Was required to check my carry-on bag at boarding time since I was in last group (Basic). This possibility should be presented at time of ticket purchase to plan accordingly.

Crowded flights.

Kudos to the ATL staff of Delta for taking care of me when I missed my connection.

First flight from Key West was extremely cold.

Dec 28, 2019

Overall had a great experience with Delta. Flights were early or on time. The only thing was some of the white stuff on the trip to Orlando was a little less courteous. And I personally think that all tobacco products including dip should be banned from flights

Dec 20, 2019

Flight attendants were in the holiday mood and made it fun! Pilots were friendly and landed super smoothly!

Dec 19, 2019

I wish the skyline miles programm works well

Flight 4472 from Dothan regional Airport to Atlanta was delayed by an hour. Despite the heat on the plane and the long delay, passengers remained pleasant which was entirely due to the service of our flight attendant Sam. She had a great sense of humor, provided timely information on the status of our flight, despite being the only flight attendant on the plane she served water to the entire plane twice as well as snacks once. I cannot say enough good things about her.
