Flight crew announced when we were in rough air and flew into higher altitude to avoid more

Aug 5, 2018

I truly enjoyed the two flights. Both were on time, my luggage was gate checked in cincinnati, and my luggage made it to San Jose perfectly and on time. Also, I am not the most thin woman, so I get a great deal of anxiety before all flights that this will be the flight where I either feel like I'm taking up too much space or would have to ask for a seat belt extender. That is not the airline's problem, but my own, but the level of comfort I felt on both flights seriously made all the difference. I felt 100% comfortable in the roomy seats, and had many inches of extra seat belt, where I sometimes only have a few or barely any. I know it is a small thing, but the amount of calm I felt at that made a world of difference. Thank you so very much for that.
