This trip was flawless. I arrived at TRI about an hour before my flight, reprinted my boarding pass at the kiosk, and passed quickly through security. I spent about 15 minutes in the TRI Business Center, aka our lounge, except without food. Apparently most of the power outlets in there are not operational anymore, as I tried three cubicles, no go.
We boarded quickly, pushed back about 10 minutes early, and were airborne about five minutes early. In-flight service was by request only. We landed at 7:01 pm, 19 minutes earlier than scheduled, which gave me a quick 15 minutes in the Delta Sky Club in Concourse B at CVG. My snacks included a glass of Chardonnay, chicken salad, chickpea salad with yogurt drizzle, and mixed nuts.
When I arrived at my gate, the plane was already boarding. When I arrived at my seat, there was a pillow, blanket, and mini bottle of Dasani. The flight attendant took my pre-departure drink order and I had an Amstel Light.
We pushed back early and departed about 10 minutes past scheduled departure. In-flight services consisted of a full beverage and snack basket service and Delta television, which included “How I Met Your Mother,” “Big Bang Theory,” and “Delta Destinations.” The snack basket contained Twix® bars, Biscoff cookies, Pretzel Crisps®, and peanuts. I had two of Delta’s signature margaritas made with tequila and Rande Gerber Midnight Bar Collection Mix. We landed at 9:37 pm, 28 minutes early, which might be a record into LaGuardia!
