Greetings fellow A.Netters!
I am hoping someone familiar with Delta operations can satisfy my curiousity. I fly every couple months from the Midwest to the West Coast and have been flying Delta recently (since they NWA merger). I purchase tickets about a month in advance and always have been able to choose a seat. I am booked on DL4091 from FNT to DTW on 11 March and I cannot choose a seat. I purchased the tickets 3 weeks ago and haven't been able to secure a seat, not that is a big deal as it is only a 55 minute flight. I have never been in this situation before. I am wondering why this would be and if someone could answer my question I would be grateful. I am afraid that I will show up at the airport and they will say there is a van waiting outside to drive you to DTW (which has happened before when a plane has been downed for mechanical reasons).
Just curious and thanks.
