I had a meeting scheduled for yesterday and two associates coming into BHM from IND. I tried to contact the meeting sponsor at 6AM to find out if we were still on but with a lack of cell phone towers, power, and internet in North Alabama; no luck. By the time my colleages arrived (Late on DL) the meeting had been cancelled by the sponsor with a text message. Delta's response was a $450.00 charge per ticket to rebook them on a return flight yesterday instead of their scheduled departure from BHM this morning. Sorry, two words for DL on this one PISS POOR!
