The captain has just turned off the fasten seat belt sign and you reach for the compartment in front of you and grab Delta Airlines in-flight magazine thinking you’ll pass the time leafing through the pages. Little did you know, you were about to be introduced to the wonderful world of Detroit!
Delta’s Sky Magazine has put together an incredible 42 page spread about the fair and often misunderstood city of Detroit featuring none other than Dan Gilbert and Quicken Loans. Delta carries people to 348 destinations in 64 countries around the world. Many of these people probably have no idea about some of the truly amazing things Detroit has to offer. Things like: Good Girls Go To Paris – a creperie started by a former French teacher, that we are home to the largest historic market district in the country or that you can drive to Chicago, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh and Buffalo from Detroit in 5 hours or less.
