Traveling with a 1 year old is tough. Nice to have entertainment on the plane and friendly staff

I would like to mention Erin, our flight attendant from SAN to DTW who came to the rescue as my two kids started to loose it for being tired. She was amazing; offered them juices and a bag of treats while we waited on the tamarac. She difused what could have been a nightmarish red eye with two tired kid. Erin, you ROCK!!!

As a 6 foot 1 inch person, I was very uncomfortable in the seat. I did feel like a canned sardine in my seat.
