The Delta One Experience wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be, but it was still pretty awesome. After 15 days on board the Star Princess, we decided to trade in some miles and upgrade our flight back to the East Coast; Los Angeles to New York City.
The pros were the private check in, the on board food, the private space with fully lay down seats, and the extra amenities in the form of over the ear headphones and a tumi toiletries bag.
The cons were that the check in dude seemed pretty jaded about life in general, the on board flight attendant to passenger ratio seemed off (in a bad way), and I felt as though the attendants were somewhat uninterested and unavailable for simple requests like water. That’s partially because it was an overnight flight and also because there were a lot more passengers to tend to.

The check in area for DeltaOne…
The staggered seating is great if you end up with one of the inside seats that is against the window. Otherwise, you have to lean over a table to see out the window and if you’re closer to the aisle, you get bumped into a lot more. Boo scored the lucky window seat for this flight… 😉
