Flights Review

Jan 30, 2020

The Delta Supervisor helped us when the security decided that our carry on luggage is oversized and need to check those in but the Supervisor walked with us through that security and he signed something some kind of paper for us to be able to carry our hand carry luggage with us. We really appreciated that. Great job for him. Thank you!!!

Small plane means small carry on luggage does not fit, must be gate checked.

I would have appreciated it if there was no fee for my first bag.
