The old days ...

In the old days of the CVG hub, I know I've flown Delta mainline IND-CVG (99 miles) SDF-CVG (84 mi) and, I think, LEX-CVG (70 mi).

I dropped my Delta American Express card a few years back, largely because of Delta's continued mileage devaluation moves. I get 50-60,000/miles year on Delta from flying. Why should I pay $90/year...

"Focus City" is, sadly, just a Delta euphemism for "de-hubbed, with plans for even fewer flights over time." Just ask the folks at CVG.

Brian, did you inquire if Delta is going to stick with touch screen IFE controls in the Slimline seat? The touch screen Delta offers today isn't very sensitive to touch; as a result, I will often...

For streaming content and wi-fi, I see two issues that put Delta (and some others) at a disadvantage over some competitors: 1) pricing and 2) its reliance on Gogo's technology.

AVOD with touchscreens -- not good

Hey, Corporate Guy: why does Delta continue to insist on installing AVOD systems with touchscreens, rather than armrest controls? It is bad enough that the touchscreens are difficult to use (the...
