Thank You For Reading The World’s Most Trusted “Blog”

Reading the title of this article, you are probably asking yourself to which weblog I am referring. If I replied The Gate, you would most likely think that I was full of myself. What criteria would I have used to call The Gate the World’s Most Trusted “Blog”? Would it be that I reliably post an article at an average of once per day? Perhaps the content is always accurate 100 percent of the time — which I even admit is not true, as I am thankful to have readers point out inaccuracies to me found in the articles I post.

How do you feel about Delta Air Lines serving pizza to passengers at an airport gate during irregular operations? Better yet, how do you feel about me using a photograph of a pizza which has nothing to do with this article but I felt like featuring a photograph by a fellow FlyerTalk member?

Which Would You Prefer When Delayed: Pizza or a Meal Voucher?

In recent months, there have been reports of delayed passengers of Delta Air Lines being served pizza at the gate at airports within the United States. At first, FlyerTalk members were lauding Delta Air Lines pertaining to this new policy — but it was apparently at the expense of meal vouchers during irregular operations. Those meal vouchers — typically good for ten dollars or so worth of food at certain vendors within the airport — have reportedly since been eliminated…but then FlyerTalk members started reporting the disadvantages of this new policy.
