Nothing super special but overall good staff

Terrible food. For an option that is supposed to appeal to a mass number of tatstes it has a number of obscure ingredients that overwhelmed my palate and made it difficult to swallow. In addition, upon check in for my return flight, seats were not assigned until moments before boarding, which was confusing and hectic and caused unnecessary anxiety. The LAX airport seating area at thermal three for Delta flights is frankly unacceptable. Sever lack of seating and confusion. Hundred of people sitting and standing in mass chaos waiting for dozens of flights.
