According to the various bloggers it does but I can't find a DL press release that includes any mention of the A223 or has any pictures to confirm

All the A220s in the video are of the -100 series...not a single shot of the first delivered -300, N302DU, mentioned throughout the video!

Its hard to get footage of a plane that's not in service. The main content of the video is the narration of the info where the videos are just meant to be B roll

If that was the case the mods would move it to the correct one.

I don't think the OP was calling out your thread. I assume they posted in this thread by accident and deleted with a request to have their entry removed from this thread

I mean yeah sure I could have flown to ATL and gotten a video but I live and work in MI and had to work that night. Also one landing video would not have been enough B roll for the whole video. So kind of not worth the effort

Showing a video of an A220 landing while narrating that "the -300 landed at ATL" without noting it, is deceptive (I suspect that's not a random coincidence either, it's likely intentionally deceptive). Showing a video of the wrong cabin while you describe the -300 cabin is also deceptive. Lots of information in the video, but it's hard to know which of that information is true and which isn't.

Well that's your opinion. Again, back to my original statement, the videos in the back ground are just B-roll where the main content of this video is the information being narrated. It would be really boring if it was just a blank screen since no one has any footage of this aircraft. Even if they did, I am not one of those youtubers that just goes around stealing and re-uploading other peoples content. Also showing a -100 cabin while talking about how Deltas A220 (-100&-300) have the most spacious cabin in the fleet and have a 2-3 config is not deceptive. I'll tell you the same thing I tell everyone that doesnt like the way I do things in AVNews or cabin videos... If you dont like it, go out, put in the time, get the footage, and make your own if you think your way is better

1.5 hours? They must have taken the scenic route. Especially foolish to waste so much fuel when Delta is bleeding billions.
