There were complications with my flights boarding in spokane and my secondary flight was changed without my consent to one that boarded at the same time as my first flight let me out on the opposite side of the massivr layover airport. It was only because an employee saw my struggle and confusion and hooked me up with a ride that I even made the flight dispite delta's best efforts. My TV's headphone jack on my first flight was also busted which sucked to find out after buying headphones on the flight. About halfway through the flight one of the attendants moved me to a seat with a working TV. Long story short Delta as an airline was terrible but their employees did their best to help me with what limited options they had to work with.
This flight was excellent. Left and arrives ahead of schedule. The plane was only half full and they actually let people lay down in rows of empty seats. The crew was super kind to a large family with a bunch of kids who wanted to be closer together. I think Delta purposely avoids turbulence more than other airlines because I never experience jarring flights, even the red eyes. They served two meals onboard (which were honestly pretty gross but they are doing their best). Also the newer planes have really cool lighting that helps with jet lag because they mimic the sunset and sunrise colors, and have polarized windows that extend “night time” until they are ready to land in the morning. Pretty cool.
They changed plans after I had checked in and had my confirmed seat. They changed my comfort seat to main cabin and even though there were 4 available comfort seats showing, I wasn’t able to pick one. When I asked at the counter if I could switch back to my comfort she said no.. bc someone else may have higher status than me which is ridiculous bc I was originally comfort. On the flight, I asked the flight attendant to switch and he said once they closed the doors he’d let me know, and he never said anything to me again. Plus we were an hour late arriving, because apparently we weren’t cleared to land and we had to circle. Not sure what’s up with Delta lately, but this was a crappy experience.
The airport at Bucharest is a nightmare. Rude agents at the Delta partners desks and no directions for finding the correct place to go. Boarding at Amsterdam took over one and one half hours by the time we were sent through three security lines at the gate. No explanation for why we were herded through one line and then sent to another and then finally through another security procedure where they wiped us down for something. Atlanta was probably normal for there. All three legs of the flight were late but I did make it home after a very frustrating and exhausting 24 hours. At this moment I feel as if I will never go anywhere again,.

I was told to check through my carryon bag even though it wasn't any heavier or larger than my flight out to Paris. Very upset as they charged me $100 for it and they didn't give me a chance to take medication out of the bag nor my laptop. So they basically placed an illegal item in the checked bag area below the plane. This is not comforting to know. I was not offered any help at the airport even though I'd arranged for "Accessibilty services well in advance of the day I needed them. I plan on taking this up with the ADA and the FAA to share my grievances on how that was handled.
Flight canceled without notification
My biggest complaint about this flight wasn't with Delta itself, but with the man next to me who half way through the flight decided he didn't need to wear his mask anymore. With so many headlines in the news of people going insane on flights about wearing masks, I wasn't about to ask him to put it on. I was disgusted by his lack of concern for the law and the health of those travelers around him. I know that Delta Flight Attendants did not sign up to be the mask police, but I really wish someone would have told him to put a mask on. People like him are ruining what would have otherwise been a really great flight/traveling experience. I'm happy Delta is bringing back meals on longer flights (in first class). The food was good but I am excited for the day when actual meal service returns. Maybe when people like my seat mate start wearing their masks and following the rules we can go back to having nice things.
