Mar 3, 2020

Unfortunately they ran out of the sandwich that I wanted to order as I was seated toward the back of the plane. Other than that everything was great. I especially liked the screen and plugs that were made available on the seat in front of me!! ;)

Feb 27, 2020

Seats are way too small for many large travelers, makes sitting next to them very uncomfortable

Feb 17, 2020

We arrived EARLY!!

Feb 12, 2020

Attendants should speak slower and clearer when making announcements. We were unable to understand most of what they were saying.

This flight was way better than my flight on American Airlines that I took to Phoenix.

Dec 23, 2019

A bit costly without entertainment and the food is terrible

Dec 18, 2019

Sometimes the flight attendants are very chatty when people are trying to sleep!

Dec 1, 2019

Even though the flight departure was very delayed, there was excellent communication via text that allowed me advance notice and planning opportunities.

Pilot took great care in landing in rough weather
