I had the WORST travel experience.
Way home: flight canceled twenty minutes after I recieved a phone call saying the flight was on time; rerouted through two cities; flight in final city delayed by hours; got on tarmac and flight was further delayed; Nazi flight attendant would not let me call fiance to tell him I would be late as "the cabin doors were closed" (we were sitting at the gate); one suitcase was lost
Way back: accidentally forgot I had a bottle of Tanqueray in my carry-on and it was confiscated (that was all my fault
); almost missed first flight; first flight is delayed on tarmac for de-icing; first flight lands and sits on the runway for twenty minutes because "our gate isn't ready"; consequently I have to make it from A1 to D22 in 10 minutes; I make it; my bags don't.
The next day I got a call from the airport that my bags were ready for pick-up. Only one was there. The other one was in Roanoke. (At least they were close) Why? I don't know and either do they. It went through Alberta, CA, Alaska, texas, and back through roanoke before getting back to me.
Finally, I paid $60 to check my bags so I applied for a reimbursement. I get a e-mail today that says they have no record of me paying, so I can't be reimbursed.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!
NEVER, EVER FLY DELTA.
