This just sickens me. I thought Delta was learning its lesson, but evidently not.

There is absolutely no excuse for doing this to a disabled passenger, much less a wounded Marine. Delta should give him (and all other disabled-in-the-line-of-duty veterans) free business class rides for the rest of his life.

It's not Delta's job to upgrade passengers for free. It's our job, us civilians and citizens.

We, the public, are in debt to our disabled veterans. We should pony up and give them all [all veterans disabled in the line of duty, that is to say] upgrade cards: if they pay coach fare, as part of their GI benefits, the nation picks up the upgrade to business class. And we should tax ourselves to fund this. How about an excise tax on business and first class tickets, sufficient to cover the cost of the program? Said tax would never fall in the needy; it would tend to conserve on fuel, and it would get the job done and done right.

In fact, Gafford added, two first-class passengers offered to switch seats with Brown, “but the flight attendant said we have to go. How many times have we sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes? You could close the door and still make an adjustment.” The Texas native blasted the crew for being “hard as woodpecker lips.”

So even not one, but 2 people offered their seats, but Delta refused... How fucking long does it take to wheel someone to first class, and have that person find a place in economy class?

AFAIC, they should give business/1st class seats to disabled veterans if they're available, and be a little more lenient with their time rules. What a bunch of asses.

Delta is a scummy airline. Had an FB friend talk about how her family, which had bought the tickets for a flight some time ago, ended up being on an overbooked flight, and they were the ones who couldn't go.

Daughter had to buy Air France tickets in a big hurry to get them from France to England.

If they really, seriously had to take off right then, why couldn't they switch them after they were at 10,000 feet?
