Trip confirmed; and fuck Delta airlines

It’s true. I’m heading to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. You may recall my bleg for advice on booking flights. The cheapest rate I found last week was at Delta.com. So, I proceeded to book my flight. After I went through, chose my flight, chose my return flight, entered credit card info and generally thought my transaction was done, their page gives me a message that they’re sorry, but they just sold out. No problem, I think, just pick a different departure flight. Same thing. All the way through the process (including giving them my credit card info), and they’re sorry but it just sold out. I did that three times total. I’ll never use Delta again. I used Expedia, who, while their price was only about $20 more, actually, you know, had fucking tickets to sell.

    I’ve been having the same problems with Delta’s site. I usually check Expedia, then hop to Delta if it appears that’s the flight I want. But sometimes you can’t find the flight on Delta’s site. It seems to be much worse in that respect. Very kludgy. Unfortunately, I still have to deal with them since I travel so much … and I hate paying Expedia a pound of flesh every time I book there.

    On the other hand, Delta has one of the better airline sites (that I use) when it comes to managing itineraries after they’ve been booked. (USAir is the worst).

    DOn’t trust s much EXPEDIA. They ruined my trip and they tried to steal money from my credit card for an airline ticket they failed to deliver. Later I found that EXPEDIA is listed in the top ripoff link at the bad business bureau ( http://www.ripoffreport.com ) and has two “dedicated” websites due to poor customer support and lies: http://www.victimsofexpedia.com and http://www.shameonexpedia.com

    Kind regards
