I don't think it's inexplicable at all. The lack of seat selection and inferior IRROPS aren't much of an issue on short flights within a state that rarely experiences weather issues. No change fees...

This is a very lazy way of thinking. Without the demand from you (and others who have purchased tickets on the flight) the flight would not exist. You are indisputably responsible for 1/n (adjust...

Did you really just make the "plane is flying there anyway" argument?

It should be self evident that airlines design capacity for future flights on a given route based in large part on the...

This is the answer...IMO it's insane to have to fly the same route (<500 miles each way or just over that) 49 weeks out of 52 at $500/wk (annual spend well over $20,000) on Delta and not even reach...

This has got to be the most common scenario. In fact I had the same thing happen on UA DEN-JAC when many inbound flights to DEN were delayed due to weather. Everyone would have lost an entire day of...

There are separate SkyPriority and Clear (non-precheck) lines at the north entrance. I can't comment on how long those lines were, though, as the entire terminal was such a mass of humanity that it...

I believe that a meal is always served in First Class on all flights over 1500 miles. DTW-PDX at 1953 miles would qualify.
