This survey is bad - too constraining. Flight was fine, plane was old. Bad turbulence almost the whole way - nothing you can do about that, so mostly appreciate that we arrived safely.

After several delays, the flight crew being tardy was unreasonable.

Dec 20, 2018

Arrival gate at SJC was A11 but baggage carousel was B3, Pilot advised it as a short walk but it was a very long hike. It made me regret voluntarily checking my carryon.
