  1. Was on a severely delayed flight MIA-MCO… Nothing was done by MIA crew but upon landing, noticed that the delayed passengers on the next flight were given Burger King for the delay. Nice gesture of very little cost to the airline.

  2. Flight on 04/01 DTW to BHM was delayed 3 hours due to equipment issue on the inbound flight. What did Delta do for us? Zero … zip … zilch … nada.

  3. Over my few years of frequent Drlta flights, they never once did anything to help during a delay. Nothing.

    On the other hand, I was once delayed a few hours on a Southwest flight, and they kinda provided each person on the plane w/ a travel voucher. That’s what I am talking about! Incentivize folks to come back! And this is why I love SW.

  4. Yay Delta. We were delayed for a couple of hours coming out of Dulles last year and they brought out some of those Delta cookies. No more loyalty program, doubled the fares but I managed to snag TWO packages of cookies. Delta – the best!
