane pulling in they made an announcement that the flight was full so they needed people to gate check there bags to the baggage claim at ATL for free. Anyone who let them check there bag they let board before they began preboard. After preboarding and first class they began general boarding. Overall boarding was pretty quick and they got everyone on the plane and seated fairly quickly. The two flight attendants Chris and William were getting all the bags stowed and once everyone was on the plane they closed all the overhead bins and the boarding door. Prior to the flight attendants beginning the safety demo they came over to person on the aisle next to me and the woman in our row in the opposite window, they both were traveling together and after takeoff they switched around and the person on the other aisle came and sat next to me. Both people had really young babies so the flight attendants told them where the infant lifevests were. We pushed back and started our engines. Within a few minutes the flaps were lowered and we began our taxi. It was a fairly quick taxi. We taxied by the international terminal and I saw some 747s and triple seven’s. A couple minutes later the pilots came on and said how long our flight time would be, the weather in ATL and then said we were a couple planes away from takeoff and then asked the flight attendants to be seated for takeoff. Within a couple minutes we were taking the runway and after a brief hold we were beginning our takeoff roll on runway 28R from the intersection Echo Echo. It was a pretty short roll and before long we were airborne. Immediately after departure we made a wide left turn and then began to climb out. After one right turn we were on the way to ATL.

As we got closer to ATL, the pilots came on and told us the weather and our arrival information. As we began our descent the clouds started to increase and we made some turns to fly around them. At the end of the descent the flight attendants came through the cabin for trash pickup and at 12:34PM the pilots lowered the flaps. We then made our final descent and the flaps got lowered a little more and we slowed down for landing. At 12:40PM the landing gear was lowered as we turned final for runway 26R. We then flew a parallel approach alongside a DL A320. We made a rough landing on runway 26R at 12:46PM as we rolled out a DL 717 took off from 26L. We rolled down the rest of the runway and taxied via the Victor loop and without crossing over 26L we taxied into gate T10.

Once we got to the gate, they connected the jetway and deplaning began within a few minutes. As I was getting off I asked the flight attendant who was standing up in the front if I could talk to the pilots. She said the CA left the plane and the FO was in the lavatory if I wanted to wait so I told her I would and sat down in seat 1A in first class. A couple of minutes later I heard the flight attendant say to an agent who wanted to clean first class that there was still someone in first class, as she said that the FO came out of the bathroom and I went in to the cockpit. The CA was Henry and the FO was Benjamin. I talked to Benjamin for about ten minutes. I told him how I am going to be a pilot and fly a Cessna 172. We talked for a few more minutes and I took some pictures and then I thanked him and left. I then went down to baggage claim and got my bag, I then had to walk over to the other side where DL baggage claim is and I met up with my ride.

Leaving the airport
http://i.imgur.com/NR0Uaid.jpg
After the week in ATL it was time to head back to SYR. I went to ATL for a camp so there were lots of people flying different airlines to different cities. My flight was scheduled to leave at 510PM on US to PHL. Different people’s fights started leaving at 3PM so we all got to the airport around 1230PM. I was one of the few people flying US. Since it was ATL the majority of the people were flying DL and some WN. I was one of the few people flying US so I got checked in and was able to meet back up with the group pretty quickly. Once everyone got checked in and we all went through security then and then I went down the escalator and got on the underground (plane train) from security to concourse D where my flight was leaving from. I then got some dinner and found a place to charge my phone and video and take pictures of planes arriving and departing.

Once I got to the US counter, I used the kiosk to check in and print out my boarding passes and then I selected that I would be checking one bag, then I went around all the kiosks to get on line for the bag drop. Once I got to the counter I paid the $25 and my bag was 51 pounds so she made me take something out so it would be 50. Otherwise she said she would have to charge me.

I then headed to my gate and there was another E170 that had been delayed to PHL around 2PM was boarding. They made an announcement that my plane was on the ground and as soon as this plane was pushed out my plane would taxi over deplane, they would get the plane ready and we would start boarding for PHL a few minutes late.

