Out of control party on the way to Mexico

Date: 7 February 2012
Flight: Delta, flight 389
Location: en route to Los Cabos, Mexico

Delta 389 was a scheduled revenue flight which Delta gifted their summit winning employees a free, all inclusive trip to Los Cabos, Mexico. Although the flight was fully booked, there were only 12 revenue passengers on a Boeing 757 aircraft. The flight crew announced that this was the premier Delta reservation employee benefit and there would be free alcohol for the entire flight.

Several passengers displayed obvious signs of public intoxication but were continuously served more alcohol by the flight attendants, to the point they became loud, disruptive, verbally abusive and with disregard of safety regulations. The flight attendants overlooked the seat belt lamps while the party continued in the aisles.

At one point a passenger stood on a seat and demanded more alcohol, which the flight attendant obliged. I felt that i was endangered by these actions and was appalled that a scheduled flight would be tolerant of this. I have contacted the airline directly and they apologized and offered 9000 bonus miles. I don't believe they should be able to operate in such a manner, displaying total disregard for the safety of revenue passengers.

I have a video that I shot with my phone to back up all of my statements.

I also have a copy of all correspondence with Delta to date.

UPDATE 30 April 2012: Ken recently contacted and reports that Delta has aggressively responded to his letter, that he was able to receive a sincere apology from a very high ranking Delta official, and that he is happy with this resolution.
