Great staff !

Feb 29, 2020

Disconnect on my baggage pick up. I looked at the display screen and it did not show what station the Newark flight bags would be at. I waited a while and finally walked down to the other end of the airport and happened to see a couple of bags going around. One of which were mine. Nothing on the display stating what flight they were from. I could have left the airport much earlier if I was notified where the bags were.

Nothing special. Short flights. Uncomfortable seats, despite the extra leg room for 2 people totaling $100.

Had service dog, very tight seating in bulk head because of slanted wall. Small plane. My poor seat mate (stranger) had very little room.
