Well. If all you want to eat or drink is Water, Lemonade, and Snack Mix (NO COKE PRODUCTS). and you like paying High Fares to fly on planes that only the maintenance crews actually care about (and the pilots and Flight Attendants) than GO ON AHEAD.

Hmm, not critter again . I've always been pleased with Delta They have great low fares, nice service, and clean, safe planes. You will obviously have a choice of many more beverages besides water and lemonade, and depending on the length and time of you flight(s), you might get meal service. DL service is very comparable to the other U.S. majors. Oh, and by the way, DL has the lowest percentage of fatal crashes per million out of the six majors in the United States.

Delta isn't bad. I didn't say they were good, I said not bad. There MD-80's are cramped if you sit in the set of 3 seats, but if you are in the set of 2 seats, then they are comfortable. As Wilcharl said, they will reliably get you there with no frills. If you want above average service, fly Continental.

Well I think you stop in either CVG or ATL, so you probably won't get a "meal". MKE-ATL you'd get the skydeli gimmic. As far as the "If all you want to eat or drink is Water, Lemonade, and Snack Mix (NO COKE PRODUCTS)." That's on short little 1 hour flights. ATL-MCO get's juice, water, a few soda choices, and the snack mix. Really, if you can't go an hour without food or drink, bring your own. I like DL a lot, as far as a/c and service. After flying jetBlue 10 times then flying on DL, it sucks without a PTV, haha. Only thing wrong with JB is they have 1 a/c type, I like flying on different a/c . It should be a fun flight, what are the a/c you'll get to and from MCO?

Probably not PAPATANGO, but anyways, Delta has served my needs well, AND HAS COKE PRODUCTS ON MY FLIGHTS!! Delta's planes and service are great and their pilots are reliable, most of the time- once he slammed us into the ground landing in Orlando, but otherwise I find them to be a wonderful airline.

I personally love DL. They have always been very friendly and helpful, and I have always had coke products, even on short flights. They have very safe aircraft and have highly trained and qualified employees. I can't compare them with other airlines well because I have only flown on Delta and Vanguard. I liked Vanguard but I still love delta.

Delta is not bad at all...my favorite out of the majors. Service is pretty comparable to other carriers, though DL's drink cups and snack mix is larger than anyone else's.
-On most if not all ATL-Florida flights, as well as flights under 1 hourm you will have a choice of bottled water, lemonade, coke, cranapple juice, coffee, etc, usually 3, choices dependent upon the time.
-You'll get snack mix and in the morning, usually
"Granola Berry Crunch".
-Once every few years, you'll get champagne as a choice.

Delta needs to offer more selections on their florida flights. I am used to NWA's service where we get full drink service on ALL flights. In addition, jetBlue is the way to go when it involves Florida. It beats AirTran and Delta. I have flown with Comair-The Delta Connection, and they always have full beverage service, no such thing as "Fastbreak" with them, but then again, they are a partner airline. I liked Comair, but I dont want such a limited amount of drinks to Florida.
Delta has a habit of jacking fares up, such as in Mobile. $478 One way and all you get is Fastbreak. $407 Roundtrip (ATL), when you can go over to Gulfport-Biloxi (GPT) and get a new 717-200 with AirTran, $60 One way fare, Full Drink and Snack Service, and Fresh Air. 45 Minutes to ATL, the way to go. I think i'll take FL. I would be stuck with ASA if I am going to some place FL does not serve. Thanks to FL, ASA lowered their fares for now. I have never flown ASA, but their agents suck. Their crews are great.

SOMETIMES the service offered depends on the cabin crew, once I flew ASA from atl to grr and the f/a had a full beverage, full light MEAL basket , hot towels, and offered FREE wine and beer! Once landed, I waited after other psgrs deplaned and spoke with him and he said if he has access to the supplies HE prefers to offer a "higher" level of service on the flights he works...since he said most of them he works...he works alone as the only f/a...unless it is an ASA ATR-72 which requires two f/a's...EMB120 and CRJs that ASA has only require ONE. Very nice gentleman and provided excellent, friendly service...I sent a compliment letter to his supervisor. I later heard so did other passengers...so it does make a difference

Standard beverage service on FL consists of Coke products, and Biscoffs for Breakfast or Snack Mix for Lunch/Dinner Flights. Business class recieves a larger snack mix bag with more types of mucnies in it and 2 adult beverages. Breakfast hour business flights get Nutragrain Bars
I was very glad to see your post. Glad someone @ DL agrees that DL has a fair amount of grouches. Friends of mine with DL all agree but SOME PEOPLE on here can't come out and admit it. Not that other carriers dont have their problems, but our pax, have said our crews are more pleaseing, DL's crews jumpseating on us have complimented our niceness and friends of mine @ DL say they hear it all the time about the grouchyness.

Hey, be considerate at least. I've flown Delta a few times from TPA-EWR, and I loved it. The service was fabulous. Critter592, I just wanna say that if you have a few bad experiences, that doesn't mean the airline sucks. I've had several bad experiences with airlines, but I don't think they suck. Now when Chuckles flies Delta, I doubt the service, and bad gate agents will be mean and bad, you know, it doesn't happen on every flight.

I am rather curious about the standards some of you people are using to compare service. If Delta serves water, lemonade or fruit punch with a bag of pretzels, they suck -- but if Jetblue serves coke and a bag of pretzels, then they are the greatest thing since sliced bread!??
I travel (mostly on Delta) on business almost every week, from my home in Jackson, MS. What I like about Delta is that I can go almost anywhere on just 2 flights. The prices are very competitive. Example - Jackson - Chicago, Southwest advanced purchase fare is $230, Delta is $251 (NO Sat. night layover required), which includes a reserved seat! I could actually have gotten a lower fare had I reserved sooner.
On short flights, the best service I can get is to be left alone. The lemonade and pretzels don't do anything for me. On longer flights, I use my 800-mile upgrade points to get into first class, where I can get a nice snack or meal.
That's why Delta is a favorite among business travelers -- frequent flights to lots of destinations, good rewards.

The most important thing I look at is the track record of the airline, which is good. I can care less how many times the flight crew kisses my ass, and gives me everything I want. Just as long as I get on the ground safe; which you can with Delta. That is the big gem of it all.
You can have wonderful in-flight staff, but when that plane crashes, does it matter? No! I'd take a safe flight over anything. And I believe you can get that with Delta.
