Have you ever arrived to your gate to find a completely different plane waiting to take you to your destination? Tonight I had a pleasant surprise. When I arrived at the gate, I saw this waiting for us.
Delta Business Elite
For those of you that don’t know, that is a Boeing 767-300ER which is configured with International Business Elite. This means the upgrade list would clear from coach to flat-bed Business Class on a 1.5 hour flight from Orlando.
I cleared at the gate as only 1 of 2 elite members on the upgrade list. Orlando flights are elite light on the weekends.
It was nice to ride in this cabin for the 1.5 hour flight.
But the service was even better. Turns out this was a new flight attendant training flight. So we had trainee flight attendants in different uniforms than normal operating the flight. The service didn’t miss a beat with pre-departure and in-flight service.
This was definitely the shortest flight I’ve taken on an Internationally configured Delta jet in Business Class.
What’s the shortest flight you’ve ever taken in a premium internationally configured plane?
