Normally airline advertisements try to hook with you with Great Deals™ or an awkward rendition of your grandpa’s favorite song. Not Delta’s latest advertisement. This Delta ad reminds us of the miracle of flight, and opens our eyes to our potential.

On select Delta Air Lines flights today, fliers will get free margaritas, as the airline celebrates its 1,000,000th margarita sold on board. Delta says they serve an average of 1,000 margaritas made with Tequila Avion (nice branding there) every day.
A BuzzFeed intern and NYU senior recently claimed to have hacked Delta's paperless boarding pass system by changing just one digit in a URL. "On Delta, you can change the URL of your boarding pass and get someone else's boarding pass," Dani Grant wrote in a Medium post. "Even if they're on a different airline." This…
Anytime you go careening through the air in a giant metal tube full of strangers and recirculated air, you're probably not going to have a great time. The airlines make sure of this.

In honor of Evil Week, we're switching up the Hive a little bit. Normally we look for the five best, but this week we're looking for the five worst—specifically the worst airlines in the skies.

The modern boarding pass is a mess, so it's great to see a major airline like Delta put so much thought into their new one, launching today. It's clearer, easier to read, and no longer looks like splatter art done with random bits of information.
Remember that time you'd just barely survived a US Airways flight into Atlanta, fought your way through a crowded hellscape of angry travelers, and then had to drag your bags to your car only to see some pampered Delta customer get into a brand new Porsche? You weren't hallucinating.
It's been a bad month for Delta. On the heels of the firestorm over baggage fees the airline was charging soldiers returning from active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan comes a story from a British man named Sy Haze, who is accusing Delta of peeing all over his clothes and stealing aftershave from his luggage, among…
