Default No cancellations

How does delta figure their “no cancellation” info they plaster everywhere? No less than 3 weeks ago, we brought in a jet from an intl trip, wrote something up (it was not a mx base), they shipped the wrong part to fix it and the outbound cancelled. It even said that on the app when I checked. About a week later I saw Delta’s big banner on the deltanet about “no cancellations for 100 days” or some such thing. Fake news?

I’ve seen the same thing. It’s one of those things I’ve quit worrying about but I’d love to know.

Extended delays do not count. MX issue that evening, move PAX onto another flight, and ferry the airplane next day under the same flight number. Tada! Never cancelled!

I know a captain that got called for a green slip to fly a jet from SEA to PDX and back empty both ways. I asked him why and he said that they needed to show completion for the flight number. That is how they get away with saying no cancellations!

Flew an empty airplane just to pick up flight attendants to make it a revenue flight. I think they said 48hrs after originally scheduled. The station didn't bother cleaning the plane or catering or dumping the lav. Apparently the FAs needed to be on board for it to operate as a revenue flight. No pax, they had all been accommodated over a day prior.

"Worlds Best Most Admired Airline" Ha.

Nothing but a house of cards filled with smoke and mirrors. Always has been.

The only thing that surprises me is that people are surprised to hear stories like this.

The government needs to modify its definitions of performance, they are incredibly wasteful, especially in the era of reducing carbon emissions.

You’re such an expert all things Delta (sarcasm). You’re unfortunate experience with Comair doesn’t make that so.

Bitter and resentful is no way to go through life.

Tell us, Warren, when will this "House of Cards," fall?
