Seat Review: Delta Comfort+ on the MD88

I just got back from a quick trip to Atlanta and for the first time this year I got to experience Delta's Comfort+ cabin. Comfort Plus was part of Delta's rebranding of its cabins earlier this year. (Previously known as Economy Comfort) In addition to the name change Delta added a few benefits to these seats. More on that below.

DeltaOne Meal - JFK SkyClub

JFK Experience

Delta recently added a new perk for travelers who are flying on DeltaOne.  DeltaOne is Delta's new name for business class, formerly known as BusinessElite.  If your are on a DeltaOne reservation and happen to be going through JFK you will now be presented with a menu card upon checking into the SkyClub in Terminal 4.  The menu includes a snack/light meal and a glass of wine.  

U.S. Airline Carry On Baggage Sizes

For many travlers there's always a debate about how big is too big for my carry on bag.  I think some fliers don't even know there are rules for carry on bags.  To help simplify things we've assembled the carry on bag dimensions for most of the major U.S. airlines.  If you're flying internationally I highly recommend you check with your airline.  The information in this article is accurate as of the date of this article, but as always check with your airline in advance in the event the rules have changed.  We've linked to all of these airlines on the right side of this page.

Seat Review: 1B on Delta's 717

I recently had a chance to check out one of Delta's new Boeing 717's.  Delta started aquiring these aircraft from Airtran in 2013 and they now fly many of Delta's old DC9 routes.  The 717 is the smallest mainline aircraft in Delta's fleet with 12 seats in First Class, 15 seats in Economy Comfort and 83 seats in Economy.  First is configured in a 2-2 setup and coach is 2-3, similar to the MD80 fleet.

For my flight I was seated in 1B and my companion in 1A.  It was a short flight from St. Louis to Detroit and I think this is the perfect flight for this aircraft.
