                                          Better than the flight from Washington to Detroit

                                          Happy with the check-in process and Delta airlines team.

                                          Jul 29, 2018

                                          Had a great flight however not so happy with new process, "seat assigned after check in" as I tend to end up in the middle seat which is my least favorite and trying to get it changed is such a hassle, i.e. waiting in long lines only to find out every seat has been booked.

                                          The free movies and games made traveling with my Toddler so much easier. I also appreciate the pre-boarding option.

                                          Flight attendants were amazing with our toddler.

                                          Why in the modern age are airline seats so damn uncomfortable? We’re going to the moon and back – certainly we can make an airline seat comfortable.

                                          Very informative on why they were de-icing a 2nd time. Overall good experience

                                          Despite having five people with a close connection due to flight delays and being at the gate prior to the connecting flight departed, the gate agent refused to allow is to board because it was within five minutes of scheduled departure.

                                          Jun 21, 2018

                                          Cancellation of this flight alerted me in the middle of the night requiring that I call to request a different flight and delaying my selection. Poor customer service. Should have contacted passengers sooner about cancelled connecting flights.

                                          Mar 26, 2018

                                          American Airlines was the ONLY airline to all flights into DCA that day from DTW. I ended up flying Delta and all of their flights flew as normal. No inclement weather all day in Washing DC. Rain only. Poor Management decision to cancel flights.
