Delta Airlines has an internet site where you can find all the information you need concerning the flights schedule (exact arrival and departure times) which can be very useful both if you have to pick someone up at the airport and if you are flying yourself. The site also offers you the service of booking and purchasing a ticket as well as the option of booking a hotel or renting a car.
Sure you will want to save some money on purchasing a ticket. Here is a tip for you then. You can often find the best price not on the airlines website (this applies to all airlines, not just Delta Airlines). So try the discount online booking travel companies as well. They can help you save you money - particularly for short notice trips.
Delta Airlines always takes its customers' requests into consideration. That is why the company is launching a network designed to improve the schedule of on-time arrivals and departures and provide a wider selection of flights.
The changes are to be implemented on January 31, 2005 at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The current "bank" schedule will be replaced with a "continuous flow" of flights in Atlanta. The benefit will be further extended to the rest of Delta Airlines' network. With the implementation of this innovation Atlanta citizens will experience:
-More on-time arrivals and departures.
-Better connecting times, with service every 60-90 minutes (between 8:30am and 9:30pm) to the majority of the 37 top cities served from Atlanta.
-More flight choices to more destinations.
-Less congestion in the Atlanta airport, resulting in smoother check-in and security processing times.
-Less delayed flights due to inclement weather.
