Part 1 of this Trip-

I made my way down the long distance of moving walkways to the regional terminal A/B. The lines for the food court was long which only gave me time to wait for my next flight which was about to board when I arrived at the gate.

I waited about 5-10 minutes until boarding commenced.

Quick and a very short flight just over 30 minuteís wheels up/down.

INFLIGHT-We headed WSW over the Minnesota farmlands with miles of crop rotations. I didnít like the positioning of the windows next to the seats as they are small and I had to stretch out to take pictures or see out the window.

We made the SW downwind approach to runway 21


I made my way to the Hertz counter to up my rental car. Below is the scenic drive from Sioux Falls, SD-Marshall, MN


The service on both Delta flights were standard as usual. The only caveat with Deltaís offering is that the leather seats are really uncomfortable for me.

Thanks for reading my trip report and I hope you enjoyed it. Next segement of this trip will be FSD-MSP-LAX-SAN. Any comments, questions, and feedback are encouraged,

Regards, Mike
