Well, I don't know if they were powered or the liquid, but they had that weird rubbery taste and looked like little blocks of opaque yellow jello. Certainly not real. At least the SEA ones tasted real.

No Subtitles

I'd like to complain that there is no ability to turn on live TV subtitles on DL's IFE. Pathetic.

.....and the selection of movies with closed captioning is very limited.

I find IFE to be completely unusable without surround sound.

No earphones available on a flight without IFE but as wifi and their entertainment is available on your own device, they should have had some available.....

I should be able to Bluetooth to the IFE so I can use my own noise-cancelling headphones and not have to dig around my bag for the audio cable. I could even continue to listen to the game on Live TV on my trip the lavatory if it close enough to my seat.

I mean everyone is making a big deal of the camera module that is supposedly disabled in these newer screens, so they must have a Bluetooth module in there as well.

I'm sure someone here is capable of programing a USB drive to reactivate a dormant bluetooth radio.

One for the books...

I am a 5'5" 105 lb woman. Had a 40ish, 6' +, 300 lb +/- man seated in the window seat next to me. He had showed no mobility issues as he came on to the plane and placed both his oversized roller and backpack in the overhead bin. No issues when he got up to use the lav. We are disembarking the plane. I get up, get my bag and step back to block traffic for him to exit. He actually asks me to get his bags down. I laughed, thinking he was trying to be funny. He was actually serious, and less than amused when I told him my theory (which applies to myself and everyone else)--if you can't tote it and store it, don't bring it on board . Still smh.

No upgrade with miles for Delta One Suites

Hi,
Flying a flight from AMS-DTW on the plane with the Delta One suites and to my surprised, when trying to upgrade today with miles from Premium Select to Delta One at the KLM lounge, I was informed that since recently, it is only upgradable with a Global Cert.
I find this totally ridiculous... why did they change the policy. It seems even no upsell with money (you have to when you purchase your ticket purchase it outright).

Terrible in my books.

Cheers!

I'm pretty sure delayed medallion kits is a contender for all-time most pathetic thing to complain about.

I'm disappointed that the "2" on my red MM brag tags isn't bigger and at least painted to glow in the dark if not diamond chip encrusted.

If it makes you feel any better, to those of us without brag tags, any brag tags basically flash in bright colors and play the sounds of angels singing and trumpets blaring, regardless of the "2" being there.

You think that's bad, I haven't even gotten an FO brag tag yet, let alone one that shows my 0.053 MM status!

The restaurant across from C55 at CMH does not serve french fries.
