25. I understand and empathize with your frustration

But it's really not the airline's responsibility to make sure passengers have the correct travel documentation. It's on the passenger to confirm travel requirements and make sure they have the right documentation. The airlines enter the information into passenger records as a courtesy, because it saves time and for homeland security purposes.

That said, Delta does have this information on its website and my recollection is that, when purchasing a ticket, passengers are urged to click on the international travel information link that takes you to a page that reads: "When you’re traveling outside of the United States, make sure you have all required travel documents. A passport is required for all international travel. Remember, the name on your boarding pass must match the name on your government-issued passport. In general, your passport must be valid for at least six months beyond the period of intended stay in a foreign country. Also, be sure to check to see if a visa is needed to visit your destination country." https://www.delta.com/us/en/check-in-security/required-travel-documents/travel-from-the-us

I got burned once in a similar situation and since then always check everything myself since I learned the hard way that the only actually obligation the airlines have is to provide transportation and everything they do above and beyond that is a courtesy.
