- I flew on in first class on one of Delta Air Lines’ newest narrow-body jets, the Airbus A321, from Florida to New York.
- I was upgraded into the premium cabin thanks to my Silver Medallion status, which otherwise would’ve cost $159.
- While the seat was comfortable and had good amenities, the lack of service due to the late hour of the flight made for an unmemorable flight.

On a recent flight from Orlando to New York, I got to experience Delta’s domestic first-class product on one of its newest narrow-body aircraft, the Airbus A321.
Delta recently acquired more Airbus aircraft to complement its fleet and became the latest airline to fly the A321 when it took delivery of the type in 2016.
The A321s feature one of the largest first-class cabins found on Delta narrow-body aircraft with 20 seats spread across five rows. Due to the light passenger load of the flight, Delta was selling upgrades for as low as $159 and nearly all elite status holders were upgraded into the cabin from economy.
Here’s what it’s like to fly in first-class on the route.
