    **** Delta. That whole flight crew on that plane should be fired. That is no way to treat someone who served and lost his legs.

    I hate Delta now. The good news is, we've added "hard as woodpecker lips" to our vernacular.

    To hear a member of our fine military say this just breaks my heart, INEXCUSABLE!!!

    I'm sure he was probably talking shit and trying to fight every single person on the flight crew. Stupid Jarheads just a bunch of hot heads. Bout time to get rid of the Marine Corps all together!

    You are a diseased POS. What in the hell would even prompt your post? Your lame, "For what it's worth when I heard this story this morning I cancelled a flight I had on Delta next week." is equally pathetic.

    Am I missing some details? He was wheeled to the back of the plane and bumped into some chairs?

    How about where two people in first class offered to switch seats with him but the flight crew refused to allow that to happen. Was mentioned multiple times in article.

    Delta screwed me on luggage & customer service a few years ago. Unfortunately this doesn't surprise me. Delta is awful.

    That was bad customer service, but didn't strike me as "write an article about it" bad.

    Being that the man is a veteran that became disabled while serving our country, it amplifies the situation. Nobody should be treated that way especially a disabled vet.

    nobody should stay in their assigned seats? It wasn't like he was downgraded from first class to coach because he was disabled.

    So he wants and expects special treatment?
    I thought most disabled people want to be treated like every other person. In this case he was. He was given poor airline service just like every regular joe.

    This is bullshit, people on flights have pre-assigned seating and it has nothing to do with the fact he is ex-military or lost his legs, they will put anything down on paper and exaggerate just to sell the news... !!!

    Sounds to me like his escort buddy was a bit of a **** to let this go down this way.

    And why wasn't be boarded first? He's obviously handicapped and should have gotten on first. Or did he not go up when they ask for people who need assistance. Me thinks there is more to this story.

    Like the man above me said, anything to sell papers.
