300px-Delta_logo.svg.pngGreat Publicity for DELTA airlines - the second or third biggest airline in the world. And they've only just come out of a Chapter Eleven bankruptcy too.

Delta Flight 6499 JFK to DFW on June 25 2007 experienced more than just a routine delay...for seven hours the plane was stuck on the ground while maintenance was carried out and crews taken on and off. During that time No Food was provided to the passengers - not even for the children aboard.

After re-arranging the deckchairs on Delta earlier this year, some bright Advertising jerk came up with a brand-new slogan - "Change Is:__________"(in which the blank was filled according to the context of the slogan's usage) as their slogan. Hmmm....perhaps their new slogan should be "Customer Service is:___________"
