I think almost everyone here can sympathize with the frustration of missing a flight, especially when it's partially due to someone else's mistake. But I think that sympathy erodes when the OP...

I'm not trying to be flippant, but what exactly were you hoping to hear? Yes, Delta probably erred by not updating the gate information. Airlines, including Delta, make mistakes all the time. But...

The press release doesn't directly address this, but my reading is that they are doing away with the hardshell altogether. I'd guess it will take a few months for this change to become widespread,...

I'm not asking you to agree with the perspective that it's exploitive to make families pay to sit together (I personally think the policy is reasonable). I'm just surprised that you don't seem to be...

I don’t have a problem with the existence of Basic Economy fares– I simply resent the narrative that they’re consumer friendly because they provide “cheaper options.” It’s a price discrimination...

The problem I have with your statement is the word “lower.” Lower than what? Before, legacy carriers like Delta matched the fares of low-cost carriers like Spirit. When they introduced Basic Economy...
