‘The volumes are beyond anything we have ever seen’: Delta hold times won’t improve until fall – USA Today
This is fantastic. On the earnings call, USA Today’s Dawn Gilbertson asked Delta how people should reach the airline considering its phone hold times are crazy long and it stopped responding to Twitter direct messages.
