    Hang on. How much did your ticket cost you?

    If you got it free or discounted you need to disclose that:

    That is something you owe your readers.

    This is a simple ethical decision.

      It was neither free nor discounted. It was a paid one way Premium Select ticket JFK-NRT. I know the disclosure rules very well and unlike many I actually follow them. But I appreciate your concern and questioning my integrity all at once.

        Wonderful. Because I was baffled that an article on Delta buying non-American aircraft did not highlight their hypocrisy in trying to prevent American consumers from flying the airlines they choose. Namely Delta’s role in the “Chapter 11 Three” trying to ban Gulf carriers.

    Good grief. Why on earth are they flying the A350 from Detroit? What waste!

    So it looks like Delta kept first class – now called Delta One – significantly downgraded business class to Premium Select, and left economy just as cramped and uncomfortable as before. Or am I missing something?

      You hit the nail on the head. Only missing part: corporate travelers can buy ‘Delta One’ since it’s sold as business and not first.
