    I want to thank you for flying Delta and everyone else for their positive comments. I've been an aircraft mechanic at Delta for over 35 years. Delta has provided me and my family with a great life all of these years. So I deeply appreciate your comments! And concerning us Aircraft mechanics that work on the planes everyone flies. Our motto is, would we put our family on that aircraft when we sign off the Airworthiness release? Trust me on this, we work and live by that motto everyday and everytime we touch an aircraft to repair anything on it!!! And we have as aircraft mechanics the power of God when it comes to that plane leaving the gate. We can ground that aircraft without any consequences from management. Management is behind us all the way. That's why I love working at Delta! Safety is job #1 and is never questioned.

    Because I live near a small Delta hub, I fly Delta almost exclusively. Seeing you do these comparisons helps me realize I'm not missing out on anything. I can fly from SLC to almost anywhere with one or two stops - so I don't see me switching,. It would be an interesting VLOG for you to compare the different FF programs for Alaska, Southwest, American, Delta, and United. I am a loyal Delta person and will hit 2M miles on my next flight - the Delta loyalty program is definitely another factor in choosing who to fly.

    Jeb, to be fair and transparent, you may want to consider building an itinerary that has you going from JFK to LAX or Vice-versa leaving in the morning on three different days with those three different airlines. By doing this, you give yourself and these three airlines comparable comparisons. JFK-LAX on Delta day one, LAX-JFK on AA, day two, and EWR-LAX on United day three. Now you will really get a true comparison of the three airlines and the service level’s. Well done video!

    To be fair, your AA flight is the only flight that represents AA's direction. United will start refurbishing their narrowbodies with IFEs once the chip shortage is over and as for Delta, their 737-800s are the only ones with that old seat design that causes problems for storage. All of their other fleets have a different seat design.

      These US carrier 1st class are similar to international airlines Economy Premium class.
      It would def not even come close to what is done over the Atlantic. They’re far behind. Not because they can’t pull out some amazing products. It’s because (to my opinion), the expensive for such high end products on US market doesn’t necessarily answer a demand worth the cost. US consumers prefer efficiency. As long as it does the job well!
      Overseas, the flagship goes beyond efficiency.

I can't appreciate the two of you enough. This idea was a real challenge considering the problems plaguing the airline industry post pandemic but you guys executed it beautifully. Kudos!

    Luckily you guys got to have an updated 737-800 on Delta. I flew LGA-FLL-LGA on Oct 5-6th and both times the 800 was the old school IFE that you can barely view anything. They outfitted both of these planes with the new Wifi system so I was able to stream, but that cost is now $25 for the fastest service.

      The Wifi depends on if you're on a plane with viasat or with the older gogo wifi. Right now to my knowledge most planes still have gogo, the only planetype with all viasat wifi is the A321s.
      Personally I was a big fan with FLL-LGA was A319s and A320s as those cabins are quite nice for such an old type (all of DLs A319s and A320s are Ex-NWA and some are almost 30 years old).

    Of those three airlines I have only flown 1st class on AA. They have a direct flight from where I live to back home. The flight attendants have always been so nice. I don’t mind there not being a screen on the seat back because I prefer my iPad. The case I have has a stand that fits nicely in the slots on the seat in front of me. I like the warm mixed nuts and it’s even better when they have the cheese and grapes. It was very interesting to see what the other airlines were like. I enjoyed the video very much.

    I took Delta on a round trip from JFK to LAX. I found the first class on that trip included access to their lounges in both airports -- where I was very pleased with the breakfast offerings, as well as the lie flat seats. Although at LAX getting from the lounge to the gate involved a long walk, and a bus ride, and then more walking. The folks who checked me into the lounge told me to allow 20 minutes, and it took me a minute or two longer than that.

    Yes, the rumors of lounge access to first class tickets for domestic flights got me. We bought first class domestic seats for the first time.

That sucks, cause there is no way we would ever be able to afford international first class tickets. Lol

    I guess it depends on the flight. In September, (my first flight since before covid), I flew first class United (DEN to IAH), was on a 777-200 with flat bed seats, pitch 78, sparkling white wine served before take-off. Pre-ordered lunch, which was hot and good, (not great). The video screens were big but had to be because they were far away. I didn't see the flight attendants too often, but enough that I didn't lack for anything. I especially liked the app that followed my checked luggage from check-in through unloading and loading at connections and told me when it got to the carousel, (and its #), where I could pick it up. That was new to me, and with a tight connection I was glad to know the luggage made the plane.

    Great video. This is a good comparison of long haul domestic but to rank the three airlines accurately, you’d need to see how the first class experience scales down on the regional flights. There’s a much wider difference when you look at how consistent and premium the experience is from a regional flight all the way up to international.

