Overall a great flight. However, it was way too cold on the plane. Made it difficult to be comfortable.

The TVs all worked on this plane was very nice to see everyone got to enjoy a show on this trip

It is really wrong that they charge to check a bag at the ticket counter, but not at the gate. This also slows boarding because people are forcing their bags overhead.

The gate attendant was fantastic! I have mobility issues and she was kind, compassionate and very helpful. The flight staff was terrific, as well. This was my first time flying Delta in many years. I’ll definitely fly Delta again.

Uneventful flight. Best kind.
