Agreed. The hubris of the Delta cheer squad is insufferable, and I think a lot of us are sick and tired of them, but some of the posters in this thread are stooping just as low. That's disappointing as I had hoped that the United and American fanboys would take the moral high ground in dealing with the Delta guys to show just how hollow Delta's echo chamber really is.
That said, I think some of the posters in this thread are ratcheting up the hyperbole just to give the Delta guys a dose of their own medicine, not because they necessarily believe in what they're saying.
When you repeat something enough you start to believe it even if it is untrue. But karma has proved that it really isn't true and Delta is nothing more than a greedy investor orientated corporation that is to big to care and has little or no concern for the employee or customer experience.
Are you honestly serious in thinking that DL differs at all from the rest of the pack? So somehow DL is the only airline that is a "greedy investor oriented corporation that is too big to care..." ? That is simply asinine - DL is just like every single other airline in this regard. That's what a corporation is, an entity that exists to maximize shareholder wealth. Have you taken economics before? That's what the free-market is all about.
At the expense of the customer and the employee and this happens on an every day bases just on a smaller scale it's just that this meltdown amplifies the way this airline is truly run and if you can agree with all this then to only thing I can say is you work in management because every one should be outraged at what happened here and heads should roll. If Delta spent as much time on their IT system as they do tweaking their capacity on a daily basis to drive up ticket prices then maybe they might be a better run company and this stuff wouldn't happen. Ed Bastian should be escorted out if this happened in lower level management they manager who's fault it was would be fired on the spot this is Bastian's baby and he screwed up big time since the last meltdown nothing has changed.
