We had a nice evening departure planned for our flights to Seattle, We were going to be flying Delta airlines for the first time via Salt Lake City. I have a friend who works at the Delta desk in San Diego airport so we had our fingers crossed for some domestic first upgrades.

The flight was due to depart at 6:20pm , check in was very easy as we had already checked in online and selected our seats, we had no bags to drop and to our surprise we had been lucky enough to be upgraded to First on both legs of our flights.

Boarding Passes


Once we had checked in we headed to the United Lounge as we had some old club passes we wanted to use.
Now here is the fun part, the United lounge is located in Terminal 1, but Delta departs from Terminal 2, oh well we thought we had plenty of time to spare , lets go through security to the United Lounge and then leave an hour before departure to allow plenty of time to walk from Terminal 1 to 2 and clear security again.

We left the United lounge and headed to terminal 2, we cleared security again and arrived at our gate with 15 minutes to spare.
I spoke with the lady at the United lounge and she informed come that come September 2013 the United lounge would be moved to Terminal 2.


Our Plane

Boarding was done quickly and efficiently and the Delta gate agents were very friendly, This A319 had a first class Config of 2 x 2

We had the Bulk head seats in the first class cabin, but the leg room was still great. I ended up sitting in seat 1D as I switched seats with my wife as I prefer the window.


Before departure we were given our choice of welcome drink, sadly there would be no food on this flight. I went for a Gin & Tonic and it arrived before we departed.

Taxing to Runway

The flight departed on our time and after take off we were offered another drink, I went for Another Gin & Tonic as this was a short flight.


The Entire flight was very smooth and arrived on time, I snapped a few pictures from the window.


Arriving Into Salt Lake City

We made our connection to Seattle and had a great trip , sadly I did not take a single photo on our next flight, but go easy on me this is my first trip report.
