Our today’s Delta flight have been canceled without any contacting us. When we went Delta’s desk at airport, they said our flight have been canceled and they couldn’t reschedule. Where is our family vacation? At least, please refund the fee.

And now my #Delta flight to Boston this morning is delayed to 10m With no information other than “it won’t be canceled”. I was supposed to be in Boston at 6pm yesterday.