    Though it's really hard to judge an airline by flying just one route at different times, but I agree Delta is number one. I fly UA (as 1K) most of the time and I've experienced over the years the higher level of commitment by Delta staff to their customers.

    Last week I was lucky to fly on one of Delta’s brand new A321neos with their new domestic first class. If they had flown in that seat, Delta would have been even further ahead and I assume they would have easily had the best seat.

    Transfers at ORD between UA and AA are a breeze as Terminals 1, 2, 3 are all connected behind security. Delta just moved to T5 so it now involves moving on the light rail and leaving the secure area.

    Gotta wonder if United was the dinner flight instead of the breakfast flight if they would have pulled out the win in the Food category and then the overall win/tie. skipping the lounge access, i think what this video showcases is service can be spotty depending on the crew, route, plane type and length of flight. But when you put it all together, they all pretty much offer similar experiences. Great video - enjoyed this!

    United has a total of over 700 planes on order and will start putting one into service every 4 days in 2023. They are also in the process of retrofitting the entire fleet with a new all interior and top of the line IFE. Major upgrades paired with historic aircraft orders is going to push United ahead. Will be interesting to see the comparison between Delta and United once this is all completed.

    Delta 1st from PUJ to ATL...fantastic service. The second time I tried Delta 1st....we were delayed due to mechanical issues, then the flight attendants didn't acknowledge me or serve me without verifying my boarding pass which has never happened before(I paid for 1st class at time of booking a week prior), then on the connecting flight they bumped me to row 36 and no one was willing to address it (asked the gate agent, flight attendants, etc). It was a horrid experience all around. That was in August, and they just got back to me in regards to a credit for it this week. I will of course give them another chance - but it was so disappointing at the time.

    On a business trip from Houston to Singapore back in 2010 I learned that all business/first class cabins are not created equal. It involved three airlines, Continental, All Nippon and Singapore. Courtesy of my employer it was my first (and only) experience with upgraded seating. With the passage of time the specific details of each have faded so I am left only with lasting impressions. The leanest was All Nippon. The next best was Continental. But the runaway winner was Singapore. I had heard tales of their excellence for years, and on the return trip I got to experience it first hand. The flight went Singapore - Moscow - Houston and including the stopover in Moscow I was on this Boeing 777 for 23 hours. There were only four seats across and each one of them were like a small cubicle. The seats were VERY wide and folded down flat. It was the closest thing to having a bed to sleep on that I have ever had on a plane, Full pillows, the screen on the inflight video had to have been about 17". It was on this flight that I my first encounter with noise cancelling headphones and the first time I was able to get significant sleep on any airliner. My cubicle happened to be in the last row, and at one point I peered through the curtains for a look back into economy and felt sorry for those who were trapped in those cramped conditions for such a LONG flight. Been there, felt that many times.

    I recently flew United for the first time and flew Delta for the first time in a long time earlier this year, and I definitely have to give Delta the nod for Economy. The cabin felt nicer they offered a choice of a few different snacks on all flights on Delta. United only offered a small bag of pretzels on one of the three flights (BZN-DEN) and it was the shortest one. The boarding process was also much smoother on Delta. I will definitely give the nod to United in that the Embraer 175 we flew from BZN to DEN was much nicer than the 717s we flew from MSP to CLT and CLT to ATL with Delta. We have three different flights home from Costa Rica with United in a couple days so we’ll see if they do any better… I would appreciate even a small breakfast on our four hour flight from SJO to IAH that leaves at midnight…

    I think United's is in an interesting position. If you get on a MAX the experience is a bit nicer, great seatback entertainment, bigger windows, and more comfy seats. Also pre-departure beverage is a mixed experience. It is supposed to be back in full force, but I've had some flights with none, some with just water, and some with OJ, Champagne, and water.
    The other thing when flying United is you don't have to fly with the cabin you had! 757 and 777 are common on the same route with full layflats. The 757 without the layflats is actually incredibly uncommon.

      That's because their Airbuses are smaller than their Boeings in general. Their smallest 737-700 also has 3 rows, just like the A319. They were going to put 4 rows in their bigger A320s, but that's put on hold for some reason. My guess is they will retire those A320s.

