These brag tags are what I recently received. They appear to be paper glued to a very thin plastic piece and do not last two months in mild travel (four trips!). An agent at MSP was very nice in...

The Delta app was up to date but the gate displays were not and confused me to no end. They showed boarding for Missoula when in fact it was my Atlanta flight. Nearly missed it because of that. I...
