Six of us were scheduled to fly Delta r/t to Memphis for my niece’s wedding weekend. Taking of around 10am Friday so we’d get there in plenty of time for the dinner that night. Plane’s waiting at the gate when we got there. Great. Except we’re first delayed an hour, then two, then four, because Delta has mismanaged the crew schedules. We finally get on, taxi out to the runway — and have to go back to the gate because of equipment problems. And then wait for an assessment of the problem. And then deplane. And then wait for a replacement plane, which of course doesn’t exist so the flight is cancelled, SIX HOURS after it was supposed to take off. Delta’s solution? Fly to Atlanta, stay in a hotel overnight, then take an early morning flight to Memphis. No thank you. We got a flight to Birmingham and drove three hours to Memphis at midnight. Cost an additional $300 for the Hertz van. Missed the Friday night festivities. Three days later, the return flight was cancelled too, costing us an additional day off work. NEVER AGAIN!
