With the government shutdown temporarily ended, Delta was finally able to get approval for their new Airbus A220’s to take flight. Due to the delay, the release date was pushed from it’s original date of January 31st to February 7th, 2019. I’ve been following this fleet addition for quite some time now, and I originally thought getting on the inaugural flight wasn’t going to be possible for me. I figured the plane itself would go on “the list” and I’d get to it eventually. However, the delay combined with a few incidents of sheer luck allowed me to book it as a last-minute trip. I’ll be flying up to LaGuardia the day before (on a Delta A319), and taking the LaGuardia to DFW route first thing the morning of the 7th. This will be the first trip for the A220 and the first official trip for In The Air, so it should be pretty special. I’m looking forward to experiencing that new plane smell and all of the celebratory fanfare!
Stay tuned for the first video!
