Delta: We'll Throw You In Jail and Put Your Kids In Foster Care

So it is not just United. Great, Now, Delta is getting into the act. Family Friendly Airlines!
Dad: “I have two infants,” he said, “and nowhere to stay. There’s no more flights. What are we supposed to do — sleep in the airport?” 
Delta Airlines: “At this point, you guys are on your own,” she said.

You can't go home again. We are way past the golden age of air travel:

You can't do this on airlines anymore (or pretty much anywhere else) but there was something to be said for not tolerating poor service and rude behavior.


  1. People will tell you it stands for Don't Ever Leave The Airport.

  2. Delta story seems much worse than United. The family purchased a ticket for their child. The FA wanted the family to give up the seat for nothing, and the family didn't want to give up the seat. So Delta escalated the issue by just throwing the whole family off the plane. Sure they were beaten by police, but the doctor on the United flight disobeyed a police officer and flat out told the police he would need to be dragged off to comply. This family was civil the entire time, and Delta was not at any time.

    Still, all three major US airlines have shown themselves to be an ass in the past 3 weeks.


I welcome all legitimate comments. Keep it civil. Spam will be deleted. Thanks.
