No leg room. No elbow room. Smallest possible bathroom.

Boarding could have been better even with a full flight. They didn’t board the cabin from the rear of the plane first so those of us that were at the rear of the cabin had little if any room for our carryons. What’s up with that?

Feb 6, 2020

All the flight attendants were friendly and helpful.

Great flight crew.

Really quite painless considering we flew on Dec 23, thanks Delta.

A Labrador Retriever with an estimated weight of 60+ pounds was on the flight. The dog sat in the forward portion of the cabin at the feet of the owner. What if the aircraft experienced turbulence? What would restrain the canine? This is a safety hazard to the passengers and potentially the crew. Why are dogs of this size allowed in the main cabin in the first place??? My luggage must be stowed in an overhead bin; my hand carried bag must be underneath the seat in front of me. Why is a large animal, that is not held in any way shape or form, allowed in the aircraft? This is a contradiction of policy. Please consider influencing the FAA and the airlines in general to cease with this ridiculous allowance for those that happen to own an PET!

My seat was out a place in the back seating area, not to comfy.

Did not appreciate having my only bag - a backpack sized roller bag - gate-checked when there were many people who had BOTH huge roller bags and backpacks take up all the overhead bins.
