All the first class and premium fliers were called to board the Delta plane. Our group was announced and we stood in line for far too long a time--going on 20 minutes. After a number of passengers had boarded the plane, we were told that we should consider checking our carry-on pieces. We each had a carry-on, and I had a purse, which I am able to put under the seat in front of me. At the end of the jet-way, we were forced to give up our carry-ons because the overhead bins were full. Yet people ahead of us were allowed to board with over-stuffed back packs and over-stuffed duffle bags, none of which will fit under the seat. That particular passenger put BOTH pieces into the overhead bins, because neither of the pieces could fit under the seat. He was not the only one allowed to board with extra pieces and over-size bgs.
The airlines need to be consistant in following regulation sizes and number of pieces.
Why pay money to be treated like this? I don't think I'll fly Delta again unless it is absolutely unavoidable.
The single aisle is so narrow that the food/beverage cart can barely pass the seats. If you want to use the restroom and the cart is in the aisle, you have to wait until the flight attendants finish the service and have moved the cart to the very back or the middle galley.
It used to be that the in-cabin temperatures were so low that one had to wear a heavy sweater. Now the pilots keep it so warm that I feel like I've run around the high school track in summer.
In the past flying was fun and exciting to look forward to. Today flying is the pits.
