      I tried to travel to London from LAX on May 13 to visit my daughter. I showed my pass, which I have seldom used. I am 81 years old. I was refused a non-rev, on the basis that my son, Captain ***** *****, had taken me off his list of favored family members! I think he disapproved of my remarriage. I don't think that it is good policy on the part of Delta to become mixed up in family squabbles in this way. I paid for all his ticket ratings, and planned his flying career with Delta. This is putting power where it does not belong. What do other members feel about this? Opinions please.

      That sounds like a tough break! I wonder if you are right that he did that due to disapproval of your marriage. I doubt Delta cares what he does with his pass — they just do what he asks them to do. I’m sorry that happened, especially you arriving at the airport without having been informed by your son. Hopefully you can work things out and he can reinstate you. good luck and let us know!

      Talked too soon. Captain ***** ***** informed me that he conditioned my travel pass to England that I would promise not to attempt to visit my daughter and grandchildren in Norfolk, which he knew was the purpose of my visit. And there I was, packed and ready to go today. A row followed, and now we are totally estranged. Does Delta maintain a HR department? If so, they should take some interest in this. Their pilot employee uses the pass as currency to blackmail his parent! Disturbing to say the least.

      He’s doing nothing wrong as far as Delta policies. I can’t believe his own father wrote his full name on a public website and is urging HR to look into this. I mean, what if it actually was violating a policy and you got him fired from Delta? Over something as small as a plane trip. You are free to just buy one yourself, and others don’t have a “right” to use the employee’s benefits if the employee doesn’t want them to, regardless of reason.

      Your paranoid response is even more disturbing. Pilots don’t get fired for moral irresponsibility off the tarmac.
