Watered down

Dear my good friends at Delta,

Going forward when I order a fourth drink on a transcontinental flight, I would prefer that you simply tell me that you have a three drink limit vs watering down my drink. Yes I am able to tell.

I guess this is a first world problem. Though I've never experiences this on an international flight...

I'm assuming you were up front. Do you really think they would go to the effort of giving you half a mini? Maybe they were giving you doubles to start? Or maybe it's the alcohol talking. WDAD (want a double, ask for a double).

Can we delete this thread? I find it unuseful to the forum and takes away from the other discussions.

Let's not be too hasty....I was going to nominate this for the most frivolous complaint of the month so far...

I see you are new so welcome to Flyertalk. Please realize though that this is far from the most trivial thread you will see here. Thankfully our moderators are some of the best and take a much more relaxed approach than the other forums. The Delta forum has a reputation of being much more exciting than the other airline forums. I think that's due to most of here not taking ourselves too seriously. There are a few minority members who more than make up for our lack of seriousness though.

I'd rather them delete you because this thread does have merit.

You've been here less than a month and you're already complaining about threads. You'll get along well here.

I have often had four drinks on a transcontinental flight. No problem. Hmmm.

Def. Should go to the most trivial complaint thread.... At least you got a fourth... Some have reported not...

IBTL (or merge)
