We were taking a vacation to Canada and had decided to visit Montreal, Quebec City & Toronto. We booked a one way ticket with United flying from San Diego – Denver (United Metal) and then connecting a our Air Canada Flight.

The flight from San Diego is one of the first departures each morning due to the San Diego airport noise restrictions. We arrived an hour or so before our flight departed and check in was a quicky automated process, nothing thrilling.
Our United flight this morning departed from Terminal 1, sadly terminal 1 really lacks anything to do when your flying from here and we must have been in line for about 30 minutes just for a coffee. This was the only place open in the Terminal at this time of the morning.

We were called for boarding around 5:55AM , we were flying in United’s economy plus, this was my second time using this product, i had previously flown in on a San Diego – Newark flight in Feb 2013 and really enjoyed the extra leg room and space.

I had seat 7F on this flight and my wife next to me, we were in the front of the economy cabin and we had a nice amount of leg room for the flight.

We were ready for departure around 6:15am and taxed towards the runway, i was listening in to Uniteds channel 9 air traffic control, i think this is a great feature on flights and really enjoy it. A Fedex MD 11 landed as we were taxing.
Air Traffic control told us that as we were the first flight out we would have to wait an additional 5 minutes before we could depart as flights could not yet take off.

Once cleared for departure we had a very smoothy take off and cleared the marine layer at about 800 Ft.

The flight to denver was very smooth and we had a great experience. At one point on our arrival into Denver air traffic control informed the pilots that they were some thunderstorms in the area and we had a big cloud we needed to pass through to make our way to the Peak 2 approach. Our flight and several others behind us decided to go around the cloud to the right, i wish i had got a picture of this.

We arrived into Denver on time and went to make our connecting flight onward to Montreal.

It was safe to say we had arrived at a united hub
