DSC_0837 Boarding had just started when I arrived at the gate and the lines were growing but the SkyPriority line was empty and allowed me to board without delay. Once on board, I had no difficulty locating my seat, 1A and noticed that the plane was fuller on this flight than on my outbound leg.

As I was settling in, the flight attendants were offering passengers pre-departure drinks and offering to hang up everyone’s rather heavy overcoats. A Tumi amenity kit was on my seat’s armrest and the pre-departure Champagne, was accompanied by a package of very tasty almonds.


We pushed back eight minutes early, at 10:47 a.m., and were wheels up at 11:00 a.m. Our route took us in a westerly direction towards Belarus, continuing over Poland, Denmark, the British Isles and out onto the vast Atlantic. DSC_0844 We continued over Iceland and Greenland, turning in a southwesterly direction before entering Canadian airspace near Newfoundland. and continued over the Gulf of St. Lawrence, crossing into U.S. airspace over Maine. After passing over much of New England, we began our final descent into JFK, landing 31 minutes early at 2:05 p.m.


I was quite happy to be back in seat 1A after my flight over during which I was in 9A. This is because the foot well in bulkhead seats is far larger than for the others and I found it harder to move around while sleeping in 9A.

Delta One, formerly BusinessElite, seats are 80” long, 21” wide, and extend almost to the full length of the pod when used as a bed. They recline to 180° and are horizontal to the deck when in bed mode.
