Jan 11, 2020

The first half of my flight was fine. The second half from Mexico City to Puerto Vallarta was delayed 2 hrs. with no notification. I was worried that I would miss the plane and ran all over the airport.

Nov 29, 2019

Everything was as should be. Except flight was rescheduled to leave earlier. Fortunately I was at airport early sand didn't miss flight.

Nov 11, 2019

The Flight attendants where very friendly. The televisions in the headrest are necessary, sets Delta apart from the rest along with several other perks.
