BACKGROUND:

I booked Delta from Las Vegas to Los Angeles as it had the best-priced flight for the time I wanted to depart compared to all the other airlines. I haven’t flown from Las Vegas to the LA area in a long time, as I normally drive when doing this route.

FLIGHT DETAILS:

Delta Air Lines Flight 1660
Las Vegas (LAS) to Los Angeles (LAX)
Seat: 10C Aisle- Comfort Plus
Aircraft: Airbus A319

SILVER MEDALLION UPGRADE STATS:

I am a lowly Sliver Medallion member on Delta. Shortly after I checked in for the flight around the 24-hour mark before my flight, I got an email that I was “upgraded” to Comfort Plus. Since I was traveling alone, I requested only window and aisle seats. Delta assigned me seat 10C, an aisle seat in the first row of Comfort Plus. There are only a total of 18 Comfort Plus seats on the Delta A319, which comprises 3 rows (10-12).

In terms of First Class upgrade chances, I ended 9/9 on the list.

LAS VEGAS LOUNGE OPTIONS:

My Delta flight was leaving out of Concourse D, and conveniently located in this Concourse is the AMEX Centurion Lounge which I visited on this trip and had a good experience. There is also a Club at LAS, which I visited earlier this year that is accessible with Priority Pass. The Club at LAS was more basic, so if you have access to the AMEX Centurion Lounge I would recommend that one instead.

BOARDING:

Boarding commenced 40 minutes before departure. I arrived 5 minutes after the scheduled boarding time, and they passed my boarding group! I was a bit scared in regards to carry-on space as they were already boarding Main Cabin 3 which is a couple of groups after Comfort Plus. Not sure how they breezed through most of the groups in 5 minutes… So, the lesson learned is to arrive a bit before the boarding time if you want to have your best chances at carry-on space. Thankfully, it all worked out and I was able to find carry-on space above my seat. Phew!

15 minutes before our scheduled departure, boarding was complete and the doors were closed.

THE FLIGHT:

The captain introduced himself and told us that our flight would be 43 minutes in the air. We then left the gate 5 minutes before our scheduled departure.

I was a bit surprised that there wasn’t a bulkhead or curtain separating the First Class and Comfort Plus Cabins. With no separation, the legroom was quite good from row 10. Delta advertises 34 inches of pitch in Comfort Plus on the A319, but I felt like it was even more from row 10. The only thing about row 10 is that you might get bumped from the aisle when passengers are boarding because the aisle gets narrower at this seat since it is the first row where it goes to a 3-3 configuration from a 2-2 configuration in First Class.

They announced that since the flight was so short, there would be no beverage service on the flight. A limited service would have been appreciated, with water perhaps.

The specific plane that I was on was 20 years old, but it seemed newly renovated.

In-Flight Entertainment & Wi-Fi:

There was a seatback screen on every seat, but since I was in the first row of Comfort Plus, the seatback screen was stored inside the armrest.

There was a good selection of movies, TV shows, live TV, and Spotify playlists.

Additionally, there was free Wi-Fi provided for Skymiles members since this was a domestically configured plane. The Wi-Fi was a tad slow, but worked

On the bright side, we touched down about 25 minutes early, and only took about 10 extra minutes to get to the gate. The scheduled duration was 1 hour and 18 minutes, but we ended up getting to the gate about 15 minutes early which was nice.

THE VERDICT:

Overall, I had a pleasant flight aboard the Delta Comfort Plus A319. I liked the refreshed plane, in-flight entertainment, and on-time arrival. Room for improvement could include an abbreviated beverage service.
