There are a few things I expect from a flight crew upon boarding. Knocking the shit off the seats before takeoff is definitely one of them. But apparently, this was too much to ask of one Delta crew.
Much like many rental car companies, airlines are now ending any discounts associated with National Rifle Association membership. In a tweet today, United Airlines announced that their partnership with the NRA will be ending.
Commercial planes are a nightmare. The last thing anyone should want to do is board a giant hunk of metal, only to be sealed inside with people they’ve never met while precariously speeding through thin air. Commercial planes sound like even more of a nightmare when a bird joins the party, causing the flight to turn…
A slew of recent news related to airline and rideshare companies tapping into biometric identification—like fingerprints, faces, other unique body parts—seems like it just means an easier way to board your flight. But beyond the surface, giving corporations and the government this much access to sensitive data poses a…
More than anything else, this video is maddeningly frustrating, in a deeply Kafkaesque manner. It shows a system where slavish adherence to literal rules has destroyed reason and decency, and the result is bad for everyone— the passengers directly involved, Delta, the other passengers on the plane, and probably you…
The nightmarish delays that started Wednesday at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport apparently aren’t over after nearly four days, as reports of long lines and more flight delays popped up on Saturday morning. Doesn’t this really make you wish you could drive everywhere?
A 22-year-old New Yorker and well-known YouTube video guy said he was kicked off a Delta flight from London because passengers felt uncomfortable after he spoke to his mother in Arabic before takeoff. The airline confirmed that he and another passenger were removed because people felt “discomfort.”
To an airline, no one is special. Even the first class jamokes. You all line up like the cattle you are at your assigned boarding time, or you don’t get to leave. One woman on a recent Delta flight thought she was above such petty attempts to instill order in the boarding process and got on the plane early, prompting…
Today is going to be a bad day to fly. Following a power outage at its Atlanta headquarters early this morning, Delta Airlines has been in the grips of a massive computer system failure worldwide, leading the company to ground all departing flights.
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.
Much like the internet and the memes that live on it, you either love or hate Delta’s latest string of in-flight safety videos. Well, those two worlds have finally collided to create something that’s wonderfully idiotic.
Laguardia Airport in New York has been closed after Delta flight 1086, inbound from Atlanta, skidded off Runway 13 on landing. No injuries reported so far but the airport officials claim the airplane is on fire and the FDNY is transmitting a two alarm response.
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.
Delta Air Lines is opposing an Atlanta developer's plan to commercialize a second airport, to the northwest of the city. Paulding Airport, currently a general aviation airport, is being evaluated for future use by commercial airlines. Delta says it would threaten their hub at Hartsfield-Jackson, the world's busiest…
Team USA just played one hell of a match against Ghana in the World Cup. So Delta Airlines paid homage to these wonderful athletes with a Statue of Liberty and a giraffe.
Getting stuck on a plane sucks. Like, it really sucks. Sitting on the tarmac for hours is the bane of many traveler's existence. But Delta did something about it. They got pizza delivered to passengers stranded on the tarmac.
The Group A Delta Integrale was wide and loud and fast: perfect for a rally stage, but kind of terrible if you're making a first impression to a potential boss. Think you could climb out of those racing buckets without crumpling your resume?
The Delta-flagged jet that ended up in a ditch today wasn't a prank but, instead, an attempt by a fugitive wanted in connection with a murder who managed to break into the plane and managed to pilot it as far as the parking lot before crashing.
An incident involving a SkyWest plane in Delta livery occurred overnight at St. George Municipal Airport in St. George, UT.
