Not cool, Delta.
I found a flight out of OKC the next morning, and came to Delta with my plan – and told them i’d like to be compensated for my time and trouble….. they appreciated my proactive approach and gave me the following:
and $400 in FLIGHT CREDIT.
First Class – my first time in first class, might i add – was cool. This was pretty much what happened.
– Sat down in my larger, extra leg room: Ooo. This looks cozy. But i’m 5’2” – does it look like i need much extra leg room?
– Attention from Flight Attendants: Yes, a water prior to take off would be lovely. And you’ll put my bag in the overhead bin for me? Muchos gracias.
– Unlimited Free Drinks: it was a 6am flight. i felt obligated to get a Bloody Mary. but i already had 3 Free Delta Drink Tickets… so i didn’t really need it. But i guess i can use those on my next flight 🙂
– Flight Attendants Checking on you every 5 min: I’m fine!!!! I just got here! Leave me alone i don’t need another drink. Oh, but that free banana and bag of Sun Chips look nice. Thanks!
and this was all prior to take off.
i felt very fancy! and it was comfortable with my complimentary blanket and pillow in my extra large seat.
but i’d never ever ever pay more than a $50 upgrade charge to do it; average domestic round trip first class tickets are 60-75% more expensive than normal flights – and all you get is about $25 in added value.
maybe $50, if you keep the drinks flowin.

But a very cool experience nonetheless 🙂
Now – where to go with my 2 freebies and $400? Any suggestions?
Unfortunately none of this is applicable to foreign travel…. so looks like i’m keepin it States side!
