Delta just pushed the time up and would have to leave the client wayyy too early on Thursda and take a 5:30am flight out Monday. AA can't be that bad right?

What makes delta / united so much better? Sure, planes are old, but that means they also have more leg room. And sure, delays are relatively higher than other carriers, too - but they aren't THAT much higher... delays still happen everywhere.

It isn't that bad....

Ya I feel like if I never had to fly aa again id take the poker.

Been on AA for six months Poe same reason. I'd take the poker too.

Stick with delta. Take the 5:30 direct on Monday and leave when you want on Thur by taking a lay over. It's not bad, especially if thru ATL.

Jeez what route?

Delta's service is better, United tends to have better route options for many - but their service is worse.
