The only thing I see Delta doing around Atlanta is putting up billboards everywhere. I'm sure they donate to great causes. Honestly, what company that size doesn't? I posted this in the other thread, but BANKS donate more of their profits than Delta does. Greedy bankers.

Just because they're local doesn't get me over the hump of the b.s. they shove down customers throats.

And a 2 million miler should be lifetime Gold. That gets a little bit of something. Maybe Econ Comfort or something once a blue moon. But you have to buy the $50-100 more expensive Main Cabin ticket just to be eligible for an upgrade lulz....what a f'in load of crap. "Sure, you can buy the cheapest seat that is closest in price to our competition, but don't expect any upgrades if you otherwise qualified because we just don't value you that much anymore. We know we're a monopoly and you'll fly us anyways".

So grateful for Delta - just like Atlanta, it’s just some things homers will be loyal to - Delta is one of them. No airline has match the amount of money Delta has given back to its employees the past three years. Anyone remembers the old Delta commercials that shows the L-1011 landing and little girl saying “it’s grandma”.

Thanks for the positive commentary about a hometown loyal friend and true to Atlanta instead of disparaging comments about a company that has interjected an additional $1 billion dollars into the local economy from their own profit and hires over 30,000 Georgians directly.

Itís like people walk around with blinders on. I donít give a **** how much they give to their employees when considering the methods used to obtain those funds. Wake up people. They would have left those dollars in that same local economy if they didnít pry it out their customers hands, who are also mostly local.

I usually fly Southwest when I need to check baggage because their two free bags policy usually makes them a better deal.

It's all taxpayer money, anyway.

If we didn't bail Delta out in 2001, it would be gone.

AND, Delta totally wiped out all of its shareholders in 2007 when it emerged from bankruptcy: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/de...rom-bankruptcy

So screw Delta.
