Excellent!!! Happy holidays

Dec 8, 2019

Eight open ‘exit row’ seats were strictly unavailable to others because someone else paid $25. Someone else got ripped off, so no one else can now sit more comfortably for 3 hours. Pathetic.

Flight delayed

Well I arrived in one piece. It was a windy turbulent flight, so if the flight crew hadn’t been experienced, we wouldn’t have.

I hate the middle seat.

Fly from ROC to ORD was great. Gary CZ was our attendant and he was wonderful! Funny, friendly, and nice! Seats were comfy and roomy. Flight from ORD to TUS seats were way too tight, NO legroom. I’m 5’8” and my knees were jammed against the seat in front of me. Very tight, and I am not overweight! I do not know how heavy people can stand to fly in those seats......cruel.
