Overall good. Only annoyance is they change the gates and texted me the old gate number at first and they have these big monitors at each gate that should be showing flight info so you know you are at the right gate but instead of flight info on them most of the time they are showing ads for the airlines credit card or miles program.

The Delta flight was great. I got my favorite seat, a window, without even asking. And the flight staff handed out a fruit and cheese platter that was complimentary. The movie selections were good too. Thank you Expedia for organizing my flight.
