Special thank you to the flight attendant who helped tighten the install on my 4 year old’s car seat! She helped me feel at ease and was so sweet, one of the smoothest experiences I’ve had traveling with a child. Thank you!

All was good on time

Nov 15, 2018

I was moving cross-country with my 2 kids and hadn't slept in 4 days. The staff was really nice and helped me get my life's worth of crap on the plane pre-boarded. There were some very kind passengers who also helped me, but the staff were kind. The gate agents also allowed me to pre-board which made EVERYONE'S life easier lol. The flight crew relocated my poor seatmate so that I could spread out with the baby and sleep. It was basically really a much better flight than it could have been.
