No movie or seat back screens for entertainment. Plane was very warm but staff was excellent.

The worst part about this trip was that we got in 40 minutes early but a storm hit as we were on the runway. That prevented the outbound planes from leaving the gate. We stood on the runway for 90+ minutes until we were able to de-plane.
