Hey guys Don’t charge for one carry on- it’s petty

Jan 20, 2018

I hadn't flown Delta in quite some time, they are very much improved. The flight was on time and everything happened on time, boarding was prompt and efficient, communications were clear. The comfort+ seating actually had value with free drinks and snacks, good power location, the hour of free wifi from t-mobile was a good value.
