If you have some facts/evidence to suggest otherwise, please do share! I'm genuinely curious. Personal credentials are far less compelling to me.

Good one! I also assumed safety video, but couldn't come up with anything to fit those 3 letters

I flew in first on the A220 roundtrip between LGA and DFW earlier this week. IFE already broken in more than one seat in Row 1. Glad I was in Row 2.

That didn't last long!

N107DU arrived in ATL.

Beautiful ship. Tops. Something really special, perhaps tops in the world.

It's also bookable for SJC - SLC. IIRC, SEA will not be an A220 base right now, but SLC will be.
SJC ORD LDR is online now

Thereís word of the 717s moving east as the the mad dogs retire. The A220 sounds like a great replacement and a major a/c upgrade especially for DLís west Coast ops

A220 has the buggiest IFE in the fleet. Love the plane, though. That is all.

I flew two flights two far where the IFE and WIFI were INOP. Pretty unusual IME.

Looks like I'll finally have the chance to catch one of these in a couple of weeks on DFW - LGA. Cleared into C+ at booking just now and looks like I can either select 10C or 12C, strong views on one vs. the other?

Presumably 10C underseat storage is a bit off because of the "2" FC going to "3" C+ as la the 717?

May ultimately not matter since F is only 1/12 less than 10 days out though I know some of this thread tout C+ > F on the A220

Los Angeles – Austin 21DEC19 – 02JAN20 1 daily
Los Angeles – Seattle 21DEC19 – 02JAN20 3 daily
San Francisco – Salt Lake City eff 06JAN20 4 daily
Seattle – Salt Lake City eff 06JAN20 1 daily
Seattle – San Francisco eff 06JAN20 6 daily

I believe that means all SFO-SLC/SEA flights. That's a nice upgrade
