Review: Delta A220 Main Cabin, Dallas to New York
First impressions – the new plane smell certainly was nice. And the interior in general, with its oversized windows, appeared bright and airy.

- First impressions – the new plane smell certainly was nice. And the interior in general, with its oversized windows, appeared bright and airy.
Before moving on to my big award travel boondoggle, I headed out on a smaller trip in April. While the main objective was sampling American's transcontinental First Class, I also tried out the newest domestic airplane. Delta introduced the Airbus A220 (formerly Bombardier Cseries) in February.
Originally, I booked myself on one of the January 31 launch flights from Dallas to New York LaGuardia. Unfortunately, the government shutdown postponed the launch, forcing me to reschedule for later. Delta kindly allowed me to switch to an April flight without a change fee; so, I added it to this longer trip.
Delta certainly likes to hype up the A220 Main Cabin experience. Partially to throw shade at the new "Oasis" interiors from American, I'm sure. But does the A220 provide a meaningfully better experience in deep coach? I set out to find out.
