I can always be wrong on this but I'd say (just with my own production background) a commercial like this was filmed at a regional airport (or smaller, if not in a studio) and on a remote stand on the field. Filming at CVG or SLC could be difficult and constant airtraffic and noise in the background would severely disrupt a film crew.
if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport

My personal guess is that they used their new terminal in BOS. It has the right look and they could of filmed it in the last few weeks between the end of construction and the grand opening which is scheduled sometime this month I believe.
Although the commercial is not bad, it's not the best I have ever seen either. IMHO the best airline commercials recently are AirTran's and the talking animals on Frontier. I agree the tune is catchy though.

The first time I saw the Delta "Good Goes Around" commercial was last night while on approach into Orlando onboard jetBlue 79 from JFK (how is that for irony).
I was actually very impressed with it, and that is becuase I think I had fairly low expectations. I didn't quite understand what "good goes around" meant until I saw it. I think it follows a "pay it forward" idea, in which one good deed will lead to another good deed, etc.
Basically, Delta's new fares will lead to world peace.
Ok, so I over-analyzed it there, but it is that idea of good deeds leading to more good deeds and ultimately good feelings I think they are trying to convey. At least, that is what I got.
I have yet to see the AirTran or Frontier commercials, but the Delta commercial did somewhat remind me of AA's recent commercials.

I liked the commercial at first, but it's starting to annoy me since it's one of those songs that can get easily stuck in your head after hearing it a few times. I guess that's they way they want it-they don't want you to ever forget their commercial.
