It astounds me still that there’s that much of a market of air travel between ATL and CLT. What is it, like 4 hours? I guess growing up in the RURAL south and having to drive 3 hours to the airport will skew how far is too far to drive.

The OP was about a flight from Charlotte to Salt Lake City, a bit more than 3 hours drive.

That’s what I get for reading posts before my first cup of coffee. I read CLT, for some reason. SORRY!

Ummmmmm… you DID read CLT! :wink:
Seems you somehow confused SLC with ATL. Maybe the “ALT” in the word SALT??

LOL! Ok, ok, I’m not gonna post until at least my FIFTH cup of coffee. Today just wasn’t my day! I guess when I see Delta, I think Atlanta. But no matter what it was, I posted without reading carefully. Maybe I’ll just go take a nap today

Looks like I had a brain farty blonde moment! Well, actually two of them. but HEY! It’s FRIDAY!

Why do so many people, especially young ones* consider it to be an “upgrade” when a route gets a larger aircraft, especially of the same time (e.g., in this case, a narrow bodied aircraft)?

Just because it’s a bigger aircraft doesn’t mean it’s a better (“upgraded”) aircraft. The 737-800 and the 757-200 are both narrow bodied aircraft. There’s probably no better setting on the 757 than on the 737. The seat and aisle widths are more than likely the same. All you have, is a longer aircraft seating more people meaning more it takes longer for those at the rear of the aircraft to get off.

Yes, there’s more first class seats but that doesn’t mean it’s a better aircraft.

*Young ones: early twenties and younger. I subscribe to a couple of spotters sites and, for the most part, the active members are young. They all think it’s awful that an airline would even consider flying anything that doesn’t seat at least 140 people.

The 752 has 3 lavatories and 156 seats in coach. The 738 has only 2 lavs for 128 coach pax. The 752 has a a lower pax to lav ratio, and in my opinion WOULD be an upgrade :smiley:

Hadn’t thought about that side of the equation.

out of 8 or so flights on the clt-atl their is actually one 757 on one of those flights too atm :slight_smile:

First part I understand: Out of 8 or so flightr between CLT and ATL, there is one that is a 757.

Unable to decode “on one of those flights too atm”
