A Fun Mexico City Weekend Getaway thanks to Delta Airlines & We All Grow Latina Summit
A First Class Adventure! (Part 1 of 3)
Our First Night in Mexico City
Friends, every now and then I get lucky with amazing opportunities. I blame it the law of universal attraction and maybe a little bit of pixie dust.
Last Spring, I attended the incredible We All Grow Summit, a conference created by Bossmom Ana Flores for Latina influencers and content creators (currently listed as one of the best conferences for women by Forbes).
Delta Airlines was a sponsor at We All Grow Summit
and they had a really cool activation where conference attendees were able to learn more about the airline, its many flight features and even network with the airline’s PR reps. Before leaving the suite, guests had a chance to win a number of prizes by spinning a fun prize wheel.
When my sister Frances spun the wheel, she got a free Starbucks gift card (she was happy).
When I spun the wheel, I learned I would be entered into a separate raffle for a chance to win first-class, round trip tickets to one of many destinations.
Low and behold, a few weeks later, I received news that I’d won the raffle prize trip to Mexico City!
Fast forward to January 2019
and we arrived at LAX ready to embark on an adventure to Mexico City, a place we hold dear to our hearts because that’s where my mom is from. We’ve been visiting the Mexican Capitol (previously known as ‘El D.F.’) since we were little girls and there’s always so much to do and see!
To start the journey, we learned that with our First-class tickets, we’d have access to Delta Airline’s Sky Club, located on the 4th floor of Terminal 2 at LAX.
The Delta Sky Club is an exclusive lounge
for Sky Priority Members (generally first class passengers and folks who’ve racked up a lot of Delta Sky points).
The Sky Club is a great place to work, rest, wine and dine!
Passengers can enjoy this area before it’s time to board the plane at their respective gates.
Offerings at the Delta Sky Club include:
Hot and cold food buffets, snacks, free publications like the L.A. Times and an open bar. Cheers, friends!
Once aboard the plane (we actually flew on an Aeromexico flight operated by Delta), we were thrilled to be seated at the very front row!
First class passengers get
very ample seats, a really nice meal and a wide selection of drinks (including alcoholic beverages).
Even though WiFi was not included on this particular flight, the airline’s internet service, GoGoFlight was very reasonably priced.
Overall, the 3-hour flight was smooth, except for maybe about 15 minutes of turbulence. I took a short nap and before I knew it, we were descending!
Upon arriving at the Benito Juarez International Airport,
getting to our luggage was easy since it was marked with a yellow “priority” tag. For this trip, we ordered a private car company to pick us up from the airport. We figured, if Delta had given us this unique opportunity to fly first class, might as well make it an all-around first-class adventure!