As soon as all the passengers from the inbound flight were off they started boarding. It was a full flight and the gate agent made several announcements that the flight was full and anyone who wanted to check there bag, to their final destination could do so for no charge. A couple people went up and did that. Boarding was fairly quick and they boarded the aircraft by zone. It was a full flight so once everyone was on the flight attendants closed up all the overhead bins and the door was closed. The flight attendants then did the safety demo to a recording and we began our pushback. Once we pushed the pilots started up the engines and lowered the flaps and we began a slow taxi. When we reached the end of the ramp, the pilots were given taxi instructions to runway 9L intersection mike 2 for takeoff. We made a right turn for a ramp and taxied down to the runway. When we got to the end we had to hold for about 5 minutes for 2 or 3 planes in front of us. It was a very quick taxi from our gate to the runway was probably a little over 5 minutes and we didn’t stop until we go to the end. Once it was our turn we taxied onto the runway and held for about a minute and at 5:20PM (10 minutes late) the pilots began our takeoff roll. As we took off a Silver Wings Saab 340 took the runway behind us. It was not to powerful of a takeoff and we didn’t use up to much runway and after a pretty quick takeoff roll we rotated a little over half way down the runway(just pass where earlier I had been watching planes takeoff from the end of concourse D). We flew the runway heading for about 5 minutes them made a slight left turn as we climbed towards the bases of the clouds that were covering most of ATL. We had some light turbulence as we climbed through the clouds and once we got on top the flight attendants came through the cabin with a drink service. About half way through the flight I got up and headed back to use the aft lav and someone was using it so the flight attendants said that I could not wait there and needed to return to my seat immediately. The last time I flew US (republic) they did the same thing and made everyone go back to their seats if the lav was occupied. I had someone on the aisle next to me and I didn’t want to make him have to get up an extra two times so I just stood in the aisle for about 5 minutes until it was open. The rest of the flight to PHL went by quick and before long the pilots were announcing our descent and that we should be on the ground within twenty minutes. We made a fast descent down and made two wide turns over the city of Philadelphia as the sun was setting as we got closer to the ground the sky went from sunshine to a nice sunset as we began the last few minutes of the flight. We made one last left turn and were lined up for landing. At 6:47PM we crossed over the threshold of the runway and we landed very hard. It was probably the hardest touchdown I have ever had and the pilots used full reverse and heavy breaking. Once we cleared the runway the pilots came on and said there was a lot of traffic at PHL tonight and that it would take a few minutes to get into the gate. It was not too bad of a wait, and within 10-15 minutes we arrived at gate B7.

This layover was pretty quick, and before long it was time to board the flight to SYR. The flight was full, they also boarded this plane by zone. I boarded right after they started and went to my seat in 18A. On the ATL-PHL flight seat 18A was in the back about four or five rows from the last row. But on this plane since it was only a 170 and the first one was a 175, row 18 was the last row. So when I boarded I headed all the way to the back and towards the end of the boarding some guy sat down on the aisle next to me. Once everyone was seated to we sat for a little bit then pushed back. As we pushed N129HQ ( I flew N129HQ from PHL-ATL in July 2012) pushed back just as we did. It was flying flight 3463 to CVG. It taxied right behind us and took off after we did. Once we pushed back the pilots started the engines and we taxied out made a left turn and taxied past the terminal. We then headed out towards 27L the active runway. We crossed over 27R made a right turn taxied parallel to 27L then made 2 left turns and came back up the way we just came, a couple of planes took off ahead of us including a A330 and a A321 to DEN. We taxied onto the runway and at 9:19PM we began our takeoff roll. It was a longer takeoff roll then the first flight. We climbed out on the runway heading and then made a right turn on course. As we climbed through 10,000 feet and the flight attendants made the announcement about the service a plane passed close to us in the opposite direction, probably descending into PHL. We climbed up to our cruising altitude and the flight attendants came through with a beverage service. This flight went by really fast and before long we were on our final descent into SYR. The flight attendants came through the cabin once to collect trash. We then made a right turn, and we were on base for runway 28. We were on a visual and turned final 5 miles out. The landing was pretty smooth and we rolled down to taxiway Charlie and then taxied to gate 9 on taxi alpha and then echo. Since I was in the last row it took about ten minutes for everyone to deplane then I got off and headed down to bags. My friend was at the airport to see me land. So I met him at bags and once I got my bag we headed down to the area under security in the middle of the airport. I saw my plane and a few other ones that were spending the night. There was a guy there with a kid who liked planes so my friend and I told him we are going to be pilots and then we headed out to where my mom was waiting to pick me up and we saw a couple planes land including a DL MD88 from MSP, MD90 from ATL and AA from ORD. The eagle E145 would be going to ORD the next morning, the same flight I took to ORD a few days earlier. A couple minutes later we left the airport and it was about a ten minute drive home.
