Here comes yet another
amazing nasty horrid enhancement from the Delta mothership. As we all know it is a ridiculous joke that Delta has installed Comfort+ seats on CRJ200 jets. Heck, when you think about it, it is utterly shameful that Delta is keeping these these torture tubes in the air for years and years after the talking heads told us they would be going away (is 2030 soon-ish?)!
Well I hate to tell you this but I have some more bad news to share with you. I have confirmed, with a number of sources inside Delta, that as of 1OCT17 Delta (and Delta connection) flights under 350 miles will only offer 2 beer selections and either a (bad) white or (bad) red wine on the adult beverage side of the drink carts (for Comfort+ & Main Cabin – 1st class unaffected). You understand what this means right?
NO MORE WOODFORD ON SHORT FLIGHTS!
Devastating – Crushing – #KeepDescending worthy enhancement! Does Delta management not understand that for so many of us this is the only reason these horrid short hops on medieval torture jets are even remotely tolerable? That is the hope that maybe, just maybe, they will have stocked enough of the golden liquid to distract us from the horrid pain and suffering all around us?
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY THAT IS NOW ALL GONE!
I am simply speechless – Shocked even! What in the world are the cheap penny pinchers (think Mr. Ham Sandwich) at Virginia Avenue (the address for Delta in ATL) thinking? They have clearly totally lost it that is for sure.
I have reached out to the Delta PR folks and am waiting for an official statement and confirmation of this catering change that I am sure will explain to us all why they are making this adjustment and also justifying why less choice really is in fact good for us and will result in better service for all on-board. I will post that quote once I get it below:
Bottom line – I hate this – and I am sure you do too! I already spend way too much time on short hops to get to Delta hubs to begin with. This latest enhancement not going to make those flights any better. 🙁
But you tell me. Does this change in adult beverage service on short Delta flights upset you or are you simply so accustomed to Delta cut after cut that this is one more reason why you are happy to be ending your loyalty to mother Delta next year and are flying as a “free agent”? – René
