I leave the lounge at the scheduled boarding time of my flight to New-York JFK. The route to the gate makes me backtrack to the D gates, while the lounge is located at the entrance of the E gates.
As a reminder, here is the itinerary followed:
When I arrive at the gate, the boarding of groups 1 to 5 has already taken place and I can use the priority lane and enter the jetbridge without waiting.
A jams forms in the jetbridge and I will enter the aircraft after a few minutes.
Cabin and welcome
The Domestic First cabin of this Embraer 175 is quite large with 4 rows of 3 seats. Recliner seats are very comfortable.
The welcome is however very cold: no proactive cloackroom service, and no welcome drink.
The boarding is quickly finished and we will leave almost on time from our parking point
Service and catering
The service starts about ten minutes after the aircraft takes off.
The flight attendant in charge of the First cabin asks me what I would like to drink: I ask for a Jack Daniels on the rocks, which is promptly brought to me.
A distribution of nuts, different from the ones of the previous flight, will follow. They are good quality.
Arrival and disembarkation
After a few laps in a holding pattern, we arrive at the gate with a little more than 20 minutes of delay.
An ordinary flight, but a sub-par service. Shame.
