Delta One Westin In Flight bedding set was at my seat. This included an 18×22” EnviroLoft-filled pillow and a 48×81” quilted comforter. A blue Tumi amenity kit, filled with the usual goodies including the excellent Tumi eyeshade and striped socks, was provided as well.

IN-FLIGHT SERVICE

Having not slept much on the flight from Kona (it was on a 737-900 with standard domestic first-class seats despite it being a longer flight than LAX-JFK), I wasn’t really sure whether I was going to have breakfast or just try to sleep but, as it always seems to happen, I got hungry as soon as the purser offered breakfast.

The first course consisted of a gravlax appetizer and fresh fruit accompanied by yoghurt. I didn’t pay terribly much attention to the options for the main course, which included scrambled eggs, and chose the quiche, which unfortunately bordered on the inedible. Delta used to do breakfast much better than this and I have fond memories of yummy apple ricotta crêpes on this flight as recently as a few years ago.

Coffee and apple juice rounded out the meal and then it was time to catch up on the sleep I didn’t get on the first leg after first taking a few photos of the beautiful snow-capped peaks we were flying over. As always, the Westin bedding was great and I was able to get a good three to four hours sleep before arrival.

ARRIVAL

We docked at the gate at John F. Kennedy International Airport a mere ten minutes late despite the fact that Delta had been kind enough to hold the plane for what must have felt like an eternity to the other passengers. After being last on, we were also first off the aircraft and curbside within minutes

BOTTOM LINE

Loyalty is a two-way street. Delta has demonstrated its loyalty to me as a passenger repeatedly and it was good to know that the airline would actually hold a flight for me when I was running late, admittedly due to a Delta issue at the outbound station. What I noticed of the service was quite good (I was admittedly quite tired) and aside from the inedible quiche, the rest went quite well.
