Nice short on time flight.

Feb 12, 2020

Do not understand the big difference between basic economy and economy plus. It is very tiring to have to deal with all the segregation. After all it is a seat on the same plane going to the same place. Why so many price variations.

Dec 21, 2019

6 hours of delays for 4 hour of air time - horrible on time -

Dec 16, 2019

The seats on this shirt flight were at least normal recline before pushing the recline button. Unlike the first flight where you had to sit totally strait up and the seats did not recline.

Seats to small
