The only negative was that my window seat had no window.

Dec 8, 2019

Staff was excellent as was the food

Aug 4, 2019

Felt really irritated when I had to pay $70 per bag. Why not just add it to the ticket price? Ridiculous

Jul 10, 2019

My seat assignment at booking was not the seat assignment at the ticket issue. Not cool.

Good Value !!

Nov 12, 2018

Staff on the plane was helpful while I was on the edge of a panic attack. However, the TSA staff in Newark Liberty International Airport left me to spin into a panic attack and just stood around and watched even after I explained what I needed to help me.

no seat power point :( and expensive checked bags

Oct 12, 2018

Should have new selection for movies and at least a meal should have been included for an international flight

Sep 16, 2018

Strict Luggage requirements and no free meals. But since it was an overnight flight I didn't even miss it
