For today's video, here is a full flight experience on board Delta Airlines' Boeing 717 from Newark to Atlanta!
This flight was Delta Airlines Flight 2453 DAL2453/DL2453 with service to Hartsfield Jackson International Airport (KATL/ATL) from Newark Liberty International Airport (KEWR/EWR).
During the video, I was sitting in Seat 23E.
FLIGHT EXPERIENCE :
Information about Delta Airlines : Delta Airlines is one of the "big 3" carriers of the United States, and serves many destinations in the world internationally with a large variety of aircraft. Delta's fares are usually low cost and they offer good in-flight entertainment most of the time. The legroom is also good on most of their airplanes.
Seats : Delta has the usual First Class and Economy Class. They offer a section called Economy Comfort which is located in the coach cabin, which has better legroom and more boarding time. Find out more about Economy Comfort on Delta's website : http://bit.ly/PUkkBv
The seat configuration of Delta's Boeing 717-200's is 2 x 3.
Delta's 717 seats are comfortable, soft and have nice legroom. The recline is also pretty good for a plane like this. Find the seat information here at Delta's site : http://bit.ly/1G48wTw
Delta offers USB and power ports onboard the plane throughout the ENTIRE cabin for FREE!
Food/Beverage : Delta uses the standard carts to haul food and drinks around the aisles of the airplane. They offer complimentary Coca Cola beverages and 3 choices of free snacks, which include mini pretzels, cinnamon cookies and peanuts. Delta pours the drink into the a plastic cup.

Flight Attendants : The flight attendants on board this flight were excellent, very accommodating and always had a smile on their faces - I can tell that they enjoyed their jobs and loved to help others! Out of my several Delta flights, all of the flight attendants were great.
Turbulence : There was none during this flight, a very smooth ride.
Delays : We were on schedule and arrived early on this flight! Good job to Delta for no delays 🙂
In-Flight Entertainment : On this flight, there were no Personal TV's or any AVOD entertainment - the 717 fleet is not equipped with these because they are used for short haul routes. The entertainment included the magazines...and looking out the window 😉 Just kidding...there is also On-Demand audio streaming in all classes of the 717. There is also gogo in-flight WiFi available for purchase at a low price.
Baggage Costs : I did not choose to check in any bags, I put my luggage in the overhead compartments. If I did check a bag, it would have to weigh under 50 lbs and not exceed over 62 inches in total dimensions (length + width + height). And of course, you are allowed one personal item and one carry-on item for free! Anyways, please check out this link for more info on Delta's baggage policies : http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/baggage.html
Overall, Delta Airlines is the best out of the three major US carriers in my opinion. Usually, you can't go wrong with them unless there is a major problem. With the low prices and all the amenities you receive for free, Delta is always worth it!
