Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA.

Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"
