Delta Air Lines came to the rescue of a group of Oklahoma elementary school students who were left stranded at an airport after American Airlines canceled their flight to Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Delta chartered a spare plane to take 41 fifth graders and their adult chaperones from James L. Dennis Elementary School in Oklahoma City to Virginia after they got stuck at Oklahoma City’s Will Rogers World Airport, Delta spokesperson Drake Castañeda confirmed to USA TODAY on Tuesday.
This is why I fly Delta whenever I can. The one time I flew American it was an absolute shit show with my final leg having three flights canceled because the weather at the destination “might get bad” and then “was too bad to fly”. When I got back to work a day late I asked my boss and he said that the weather had been just fine the day before.
