Now where do I even start!
As unfortunate as it is, my trip reports are all quite delayed, but after several mundane USA domestic flights (DL JFK-MSP-GFK, UA FAR-ORD-EWR vv) it was time to go international. Several flights happened during this trip, new countries were visited, new airlines were tried out, interesting planes on flights were flown on....

Starting off with an Envoy Air/American Eagle ERJ-175, my anxiety is tested thanks to past experiences. I needed this flight to make it on time in order to catch my connection onwards.

This is a Fargo (ND) to Dallas (TX) flight, one of 2 daily flights on the relatively new sector:

BONUS: Air Force One, and the F-16 Thunderbirds! Smile



Look, it's me flying a plane!

Part 2 puts me on a Boeing 777-200ER of American Airlines following a nervous 45 minute layover at Dallas. I made it, and with a lot of time to spare. I was quite impressed by the hard product, and I will say this put's AA in a great spot against the MEB3 to compete against on the international scale. Soft product is always an unknown... but anyway, I enjoyed my time on this quick hope to Miami:

Despite logging my first American Airlines wide body flight in the previous part, part 3 is where things get serious. The Turkish Airlines B777-300ER from Miami to Istanbul! Barring the one strange breakfast, I loved everything about this flight: dinner, IFE, seat, empty seat, legroom, etc (who doesn't love 3-3-3 in Economy on a 777!)... I knew Istanbul Ataturk is/was a bit of a sh*! show, but little did I know I was in for a tough layover, a contrast to the flight that was...
