That's remarkable behaviour. Well done, a true civic action

It is certainly a turn up for the industry. Perhaps Delta is beginning to understand the power of social media.

Well, a true publicity stunt anyway. It got them an incalculable amount of positive, free advertising. And yes, you can bet they understand the power of social media.

They aren't a charitable organization.

[yep, I'm a bit of a cynic]

At least it's a good and kind way of gaining free publicity. And, let's not forget, an extremely poor show by American Airlines!

Almost as much free publicity as this stunt from a few decades back. It really got a lot of press and made the airline appear to be something it really wasn't (isn't)

Guess, you have a grudge against DAL bafanguy! I think I still prefer their positive way of gaining publicity in contrast to a certain European Loco airline whose name I won't mention! Good on you Delta!

I don't think there is a divide here. They did an action which helped some stranded students, and if they got some cheap publicity, so what? The airline that dumped their passengers will no doubt also get some publicity. Win Win.

No, not really. That wouldn't do me any good. I just know what I see when I see it.
