We had weather delays that set us back, but everything else about the flight was great

It would be alot easier if the flight out gate was closer to the drop off gate,too much running around to get there,it's really stressful l

Jun 3, 2019

Pretty good service for what I paid I guess. Everybody tells me that I paid rock-bottom price and therefore don't deserve any better. I think I paid a chunky amount. Overall I'm happy.

We just loved our flight attendant she was really great!!

Dec 31, 2018

Tiny seats, flight was late, nearly missed our connection, but staff did a terrific job, very helpful. It beat our outgoing Delta flight where they were separating parties that did not pay the extortion fee to sit together. Delta told us because we bought economy e-tickets through a 3rd party (Orbitz), we could not expect to sit together (even though tickets were purchased in the same transaction).
