Can I ask for miles on delta - they are deplaning us after delaying the flight. They do not have another aircraft lined up... I took this flight so I could get a full night rest for work and now won't

Of course you can, just be try to be nice about it

Wait until after you arrive. Depending on how long the final delay is, you may get more points. As P1 said, be nice about it. You won’t need to push hard for them to offer points. Just say more or less what you said in your OP

Do you ask at the airport or can I call delta to ask?

The Twitter folks have been awesomely helpful. Never tried points, but other requests were fairly considered
