    This story shows how an airline, Delta in this case, can send customers to other airlines for life.

    Marine double-amputee’s treatment on Delta flight angers other vets


    The story tells us how this Marine was wheeled to the very last row of an airplane and offers from others to move the guy up to the first class cabin were rejected by the airline.

    Delta, what a class act!

    Sorry, I'm scarely a fan of Delta, but this is being blown way out of proportion.

    He apparently didn't arrive in time to pre-board and didn't pre-request bulkhead/handicapped seating. Normal Delta procedure is to hold back 4-6 seats (usually a bulkhead row) for handicapped access until the flight opens at the gate. If you don't request that, FAA regs don't require that you be seated there.

    They did miss an opportunity when 1st-class passengers offered their seats -- they should have just reversed the wheelchair to front cabin & seated him there.

    Probably held up by TSA!

    Entirely possible, maybe he tested positive for explosives. Have we heard that somewhere today?
