          His not wanting to go on N152DL may have something to do with the fact that that plane has an extra pair of exit doors toward the front of the cabin.

              I was talking about the configuration of the plane, figuring there would be a few less BE seats...guess that really doesn't make a difference though.

                    hello,
                    i am terribly sorry about the delay this was because my PC crashed and then i did this trip itself and i had to finish my trip to London

                    i woke up at 5:15

                    well before leaving my house i looked online and saw that the arriving flight (DL 124) was 30 mins early (7:55 i.o 8:30)

                    we left our house at 6:30 and 1 hour later whe arrived in BRU

                    BRU haves two check in halls the main hall (rows 1-10) and the charter hall (11-13)
                    DL check in was today in row 11
                    before entering the charter hall whe met a big line one minute later i looked to how long this line was

                    actually this big line was for COs flight to EWR leaving at 9:35 so there where 8 empty lines for DLs to flights (JFK at 11:10,ATL at 10:35) after being asked the usual questions i checked in i always liked the DL staff at BRU and today there was no exeption (if there is any DL BRU staff reading this keep it up like that)
                    here is a conversation between the check in lady and me

                    me: hello
                    check in lady (CIL):good-morning
                    me: is the flight full today
                    CIL: yes it is
                    Me: is this your new position here i.o row 6
                    CIL: whe are only sitting here because whe had some problems back there it could be possible that whe are sitting back there tomorrow
                    Me: ok
                    CIL: could you fill in right here who is picking you up in ATL today and here is an entry-card
                    Me: thank you
                    CIL: you have and aisle seat you are sure you want sit there
                    Me: yes,please I love to move around on the plane during the flight
                    CIL: ok I will give you your pre-assinged seat, just go back to the ticketing desk and they will give you your BP,thank you for flying DL hope you enjoy your flight
                    Me: I sure will,thank you and a happy new year
                    CIL: youre welcome, the same for you

                    So off whe went to the ticketing desk and the BGS desk
                    It was 8:35 by then and whe went to thru passport control
                    And went shopping I could see from far that my A/C had the old colours

                    DL uses the BA lounge in BRU so we went there for 20mins

                    At 9:10 we went thru security and I went planespotting I saw

                    Euro Atlantic airways L1011-500 CS-….
                    SN A330-300 OO-SFO/SFN to Africa
                    TUI B737-800 OO-VAS to Antalya
                    Then I approached my planes tail number it had 4 digits and I feared that it was N1602 or N1201P but after that I noticed it was N394DL
                    At 9:20 we past thru the US flights security after that I saw

                    Delta 2xB767-300ER (N394DL,N175DN) to ATL and JFK
                    AA 2x B767-300ER to ORD and JFK
                    CO B767-400 to EWR

                    At 9:35 I preboarded the plane

                    And after that I received another ice cream 30 mins later I chatted with another F/A for about 45 mins. After that we climbed up to FL 350 and they came around again with the Afternoon snack

                      @AirFranceFan: How is Delta Air Lines viewed in Europe, or more specifically Belgium? Do Europeans prefer to fly European Airlines to the US or do they like american airlines?

                        DL is seen as a OK airline in Belguim but with its 2 ATL and JFK flights people can go easy to other US cities because there are limited services from BRU

                          hello,
                          after a short vacation and I while I was there I was a little bit sick to

                          i woke up at 5:00 (I stayed on Belguim time)

                          I washed and packed my stuff then (this was at 9:30 only)

                          I left my grandparents house at 11:50 on the way over there (13:30) I got me some vegetable soup and at 14:30 we arrived in ATL

                          The BE line was rather short (compared to the Y line wich was at least a 40 min wait

                          The lady who checked me in was robotic and worked about 25 mins on me ( ok the best ground staff I ever met is the [email protected])

                          After that we went to the E concourse where the fun began ( indeed I went spotting) and I saw

                          Lufthansa D-AIGS A343 to FRA
                          KLM PH-BZE B763 to AMS
                          DL N1607B,N175DN,N180DN B763ER to CVG,MUC,STR,…
                          DL N862DA,N867DA,N865DA to LGW and FRA
                          Then I went to the BE lounge wich was crowded today after that I went spotting again

                          AF: F-GLZA A343 to CDG
                          DL: N861DA to CDG
                          DL: N156DL,N152DL,N171DN,N1604R to MAN,ZRH,AMS,BRU
