Now if DL just would give MSP some decent aircraft and stop ripping out FC/BE/D1 seats.....and undo the redo of the F/G SC to bring back the cubicles, plus give me some cheese and cracker options consistently.
Also as a MSP flyer, you are some what captive unless you like connections. If you only went to places like ORD, MDW, LAX, IAH and DFW(just to name a few) you would have options for UA, SW and AA directs.

However I go to PDX, SEA, BIS, OMA and FAR frequently. Unless I want connections DL is my only option.

I will say after getting moved to a UA flight, DL has better CS. I am not for cattle herding so SW is out(Plus not a fan MSP Term 2). In my short three years of flying I have only had to do connections to one destination PSP as no DL directs.

I have been lucky on getting a fare number of UG being GM and even as FO. I my tickets are usually two weeks or less thus getting high fare class.