    I have the American Airlines app on my phone…just for the iMessage stickers. What, the stickers are cute and informative. The only other airlines to have stickers are Delta (which also come with the app), QANTAS, WestJet and Alaska Airlines (all three of these are standalone sticker packs separate from the airlines’ apps). I find the WestJet, Fly Delta and American Airlines stickers to be the most useful. The WestJet stickers include messages like “Arrived”, “Departed” and “Delayed” in both English and French as well as the call letters for most airports in Canada. Fly Delta’s stickers also have airport call letters, but for airports in the United States. American Airlines’s stickers include messages like “Made it through security” which can also be useful for telling someone your flight is going to be okay

      Hey, a few comments: the use of the term "first class" for domestic premium travel is merely the way the airlines choose to label the product. It is not intended to be better than business class. For example, with United, "first class" refers to any seat in the front of the plane for most domestic flights. "Business class" refers to their shorter-haul international flights (such as flights to Canada and Central America) and then "Polaris Business class" refers to long-haul international flights (to Europe, Asia, Middle East, Oceania and South America). As far as lounge access: the big 3 airlines here consider their lounges to be paid membership lounges rather than a perk for premium class flyers. The lounges are already way too crowded and would be worse if everyone who bought a domestic first class ticket could enter. The only exception to this policy is if you are flying on one of their premium class transcontinental flights (such as between NY and LA). For all three airlines, these flights get more of an international level of service that includes lounge access.
      Of course if you are flying international business class, or have a certain level of elite status and on an international flight, you also get lounge access.

    Great piece! I used to love the 757 but Delta (my primary airline) I think has gotten rid of just about all of them. They still have lots of 737-8's but the 9's are much nicer (and newer). Just about all of their mainline flights have seatback IFE at this point. Covid helped accelerate their retirement plans for the old MD88, 90's and other non IFE equipped planes. I was very surprised that a virtually new 737 MAX didn't have any entertainment. I think American just doesn't have the money to pay for those types of things currently. I don't follow United much but in fairness, comparing an old 757 to a MAX is pretty hard. I think all three are flying 321's now, if you do a similar comparo in the future, see if you can get on all A321's. Love your work, hope to see you in the skies one day!

      I really would like to fly Delta again in the future to try business class at least. I will say this: from personal experience, I have nothing against American's crew. They were always professional and a pleasure to talk with. I even had a long chat with an AA pilot on a flight from SFO to Dallas one time. It was an interesting conversation, very casual and friendly but you learned a LOT of stuff too. I was shocked how much time the airline expected him to do flight simulator training, which is why they were having him fly to Dallas. Then he was to get an assigned route and be sent to the city they needed him in but I forgot to ask if there is any "seniority" with pilots and whether it lets them pick the region to fly in domestically.

    I flew AA First Class back in September of this year from BWI to Nassau via Miami (I was expecting via Charlotte, so Murphy rewarded me 😅) and while the food offerings weren’t really breakfast material for me, they were still delicious. Meal service on that route is on the BWI-MIA leg because it’s a 3 hour flight down the East Coast. My mom thought the bread on her Turkey & Cheese sandwich was damp. I thought it was fine. My dad got a fruit plate and wished he’d gone for the Turkey Sandwich.
    I would rate that BWI-MIA part a solid 17/25 stars on the JebScore (Lounge:0 Seat:4 IFE:5 Food:3 Service:5). If the food options were more like what was offered by United, that would be a solid 5 stars on the food category. If the route was BWI-CLT, then the score would be 15/25 stars (Food -2) based on my personal history.
    HOWEVER, the rare times we get a meal service on the CLT-NAS leg receive 19/25 stars (Food +2) because they’re such a treat and I love well-concealed surprises. This goes back to when I went First Class for the first time ever back in 2015 on US Airway’s. That was such a surprise and I am so sad US Airways is gone. I wish I could be a customer of them again just to experience their product more.

    I just flew Delta first class STL to FLL (stopover in ATL) and my wifi was free on all 4 planes. I found the service, comfortableness and timeliness to be great. But you’re very correct about the under seat storage. It wasn’t tall enough. Just short by few inches. The first plane from STL was older as when I got on the second one which was larger, a 757-200 and it flew like butter. It was clearly newer and updated. I could tell just by the tv screens. I’d fly that 757-200 anytime. Compared to the other planes I had to fly there and back, it was very different and way better.

    I rode United 1st class twice back in June, between SFO and Las Vegas. We tried the lounge to no avail. Unfortunately you have to be going to Newark (🤷‍♂️) to get in. The seats were older but very comfortable. I got great last minute deals on the 1st class service between SFO and Vegas (like $99). I'm disappointed to see United come in 3rd. I really like United (I get a 5% Veterans discount on United, American has 10% but it's difficult to figure out).

    I flew Spirit twice last week from IND -> MCO on their big front seat. I had 6 extra inches of legroom from my feet to the seat in front. The seats were very comfy and the windows were plenty big to look at. Our plane was also very new as it was a 3 year old A320. Wi-Fi was only $6 and the flight attendants were helpful and cheerful. I say all of this because my experience flying Spirit wasn’t much if at all different than the 3 major airlines first class offerings. And the big kicker, I only paid $70 each way. Either the narrative needs to change about Spirit or the major carriers need to up their game with first class. Especially if they are going to continue to charge what they do.
