Re: DTW train... still broken?

My gate agent told me it was due to social distancing issues. That doesn’t quite make sense — as pointed out, ATL’s train is also technically optional like Detroit’s. I’d guess DL has been careful to place tight connections closer together when feasible. That said I’m sure there are still plenty of ...

Re: DTW train... still broken?

One more comment, I love that the train is still red. One of the last NWA legacy items, though of course red is also a Delta color. I still think Northwest whenever I see the train as I pass through this great terminal.

DTW train... still broken?

Why is the train still broken in DTW?? Any insider info? Came through in August and now sitting here right now eating my Coney dog wondering why it is still not fixed. How did it break and why is it still not working? Try not to blame COVID unless you know for sure that is the reason.

Re: Reuters: Boeing considering 757-Plus and 767-X

Friends, please be kind with my question: I’m probably wrong here, but if the 707/727/737/757 fuselages are essentially similar, could Boeing design a much lighter version of the 787 and sell it at a lower price as a less heavy alternative to essentially replace the 767? Is that even possible just t...

Re: SLC Airport to Close All Existing Gates in September

Based on those passenger totals it is important to remember for focus cities on the coasts you have thousands of people traveling from very large city to very large city every day that are within a two hour flight or less. There is little equivalency for SLC. It’s apples to oranges. That’s why Delta...

Re: ERJ 175 Pilots bored out of their minds even on regional flights

I’m truly curious for the US pilots to give more color on what they do during those long transcons, red eyes, and such. Sounds like no books or newspapers, but I can’t believe that the hundreds/thousands of pilots doing this each day don’t bring a paperback with them or have a kindle or a crossword ...

Re: Airbus considering re-branding CSeries as A200

I don’t like using the numbers immediately below A318. That number range feels like it is for that existing family of aircraft. It feels like an A317, A316, A315, etc. would be even shorter than the A318 while sharing the same platform as the whole A320 family. I love the idea of an A220 with number...

Call the 1-800 number and select the option to book new travel. You will be connected to a real person much faster and then can pivot to your existing itenerary. Modifying existing reservations with Delta has resulted in very long wait times for me as well in the past. Then last summer I thought to ...
