Another set of flights, another round of delays. It would seem like I simply cannot catch a break within the USA flights!

Starting off with what should've been a flight on the CRJ-700, a type that remains elusive to me, still: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1387183
Video trip report: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75tzh7fgbgg&feature=youtu.be

And then on to what was MSP-BOS-JFK on the A319, later changed to MSP-JFK on a MD-88 (my first on the type), later turned to naught: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1388095

Somehow, the images are not coming up for me. I guess I am really late into reading your lovely TRs. However, post- the new era on CollegeAviator's videos (lovely!), one does not miss that much on the traditional TRs if one stays tuned to the video channel.
GFK-MSP: interesting re-routing. CR7 bummer. SEQ1 is always exciting!
The SkyWest trip looks quite nice and uneventful, the way flights are supposed to be. However, you have given some spoilers...let us see how they turn out to be!
MSP-JFK: I would love to explore Concourse D with the SkyDeck. I have of late being exploring airports more, and enjoyed what KIX has to offer, by the way. Free Pizza: interesting, but most passengers sent them back? Hmm...
The LGA part was quite nice, coming from DL. In the 1960s, LGA was the busiest airport in the world. I was there in 2008, and no trips have happened after that. Yes, I agree with you that LGA is a bit run-down! DL411 on the way, and the confusion...I can relate to some of these delay-related alternates that I have experienced.
You got a rather nasty person beside you...I have experienced many such people, with similar situations!
Thank you for two lovely TRs, once again.
Cheers, Sumantra.

Thanks for sharing this with us, there seems to be an issue with the pictures on the TR. But the 4K video version more than made up for it, awesome inflight views, especially the sunset and not to forget the spotting in MSP! I loved the Icelandair B767.

Bad luck on missing the MD88, though it looks like you had the chance to fly in one recently. The MD-90 is a wonderful aircraft!
