Delta Airlines Complaint - Scared to fly Delta now... any tips?
My family and I are military stationed overseas (4 of us, 2 kids age 7 and 3). We recently bought tickets to fly home from Europe and our last flight is on Delta. We have not been home in almost 2 years and are desperate to be among family again.
I was doing reviews on our flights today in order to prepare for the journey and came upon this site and after reading all of the reviews, I am sick to my stomach and scared to fly with Delta. I am more worried about us getting back to Europe on the way out since our first flight is with Delta, we have another connecting flight in Zurich before arriving to our final destination.
My husband is on pre-approved leave and if Delta messes up our first flight, it will chain react with the rest of our flights and I would hate for my husband to be considered AWOL if we get stuck somewhere because of their horrible lack of responsibility.
Does anyone have any advice to make the trip smoother? I am considering mailing back all of our luggage or at least most of the important stuff because I don't want them to "lose" anything valuable. If the flight in is horrible, then I will rebook with some other airline on the way out.
Gosh, flying Delta makes me feel like I'm going to a shoddy dentist or proctologist- in this case, the latter seems more pleasant.
