Were there any snakes on the plane?

We had booked main cabin seats together. There were plenty of unassigned seats (learned this from talking to people in the boarding area who didn’t have a seat assignment).

like

Did you previously have seats together? Or was it a ticket you couldn’t choose seats before hand?

Were there open seats?

Was it basic economy? If so, that’s the point

No, not basic economy

OP: don’t take points. Sit together

When you booked, did you book direct or through Expedia, etc? Sometimes those sites don’t confirm seats, so they put you wherever. And, you go to the bottom of the service queue

Did you get upgraded?

Flights often swap airplanes without notice so they may have reassigned your seating as well.

Pwc 1 we tried. Gate agent wouldn’t move us back together. Obviously sitting together is better than points

We booked direct on the delta website

But were your new seats upgrades?

Something is missing in the story. Haven’t you checked the app? A consultant that too PM who bought normal delta direct should have just used the app.

Couldn’t you just ask the people sitting there to please move? You’re asking an aisle to swap for a middle. Maybe find the smaller person and buy them a drink

Also how far was the flight? I used to get all worked up about this kind of stuff. If it makes you feel better fight them. If not then just try and stay cool. It’s only a small part of your life and you will be able to together again on the other side. If you end up asking for points. Come back and let us know what you get :)
