Delta Airlines 1492
Honolulu (HNL) – Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP)
Delta One First Class (Seat 4A)
My flight back from Hawaii was on the same type of plane (Airbus A330-300) that I flew on my way to Hawaii from MSP to HNL.
As mentioned in my previous post, the Delta One first class cabin consists of reverse herringbone lie-flat seats in a 1-2-1 configuration – a good thing as everyone gets direct aisle access. Upon boarding, the flight attendant offered me a choice of pre-departure drinks (orange juice, sparkling wine, mai tais or heineken).
On take off there were nice views flying out of Honolulu and I could even see a bit of the sunset.
The amenities and service were exactly the same as on my flight to Hawaii so I will try not to repeat myself too much here.
My seat had a blanket, pillow, water, Tumi amenity kit (enter our giveaway for a chance to win a Delta One amenity kit), and headphones available for use.
The food selection differed on this flight. Below are photos of the menu:
I ordered the beef fillet as the main course and found that it tasted much better than the main course on my previous first class Delta flight.
This flight was an hour shorter that my MSP-HNL flight but due to strong tailwinds the flight time was reduced another hour. In total, the flight ended up being under 7 hours and felt really short – I almost could have flown economy. Shortly after dinner, I slept for a few hours and woke up just in time for breakfast.
Two choices were available for breakfast- I ordered the vanilla greek yogurt and granola with fresh fruit.
Overall, this was a comfortable flight with a flat bed and a great way to fly back from Hawaii. I think this is one of the best first class seats to Hawaii from the mainland.
