One of the best flights I have ever been on...

Jan 30, 2020

I was glad to find a customer service area in the Alaska terminal to direct me in the right direction to my gate. It wasn't clear coming off the escalator that there were gates ahead & behind me.

I would have liked to receive my flight assignment at check in rather than at the gate

Jul 12, 2019

Always such a pleasure to fly with Delta! Thank you.

Jun 17, 2019

My seat got changed at the gate, which was unfortunate since I got moved to a seat further back in the plane. More notice would have been appreciated.

Seattle airport security tsa line was complete chaos like I have never seen before in any airport anywhere in the world. Out of control. Very disorganized.
