There needs to be restrooms in the back of the airbus as well. Always a long line

better than i expected from a domestic airline

Delta should really train their staff more. I was very surprised at the callousness of the gate agent when she complained to me about families with babies. Also, one of the flight attendants clearly did not want to be there. Delta is a good airline and I choose it because I will never fly United. But, I think an employee training in sensitivity might be in order.

I was surprised that there was a large dog in the seat ahead of me. Dog was too big to be totally in front of and under seat of owner. I am glad I wasn't the one next to the dog. I for sure would have complained. The dog was in the foot space of its owner and the passenger next to the owner. Why are larger dogs allowed, especially on a 13 hr flight.
