But the plane will be their bread and butter for 40 years. At some point any company has to pull the trigger on redesign costs such as this.

IMO, there is a huge failure in the current US...

If it comes to pass that a schedule change does give you the option for a refund, it will also give you carte-blanche to change. No rule on this I know of, but any business will prefer to offer a...

I have had no issues caused by going through priceline.com for MU purchases and claiming DL miles.

In this case you are using priceline as a vanilla OTA. The fare is a normal published fare from...

I agree with your tentative decision to handle it now. I do not know what he paid for that first ATL-BMI RT, but anything over $200 on that applies to the new one way ticket, which is about $250.

Delta will check your bags all the way to OSL because KLM is one of the listed partners they do this with (not all Sky Team airlines, not all partners)..

I think there are plenty of 737s where the software control of the stab trim is only a conviance feature,. Shutting off the auto pilot does not make the plane unsafe to fly. On the MAX though, there...

Whenever somebody makes a major change to their travel pattern they should treat this as a blue sky decision.

I like DL. But if I moved to either Dallas or Chicago I would change. The disadvantage...

I can not speak for UA, but the current DL process for larger flights is somewhere between a complete mess and a massive gate lice infestation.

I almost prefer the China airlines where you know...

Two factor is certainly effective, but the second channel must be different from the primary channel.

DL certainly benefits from its hubs. I actually think that it might be their most valuable asset.

Everybody flies out of NYC, so you can wash that.

ATL/DTW/MSP/SLC are all relatively reliable,...

Is DL really padded more than others?

I just random checked ATL-DFW, ALT-LAX and LAX-DFW and all 3 came in with DL having shorter planned flight time than AA (by about 5-10 minutes).

Just cancel now for a full refund and be done. No point sticking with an airline that you are pretty sure will not provide the expected service.

There certainly are options for airlines that will...

I assume DL has some logic in rebooking priority, but not as simple as "ditching low yield" pax. Costs them just as much to push one pax to tomorrow as another (in the same cabin). Does being ably to...

It looks like the airport has a single runway that only has taxi access at one end. So if the wind is blowing hard one way, the planes would have to take off with wind completely behind it. Not good....

I accept that anybody should be very pissed off. And compensation is proper. Perhaps even more than the mandated IDB amount.

There is no such thing as "your" plane. Especially in hubs, planes get swapped for any reason. All the indications you see are simply the plane that is penciled in to handle your flight.

DL has some seats at $280 CVG<>EWR, and plenty to EWR/LGA at $340. And as others have said, there are some non DL options to these airports..

That will not fly.

Trip in vain is for IROPs while a journey is in progress. The pax can demand a refund and a flight back "home". But home is the start of the journey here. So he would be back in...

I doubt they fly before next spring. The airlines do not need them once the travel season is over. And the earlier they put them in the air the more they risk a pax pushback. The longer they wait,...
