Very uncomfortable seats.

Feb 12, 2019

Flight was 45 minutes late taking off

Feb 2, 2019

Seats are not good

Nov 5, 2018

I liked not having to gate check my carry on. I appreciated a safe, comfortable, timely flight.

Oct 16, 2018

I do not like the idea of having to pay for our soft drink and snacks when other airlines are complimentary and also having to pay for seats and even carry ons is ridiculous.

Aug 19, 2018

WiFi sucked. My tray was busted.

Aug 4, 2018

Security check at MSP was incredibly fast and efficient. In flight individual seat back entertainment was great. Kept myself busy with games.

Mar 10, 2018

Too many fees is your only downfall. I always feel like I’m getting a great deal when I book and then by the time I board my plane, I’ve spend more than other flights.
