On early morning of April 6, 2009, Delta from Newark (to St. Thomas, USVI), with a stopover in Atlanta...the plane lands, we are 5 mins. from the scheduled Delta flight to St. Thomas...and the plane leaves w/o us (and about 12 other ppl on that plane). They cannot put us on another flight until 10 the next morning. The taxi driver in St. Thomas guessed the airline was Delta...someone else (in the airline bus.) told us that Delta is awful. I had no idea this would happen; have always avoided connecting flights. Travelocity booked this trip. I thought 25 mins. between flights was odd, but I genuinely believed that the plane would wait for a connecting flight, esp. if it was Delta to Delta. Needless to say, no compensation. Be careful.
