The Delta Boxing Day Sale: LGA-ATL and Terminal D at LaGuardia

Delta 1647
New York (LGA) to Atlanta (ATL)
11:00 – 1:38 PM, 2:38 duration
First  Class – 3C
Food – Lunch
Equipment: McDonnell Douglas MD-88

I tried to do a Same Day Confirm the day before, but since my ATL-LAX was booked into C, it was impossible to change the flights. I asked for advice on the Delta forum, @DeltaAssist but no go, so I was stuck with my original routing.

So it’s a cold January Saturday morning and I’m on my usual Q72 bus to LaGuardia, since I board the bus at the first stop, I have a seat for the quick 25 minute ride till I reach Terminal D. Seems like construction is still ongoing and after a short walk, I was able to find the PreCheck line. A few minutes later, I’m in the SkyClub.

Boarding started at 10:25 and a mini free for all started when “People who need additional time” were allowed to board before first. I’m OK with wheelchairs boarding early and other legitimate cases. But several people with 5 year olds boarded just to get the overhead space.

I’m used to MadDogs, but the 88 is a rare one for me. All the seats had a mini bottle of water (nice touch) and the FA came around offering PDBs! (a great plus), had a Coke Zero and we were off


The Sandwich was ok, a bit dry but on a hub to hub flight with minimal competition, and it wasn’t bad. Now the fruit salad, while it looked good, was simply horrible, tasted like a breakfast leftover. The cake came with a little surprise!

Chocolate HAIR Cake anyone

Chocolate HAIR Cake anyone?

Several Jack and Coke Zeros later we landed in ATL.
