Good

Sep 1, 2018

I was going leased with the overal service on my flight back to San Jose. I only checked one box because that’s all I found to be a positive, though. None of the other items fit.

Jun 20, 2018

I wish that I didn't have to select my seat just prior to leaving, because I was traveling with minors. The return flight though had seats with my children, so I didn't have to make any changes.
