Re: Delta pax endure 12 hour delay

Who knew that the second largest airline in the world would have a long delay once and a while? Must be a slow news day at Fox... So you find a 12 hour delay acceptable than SMH. As a customer I find it appalling that I would be expected to endure a 12 hour delay for something as ridicules as this....
