Flying A Delta Domestic Lie Flat Bed in Oct

At the beginning of the year, I booked my amazing upcoming trip to Africa and the Middle East. My flights include first class in British Airway and Emirates, as well as business class on Qatar, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways. My flight to and from my international starting and finishing points had yet to be booked.

The reason those flights remained open ended for me was that at the time I was aware that we may be moving over the summer. I had a fairly good idea where that would be, but since I wasn't 100% positive, those flights were left unbooked. That is until today... well one of them at least.

I've been keeping up on flights to Atlanta to start, as well as return flights from LAX after I return from Dubai. While looking over flights, I noticed something I hadn't previously seen. Legs flown from LAX to ATL are often flown on 767 aircraft. My immediate question was, do they fly lie flats to Atlanta like they do to JFK? That was in fact the case, so I took advantage of the ticket and booked a lie flat seat from Los Angeles back to Atlanta where I'll connect back to Greenville.

I was not expecting to grab a cross country redeye lie flat on my return. It will be another review I'll be able to provide on a trip that will be loaded with reviews, photos, lie flat seats, and fun. I'm really excited to get back in the air after quite a long hiatus on the ground. My first domestic flight upon my return will be on a lie flat transcon aircraft. I cannot wait to give this seat a try. It was a bit of a surprise, but it's a seat that I've been wanting to try for a little while now... only question is... do they have amenity kits on the LAX - ATL route? 

We shall see.
