Delta has come under a lot of flak recently for pissing off a lot of Medallion members and changing their structure; however, their flights are still excellent.

These planes still haven't been upgraded with televisions, which is unfortunate considering these are 3+ hour flights. WIFI is nice though. The first class seats are narrower than other planes in the fleet, but it's still decently roomy. I'm a big guy (6'3" 240lbs), and I was able to comfortably stretch out without getting anywhere close to my seat mate.

Delta has, in my opinion, the quintessential domestic first class within the US. Courteous stewardesses that are polite, attentive, and address you properly. Pre-departure drinks. Coat check. Steaming hot towelettes. Wine that keeps flowing (my glass was never empty). Pretty good meals (Orzo with chicken breast was the best choice). Row 1 and 4 will spend a fair bit of time having a cart right next to them while stewardesses are passing through (only a front galley). Rows 2 and 3 are the best. Cheers!
