I flew on Delta's all-new Airbus A321neo. Its redesigned first class is a huge upgrade in comfort and style.

The Airbus A321neo is a new, more comfortable and more sustainable aircraft to join Delta's fleet.
The aircraft is not only new, but also features a completely redesigned first class seating area.
I flew the A321neo before it was unveiled to the public. I was impressed by its storage and comfort.
Delta is adding a new, more comfortable and sustainable aircraft to its fleet: the 194-seat Airbus A321neo with 20% better fuel efficiency than Delta's current A321ceos.

I flew Delta's new, state-of-the-art A321neo in the upgraded First Class cabin before it was unveiled to the public. It was like this.

I checked in for my flight on the Fly Delta app. I didn't check bags for my quick trip from Atlanta to Boston, but the Delta counter usually makes bag drop quick.

I used my Fly Delta app to get through security, but printing a physical boarding pass at Delta's automated kiosks is easy. On the Wednesday I flew, the site was practically empty.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport - known as ATL - is the busiest airport in the world. The Airplane Train is the easiest way to navigate between its seven halls.

After flying through security thanks to TSA PreCheck, I boarded the plane train that took me to the "T" gates where Delta's new Airbus 321neo would depart.
Jennifer Franklin
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International is increasingly busy as passengers ramp up their travel plans. On this Wednesday afternoon, however, the T-gates were not overcrowded.
Jennifer Franklin
I had a voucher for access to the Delta Sky Club near my gate. With a few minutes before boarding the plane, I stopped for a snack.
Jennifer Franklin
The Delta Sky Club at Atlanta's T-gates featured a variety of original art installations to add visual interest.

On the day of my visit, the Delta Sky Club had a station with a chef who made a refreshing smoothie with frozen acai berries, fresh pineapple, orange juice, and honeydew melon.
Jennifer Franklin
The Sky Club has several Eversys self-service espresso machines that I use to make a cappuccino before my flight.
Jennifer Franklin
I picked up some free magazines from the Sky Club to read on my trip. The flight I was on was scheduled to transfer Delta's new A321neo aircraft from Atlanta, where Delta is headquartered, to Boston, where it would depart on Friday for its first public flight.
Jennifer Franklin
Friendly Delta flight attendants, dressed in their signature Zac Posen-designed uniforms, welcomed me to the flight.
Jennifer Franklin
I had 3A and B to myself for this flight and the upgrades to first class seating were immediately apparent. The spacious seats feature "wings" on the backrest to provide additional privacy from your first-class neighbors.
