United Airlines 508
Seattle (SEA) – San Francisco (SFO)
Airbus A320
02 May 2014

After spending around an hour in the lounge, I headed to the departure gate where the beautiful A320 was waiting. I think that by far my favourite short-medium haul aircraft is the A320, for some reason I find it the best in style and comfort.

As I took my seat, the lead flight attendant offered me a pre-departure beverage.

After 10 minutes of taxiing, we made it to Runway 16C and within minutes we were airborne.

Overall it was a regular day in Seattle, no sun and no rain, just clouds.

After about ten minutes, the seatbelt sign came off and the crew started to take drink orders. Considering the flight is around an hour and thirty minutes, they offered snacks and no meal was provided.

Legroom was the standard, as in all United domestic first class flights.

The ladies in 1A and 1C would not stop talking. Literally they talked from the moment they boarded to the moment they got off of the aircraft, they talked about everything. Everything you could think of. The flight attendants were constantly refilling their wine, or whatever they ordered 🙂

I spent the short ride working on my laptop as this was one of United’s A320 with Wi-Fi. The cost was $6.99 for the one hour and a half, which I find a little high.

Shortly after sunset, we began to land in San Francisco.

Perhaps my iPhone cannot capture the lights in San Francisco, but they are amazing to watch, especially at night.
