The ticket agent in DC was helpful but not friendly she was borderline nasty to me. It was an early flight on Wednesday, l get it, but her unsmiling unfriendly demeanor was not doing anything for me.

The flight was delayed due to bad weather on our route. Delta never gave up. We waited in the plane for 2 hours ready to take off, but then had to return to the gate a get off because they had to refuel. We boarded again within 30 minutes and took off. Our Pilot took us the long way around to avoid storms but got us there! I just so appreciate that they didn’t take the easy way out and cancel the flight. They never gave up! Kudos!

Short flight. Modern plane. Full flight but didn’t feel over crowded

I think this flight was so great because it was only half full, so there was plenty of room in the overhead bins and I got the aisle to myself.

PIT flight was delayed 3 hours but staff kept us informed. I could see they care. Rebooking was done very efficiently. Thank you. Flight attendants have beautiful outfits. And big thank you for telling me at the end of the online booking that the flight is from DCA. I normally fly from IAD and I am sure I would have gone to IAD. Overall was great.
