Reviews / Airline

I flew Delta Air Lines’ Comfort+ cabin on a recent trip to Madrid (MAD). Located in the first few rows of the aircraft’s main cabin, Comfort+ offers passengers special perks including priority boarding, dedicated overhead bin space and extra legroom.


I was one of the first passengers in the priority section to board and quickly made my way to my aisle seat. The cabin had a 2-3-2 configuration and I was seated in the middle section, next to a couple. I put my suitcase in the dedicated overhead bin and settled in for the flight.


The temperature in the cabin was perfect and I was comfortable using the provided blanket and pillow. Not long after take-off, flight attendants came through with hot towels and a food menu. Meals consisted of lunch, a snack and a light meal just before landing. I opted for chicken with risotto for lunch. Airline food gets a bad rap, but I thought Delta’s offerings were flavorful.


The flight was just less than nine hours, so I wanted to get some sleep and watch a couple movies. There were plenty of entertainment options to choose from. I decided on Phantom Thread, Lady Bird and The Commuter.


Unfortunately, I was seated behind a mother and adult daughter who complained to flight attendants, dropped trash, got in and out of their seats and frequently reclined their seats for the majority of the flight. I was happy they were not on the next leg of my trip.


Other than the annoying seatmates, I enjoyed my experience in Comfort+ and would recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a main cabin upgrade.

Lantern Festivals

Lantern festivals are sweeping the nation. Lanterns originated in China, but made their way across the world. Lantern lights are mesmerizing when they light up the night sky. I always think of the scene in the Disney movie Tangled, where the whole town sends lanterns up to the sky in honor of the missing princess and the entire sky is covered with lanterns. Travel around the world to see the best lantern festivals.
