Flight attendants really helped me when I was severely plane sick. They were very kind and aided me.

We had a very tight connection in Phoenix, due to late arrival and departure of earlier flight from Atlanta> Phoenix. The Gate agent in Phoenix said she could not call for an electric cart. My husband has a heart condition and simply cannot run from A gates to distant B gates. Fortunately, my husband encountered an available electric cart and was able to get to the gate and we made our connection. What good is having those electric carts if there is no obvious way for a passenger to call one and the airline apparently cannot.

Did not get to pick my seat, however the plane was not full so I moved to a better seat!

Love Delta customer service focus. Only downside is access to entertainment is a bit convoluted. I eventually get t9 it but not intuitive. Just bring the iPad app back and streamline it.
