Assigned at the gate...exit row seat

Des Moines airport needs a better cleaning regimen - facility was filthy in the terminals - plugged sink ( there was only one with about 2 inches of stagnant water in it - gross ) didn’t look like the floors had been cleaned throughout in a while either. Flight was short but adequate. Check in staff at Delta was very friendly though.
