My great 30 Plus Teams Tour of Las Vegas is over and I’m returning home to New York’s JFK .
I’m NOT a happy camper after a week in Las Vegas .
I used to work for Delta and fly them from time to time .
I had an idea of what their planes are like.
Or I thought I did.
At Las Vegas McCarron International Airport , you have to make sure that you have your boarding pass BEFORE you get on line.
If you have bags to check, pay before you get there, because they DON’T take cash.
There are machines in the airport where you can buy a card to pay for your checked baggage , but you pay $5 more for it.
The agent that checked me in told me a way to get around paying extra for a prepaid card and how to keep my money.
It’s called consolidation .
Put my handbag in one bag so that I only have a personal item and a carry on.
It worked as my carryon bag fit in the overhead bin and the personal item did fit under my seat, which had a blanket , still wrapped in plastic.
I relaxed on the flight even though as usual going through good old TSA, was always an adventure.
As I settled in my seat, I watched the safety feature.
I have to give Delta major props for having one of the most innovative safety videos .
Not only do they tell you what to do and what not to do, the flight attendants are all wearing Delta uniforms from all the years that Delta has been flying.
I don’t know who in Atlanta thought of this or how they found all of these uniforms, but it was brilliant , just saying .
I was able to take out my headphones and either watch tv, listen to music, track the flight, which I did quite often, or see a movie.
As I didn’t like any of the movies or music, I watched some tv.
Being the sports diva that I am , yes I did watch some of the shows on ESPN.
I can’t tell you about the beverages or food served on the flight, nor can I tell you if my flight had a lot of turbulence .
I have no idea on either.
After the takeoff, I settled into the middle seat and went to sleep.
I didn’t wake up until the flight was landing at JFK .
Yeah, I was THAT tired.
As much as I was unhappy about leaving Las Vegas , it was good to come home and just jump on my bed with my comfy pillow and my even comfy stuffed animals.
Thank you for getting me home safely , Delta .
